“Soulful and inviting, intimate and poignant, with a voice for the ages” Christian Science Monitor
Back by popular demand, brilliant vocalist Madeleine Peyroux returns to Santa Barbara to perform an inspired mix of soulful blues and jazz numbers from her widely anticipated album, to be released in September 2006. With her stirring, smoke-and-whiskey vocals, Peyroux’s style has rightfully gained comparisons to legendary jazz icon Etta James. Her elegant blend of country ballads, torch songs, and uptown blues evoke the Parisian cafes in which Peyroux came of age as a street performer, while showcasing her passion for the improvisational spirit of jazz.
