I'd forgotten how often we saw Magritte

As I discovered earlier tonight that two of my readers had not encountered this music and both felt it was STUNNINGLY good, I'm reposting this video.

Madeleine Peyroux is who got Billie Holiday's voice after she wasn't using it anymore. This particular song is stunning, but I'd recommend her song 'I'm All Right' as well (check the links if you go to youtube to view, it's right there).

  • The original Elliott Smith version is also really excellent, and easy to find on youtube as well (so I won't link to it.)
  • Lovely cover.
    • Ain't it just. She's stunningly good in every other track of hers I own (I have the whole catalogue).
  • That's awesome. :>
    • I say, owning her whole catalog?
      It's only a good introduction. She's stunning.
  • I was mortified the first time someone suggested this lady was Billie Holiday reborn. Then I heard her.

    Mmmmyeah. About the finest female jazz vocalist of our day.
  • heh, going to see her in a couple of weeks. As a favor to a dear one. Does this make me a bad person?
    • Makes you a lucky one. Where's she playing? I saw her at Yoshi's a few years ago - small tables, ours was front and center, we were practically leaning on the stage. She gave an incredible performance.
    • I hope you really enjoy the concert.
