Secular Hymns & Billie Holiday quality!

Artist talk at Huis 23 with Madeleine Peyroux at 18 h!

La Madeleine! She recorded her latest Secular Hymns with a modest cast in a church. The CD also sounds divine, with Peyroux's rapture-inducing covers of Tom Waits, Allen Toussaint, Sister Rosetta Tharpe, Eric Clapton, Townes Van Zandt, Patti Smith, Lee Dorsey... It’s out here via Impulse/Universal.

Allow the latter, plus her typically tender and well-placed timbre and phrasing, to also make clear why MADELEINE PEYROUX very defintitely belongs in the 2017 Jazz100 series.

The Times: '4*/5... a voice that's so captivating, with an unforced, languid quality reminiscent of Billie Holiday that you are drawn in... real elegance.'

The Guardian: '4*/5... intimate exuberance and classic songs... very close to the feel of a Peyroux live show, and one in which she's clearly having a ball.'
