Madeleine Peyroux

 

continued

The accompaniment is less varied than on Dreamland; Peyroux recorded most of the songs with the same jazz combo, similar instrumentation, and similar tempos. She sounds less innocent, more cautious — only natural since she's thirty-one now. Her knack for reinterpreting and reviving classics is still strong, especially on Bob Dylan's "You're Gonna Make Me Lonesome When You Go." Where Dylan sounded excited, anxious to savor everything about his love before she left, Peyroux slows down and lets her love linger, changing a few notes, casually exploring as many feelings as she can.

Peyroux performs at the Ark on Monday, November 8.    (end of article)
