Jazz singer/songwriter glows on this vinyl 45 rpm reissue. - Audiophileaudition
Brilliant reissue of this album on two slabs of 45rpm vinyl - Sound 9.5/10 Music 8/10 HIFI Plus
In a musical landscape ripe with great singers (of which she is one) it is Melody's unique approach to songwriting that sets her apart.
Although her songs often sound like jazz, they defy easy categorization. "...a touch of Peggy Lee's poetry, a hint of Norah Jones and Joni Mitchell..."
Melody's tunes already feel like classics, possessed of a timeless quality rare in today's pop music. The one non-original song here is her brilliant take on the Wizard of Oz chestnut "Over the Rainbow".
Two songs on this album were co-written with Grammy®-Award winner Jesse Harris.
This album achieves an air of sophistication due to the talents of producer Larry Klein (Grammy® Album of the Year winner for Herbie Hancock’s River) and the tasteful orchestrations of Vince Mendoza.
"This is an exceptional album and anyone who thought the great age of the torch singer was over should lend an ear." - The Times of London
"Her songwriting is filled with soft surprise and savvy lyrics..." - SF Chronicle
ORG has done a superb job on this expensive 45 rpm vinyl re-mastering. Gardot’s voice is captured with glowing warmth and pristine clarity. All of the instrumentation is smooth and wraps around the beautiful voice. The tonality of the string section is vibrant. This is comparable to upper-tier digital recording, subject to auditory preferences. The gatefold packaging and plastic sleeves are top-notch. AudiophileAudition 4.5/5
