Madeleine Peyroux ‘The Blue Room’
On her latest album ‘The Blue Room’, Madeleine Peyroux successfully reinterprets iconic classics and makes them her own. Her dreamy, somewhat raw voice, lends depth and emotion to famous songs from Ray Charles’ classic album ‘Modern Sounds in Country & Western Music’. “That album of Ray was a cultural landmark. I have always loved this album, as long as I can remember. I knew that Madeleine would provide the perfect voice for this project”, says producer Larry Klein. And who are we to doubt his words? In addition to the Ray Charles songs, ‘The Blue Room’ features Peyroux’s very personal versions of work by Randy Newman and Leonard Cohen. In 2006, at the dawn of her career, she played a set at the Gent Jazz Festival, and this summer we are delighted to welcome her back. Her relaxed singing style and very personal approach have contributed to her well-deserved reputation as the Billie Holiday of the 21st century.
