Madeleine Peyroux - Half the Perfect World (2006)

Aproveitando o post sobre jazz do João, tae o novo disco da Madeleine Peyroux.

"Smokey-voiced chanteuse Madeleine Peyroux's third CD is a lovely collection of after-hours ruminations and should confirm her rise to fame. Credit producer Larry Klein for doing a bang-up job with the album's sound: the elegant, pared-down arrangements are all brushed drums, acoustic guitars, and cool organ licks. But of course it's Peyroux's voice that brings it all home--preferably one where the shades are drawn, embers are smoldering in the fireplace, and the white wine is kept dry. Two-thirds of the songs are well-chosen covers, including a duet with k.d. lang on Joni Mitchell's "River"; a relaxed version of Fred Neil's "Everybody's Talkin'," from Midnight Cowboy; a delicately lilting samba take on Leonard Cohen and Anjani Thomas's title track; Serge Gainsbourg's "La Javanaise," performed in the original French; and Charlie Chaplin's "Smile," from Modern Times. The four originals, all coauthored by Peyroux, easily keep up with such august company, especially "I'm All Right"--written with Klein and Walter Becker, it captures the easy sophistication of Becker's regular band, Steely Dan. Fans of Norah Jones (whose collaborator Jesse Harris cowrote three of the songs) should gobble up this album, but Peyroux is no mere imitator: She's her own, very real thing."
(Elisabeth Vincentelli)

Tracklist: I'm All Right / The Summer Wind / Blue Alert / Everybody's Talkin' / River / A Little Bit / Once in a While / (Looking for) The Heart of Saturday Night / Half the Perfect World / La Javanaise / California Rain / Smile

Kyuss - Muchas Gracias: The best of Kyuss (2000)

"Leave it to Kyuss -- a sorely underappreciated band whose music was so ahead of its time that its huge influence became apparent only after its demise -- to put out a best-of set that really isn't any such thing. In fact, Muchas Gracias: The Best of Kyuss is more of a collector's item, combining nine of the band's would-be hits (four of them in previously unreleased live versions) with no less than six album leftovers and B-sides. Predominantly instrumentals, few of these rarities actually approach the caliber of the band's incredible studio albums (the ultra-heavy "Shine," the frenetic "Flip the Phrase," and the epic "Sandpiper" come close) but Kyuss fanatics are bound to consider them a long-lost treasure nonetheless. For the first-time listener, however, Muchas Gracias paints an incomplete portrait that omits some of the cult heroes' best-known material, including the bludgeoning riffage of "Green Machine" and the space rock thrashing of "Odyssey." Neophytes are therefore advised to pick up either of the band's two best albums Blues for the Red Sun or Sky Valley instead."
(Ed Rivadavia, All Music Guide)

Tracklist: Un Sandpiper / Shine / 50 Million Year Trip (Downside Up) / Mudfly / Demon Cleaner / A Day Early and a Dollar Extra / I'm Not / Hurricane / Flip the Phase / Fatso Forgotso / El Rodeo / Gardenia [Live] / Thumb [Live] / Conan Troutman [Live] / Freedom Run [Live]

Sondre Lerche and The Faces Down Quartet - Duper Sessions (2006)

Em um antigo post que falei sobre o disco Summer Teeth do Wilco, comentei o nome deste cantor e compositor norueguês: Sondre Lerche. Como upei o disco para alguns amigos que já conhecem e gostam, não custava nada também colocá-lo à disposição aqui no blog, ainda mais levando-se em consideração a qualidade da música em questão.

Este disco é o terceiro deste rapaz de 23 anos. Diferentemente dos outros dois antecessores, este disco é total voltado ao jazz. Igualmente aos dois antecessores, este disco mantém a mesma linha no que tange belíssimos arranjos e ótimas canções. Pra quem gosta de boa música, taí a dica! Recomendo MUITO os dois primeiros discos: Faces Down (2002) e Two Way Monologue (2004).
