Recently I was visiting a friend’s home and (of course) listening to new finds in music. The first CD that we listened to was released by a “new to me” artist named Melody Gardot. Wow, what a talent! A native of Philadelphia PA, her influences have been the likes of Judy Garland, Janis Joplin, Miles Davis, “The Duke”, Stan Getz and even Latin artists such as Caetano Veloso. Wow, do her haunting vocals stick with you! Some compare her music to that of Nina Simone, but her voice – simply fantastic.
Melody has two albums that I have been able to track down – My One and Only Thrill and Worrisome Heart. Both are Excellent to Incredible! Melody can be viewed on U-Tube, check out “one and only thrill” and “somewhere over the rainbow”
Great stuff. check her out, oh and yes we do have her albums for sale so email us should you care for a copy. They start at $12.00 plus taxes.
