The hugely talented Madeleine Peyroux returns, after a tortuous eight-year wait, with her critically acclaimed album Careless Love where she effortlessly blends vintage Jazz with modern and contemporary styles, country rock and acoustic Blues.
Born in America and raised between France and California, Peyroux absorbed numerous styles and traditions, Blues, Jazz and Roots by artists as diverse as Edith Piaf and Fats Waller. Comparisons have been made to Billie Holliday and the strength of her mellifluous alto voice lies in languid and lingering notes and slow fades rather than the bursts, crescendos or wails of some of her counterparts.
All twelve songs from Peyroux’s Album are here, fabulous works of beauty and sweet emotion, faithfully arranged for Piano, Voice and Guitar with complete lyrics. Track 8 is in French.
I love the reocrd and just had to learn the actual playing music. great book always pays to get the real thing instead of thinking you heard it right. enables you to work out your interprutation more easily. Anonymous

This book is basic and easy enough to play. It gives the basic chord structure but most of the score is based around playing the voice part on the piano, which makes it sound a bit like lift music. If you're looking to reproduce some of the nice solos and trills that make the album sound so good then this won't help. Anonymous
