Now Playing: Dance Me to the End of Love by Madeleine Peyroux
Topic: My Life
In case you all haven't heard of her yet, I just wanted to recommend the latest CD by Madeleine Peyroux... my latest favorite and an instant classic. You don't often find albums in which every track is is brilliant. Her voice is a beautiful combination of Billie Holliday, Bessie Smith, Ella Fitzgerald with a little bit of Josephine Baker thrown in. You can listen to portions of the tracks on her website here.
Here is a link to an interview on NPR's weekend edition. You can listen to 3 full length songs from links from that page in addtion to the interview itself.
Watch out Norah Jones... you have some swift competition!
