what I'm listening to: mellow jazz

(from ramon_perez_terrassa's photostream)

I have been craving mellow, jazzy music for the last week or so and my current playlist includes two of my go-to, slow and sultry divas, Madeleine Peyroux and Diana Krall.

Madeleine reminds me of Billy Holiday. Her Bare Bones album is my current favorite, with the first song, Instead, being my personal mantra now days.

Krall has been on my playlist since the days of Ally McBeal. She does some amazing covers on her Quiet Nights album, which includes a fabulously drawn out version of Walk on By .

Huge Diana Krall fan. Even saw her in concert here in Pittsburgh a few years ago. Isn't she wonderful?? Fave on my playlist too!

One of the highlights of our summer was a misty evening concert of Madeleine Peyroux's. How I love her. She's been the soundtrack for our endless putting-up of the harvest this year. Sweet times.
