"This is a fantastic debut album. To my ear Madeleine's voice and vocal style is heavily influenced by Billie Holliday, Patsy Cline and a hint of Edith Piaf. The song selection is terrific, featuring classic jazz/blues/country standards and several of her own compositions. The vocal styling is very reminiscent of 1940's recordings. The audio quality is stunning. Love it!"
"I love the style of this laid back jazz. Madeleine is one of those few female singers that for me have cracked this style of jazz. I can image being in an old style smokey jazz club, after midnight, sipping a Whisky and just soaking up the atmosphere with Madeleine sing these tracks in the background" - Amazon Reviews.
