Madeleine Peyroux delivers her most bonafide troubadour'd  album in years, possibly since her debut Dreamland. Producer Larry Klein keeps the atmosphere like you're sitting around the campfire and taking in Peyroux's delivery of songs by herself, Klein, Leonard Cohen and others as well as a poemby Paul Eluard. All through the album, Peyroux is in charming mode as she mixes and match with Klein (who adds "video game sounds" to his bass and piano arsenal), Dean parks/g, Brian MacLeod/dr, Pet Kuzma/B3, Patrick Warren/p-key and a rotating caravan of horns, strings, voices and percussion coming in and out like guests at a buffet dinner.
