Wonderful concert last night. Madeleine and band performed all the songs that the local jazz station, KPLU, had been playing.  I hadn't purchased any of her albums and I only knew those songs.  I enjoyed 'em. 

What I really enjoyed though, was all the suprises.  A song by Bob Dylan, a song about farming, a song about Paris.  I even enjoyed it when the bass player's cell phone went off during the first sentimental bars of the last song.  The arrangement and delivery of those songs I had not heard before really grabbed me.

One thing that was distracting - the keyboards seemed to have their volumes turned to 11 when everyone else was at 6.  Maybe it was where we were seated (behind the keyboard). 

Anyways, great show!  I definitely need to buy the album to heard what else I've been missing.

I was at Madeleine's show Tuesday in Seattle.  Like you, I was sitting behind the keyboards and found them to be a little overwhelming.  Guess I'll know to get there earlier next time so I can get a better place in line. 

Anyway, I'm fairly new to Madeleine's music so I don't have much insight to offer.  The first time I heard her I thought she could give Billie Holliday a run for her money in a contest to see who sounds the most like Billie Holliday , but by the end of the show Tuesday, Madeleine had really carved out her own space in my ear.  I'm looking forward to hearing more from her.
