Melody Gardot - My One & Only Thrill (2nd Hand CD)
My One and Only Thrill is the second studio album by American singer and songwriter Melody Gardot.
It was released on March 16, 2009, by Verve Records. Three singles were released from the album: "Who Will Comfort Me", "Baby I'm a Fool", and "Your Heart Is as Black as Night".
Amazing though it is, the story of how Melody Gardot overcame the effects of a near-fatal accident to become one of the vocal sensations of 2008 is not the most extraordinary thing about the 23-year-old Philadelphia singer/songwriter. It is simply that here is a voice in a million; one that touches the soul.
My One And Only Thrill is an intensely creative milestone, transcending genre distinctions of Jazz and Blues to offer a haunting personal musical statement that will appeal to all music-lovers.

" . . . Gardot`s distinctive vocal style and her way with a lyric (both sung and written) is nearly always a winning charm; this is a laid-back and gently swinging album for those who appreciate good jazz-inflected singing that doesn`t seek to compete with instrumentalists and is, above all - supremely musical. The orchestral arrangements and solo contributions by the individual featured musicians are excellent . . ."
"My One And Only Thrill" is a delightful album, a jazz/blues performance of the highest quality which is surely destined to become one of the all-time classic albums of the genre, thanks in no small part to Gardot's beautifully intimate, expressive voice and the impeccable arrangement of her originally composed pieces. It ranges from heart-felt to playful without ever resorting to cliché, each composition bursting with creative life, meaning that there is little in the way of pedestrian material here." - Amazon Reviews.
