Melody Gardot’s My One and Only Thrill released today (April 28) and is #12 on Amazon. Pretty good for an unknown jazz/blues singer on her debut major label album. I’m a little late to order, it so I can only go by the samples, the live performances she did during her chat last week, and Youtube performances. Love it. I wonder if her perfect pitch is a result of her severe Hyperacusis/Tinnitus?
Give the album a try and let me know what you think.
ETA: Free Listening Party
ETA: It hurts me to say this, but I don’t think this album is as good as Worrisome Heart. The stripped down versions of the songs she performed during her chat were fantastic. The songs with the full orchestra – not so much. I love the rawness of Melody’s music and it seems to be lost on this album. Really disappointed in Who Will Comfort Me. Compare it to this version on Youtube and I think you might agree the Youtube version is better.
