Melody Gardot

The new hot name in jazz/blues singing. She is perfect, she is sublime. Just 24 years old and she sings like the big ladies of jazz. She started writing music and singing to aid her recovery from a serious car accident. Her interesting story is here and a sample here. All the songs on the cd are little gems. But it would take a heart of stone to remain unmoved by the poignant title track "My One And Only Thrill". One of the best albums for 2009.
