“She [Peyroux] is so good at singing the blues. You can still hear that Billie Holliday influence in her phrasing, and the way she slides up to and down from notes, but her strong tuneful sound, and that honeyed timbre is very much her own.”
Madeleine Peyroux & Paula Cole
A double bill of two red-hot vocalists performing music from their megahit records! Careless Love, Madeleine Peyroux’s breakout recording, helped define a new genre of vocal jazz and featured smart and understated new versions of songs by Bob Dylan, Elliott Smith, Leonard Cohen, and Hank Williams. The record sold half a million copies, and the UK’s Guardian praised it as a “classily produced and coolly graceful set” with an “intelligent choice of terrific songs.” Paula Cole’s album This Fire has a cult following for its no-holds-barred message of female empowerment, thoughtful lyrics, and catchy hooks. The influential recording went double platinum, hit #20 on the Billboard charts, and earned seven Grammy nominations, with memorable hits like “Where Have All the Cowboys Gone?” and “I Don’t Want to Wait.”
