Madeleine Peyroux

The third album in four years from song interpreter extraordinaire Madeleine Peyroux, Bare Bones is both an extension of the currents of 2004's Careless Love and 2006's Half the Perfect World and a bold step into previously unexplored psychological terrain. Produced like its two predecessors by Larry Klein, this fluid and enthralling new work is Peyroux's most personal yet—hardly surprising considering she had a hand in writing each of the 11 songs, fulfilling a lifelong dream. Also appearing: Kelly Joe Phelps.

Admission:
