    Madeleine Peyroux in Concert

    Singer/guitarist Madeleine Peyroux's band will include Jon Herington on guitar, Barak Mori on bass, Darren Beckett on drums, Sylvia D'Avanzo, 1st violin; three other Boston-based string players will be announced. Decca Records recently released Madeleine Peyroux’s album The Blue Room. The new CD sees Madeleine and longtime collaborator--legendary producer Larry Klein (Joni Mitchell, Herbie Hancock), re-examine Ray Charles’ classic and one of his most controversial albums, Modern Sounds In Country And Western Music.

     

    “Ray’s ‘cultural landmark’ album has always been a part of me,” says Klein. “Madeleine naturally came to mind with this project. Much like Charles who in 1962 jelled R&B, gospel, country and jazz, Madeleine is at a nexus of styles. She comes from the same places, blending jazz, blues, country and pop.”

     

    The duos’ concept was in no way intended to replicate the instrumentation, arrangements, style or sequence of the original album. Instead, Madeleine and Larry represented the artistic freedom Ray exhibited, using imagination to break down musical categories and barriers. What Madeleine and Larry created is a sophisticated album rich in strings, pushing the power of Madeleine’s vocal capabilities – her melody changes, choices of tone and phrasing.
