Standing on the rooftop by Madeleine Peyroux( Recording )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 285 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Acclaimed vocalist Madeleine Peyroux is back with a new captivating sound. Standin' On The Rooftop signals a major sonic shift for Peyroux, as she explores American roots music with a delicate touch and haunting resonance. The new album, out on Emarcy/Decca and helmed by noted producer Craig Street (Norah Jones, k.d. Lang, Cassandra Wilson), features Marc Ribot on guitar/banjo along with Me'shell Ndegeocello on bass and signals a new approach for Peyroux as she carries her jazz sensibilities into rootsier territory. Standin' On The Rooftop includes a gorgeously melancholic folk rendition of The Beatles' "Martha, My Dear," and the eerie, intimate new original song "The Things I've Seen Today," which Peyroux co-wrote with vocalist/violinist Jenny Scheinman. In addition to contributions from Ribot and Ndegeocello, the tracks feature drummer Charely Drayton (Neil Young, Johnny Cash) and guitarist Chris Bruce (Seal, John Legend). Standin' On The Rooftop, her fifth solo album, encompasses a wide spectrum from the lulling, gentle "Lay Your Sleeping Head, My Love" (adapted from the W.H. Auden poem of the same name) and the stunning, spare "Super Hero" to the clever, whimsical "Don't Pick a Fight With a Poet."
