Not all that long ago, bluesy singer Madeleine Peyroux was an American in Paris, performing on the streets with hat in hand. Today, she performs on stage to sold-out crowds. Twenty years after her recording debut, Dreamland, Peyroux continues her musical journey of exploration beyond the ordinary with here most recent Secular Hymns, a spirited and soulful masterwork released on Impulse!/Verve Label Group.
