Celebrated and Award-winning jazz singer, songwriter, and guitarist, Madeleine Peyroux has released her inspired new masterpiece, The Blue Room
. The album is a return to what she is known best for – reinterpreting classics with an emotion and depth that can’t help but touch the soul. The Blue Room
finds Peyroux reinterpreting songs from Ray Charles’ Modern Sounds In Country & Western Music
, as well as others from legendary artists including Randy Newman and Leonard Cohen. The daring album for Charles broke the mold of what was expected from him and Madeleine is the perfect voice to revitalize this seminal classic. Infusing her own vision, Peyroux brings elements of jazz, country and blues into each song, while evoking a depth of emotion and sound of such legends as Billie Holiday, Patsy Cline, Edith Piaf and Bob Dylan.
