The Absence is een creatieve reis voor Melody Gardot. Blijkbaar werd zij geïnspireerd door haar wereldreis en in het bijzonder door een tocht door de woestijn rondom Marrakech. Op het album drijft ze af van rokerige, kleinschalige jazz en gaat meer richting een helder, hoewel nog steeds slaperig, ritmisch en exotisch geluid. Gardot duikt in verschillende Braziliaans, Spaans en Afrikaans beïnvloede sounds, inclusief stukjes samba, tango, bossa nova en calypso. Het album werd geproduceerd door gitarist/componist Heitor Pereira. Gardot houdt zich aan haar door en door originele werkwijze en komt met herschreven en gepassioneerd gebrachte composities. Hoewel een paar befaamde muzikanten een bijdrage leveren aan Gardots muzikale karavaan, is het toch voornamelijk haar gepolijste en smachtende zangstijl die de boventoon voert in de nummers. © Matt Collar /TiVo

De Amerikaanse zangeres Melody Gardot breekt door als jazz-zangeres, maar is de laatste jaren flink aan het experimenteren met andere stijlen. Zo liet ze zich al inspireren door latin-muziek en op het album Currency of Man uit 2014 vermengt Gardot ook funk, soul en gospel door haar songs. De Amerikaanse koos ervoor ditmaal geen persoonlijke teksten te gebruiken maar te zingen over de mensen die ze in Los Angeles ontmoette en kraakt daarbij ook enkele maatschappijkritische noten. © TiVo

Onderscheidingen The Qobuz Ideal Discography
Melody Gardot's tweede album My One and Only Thrill is een schitterende verzameling van rijk georkestreerde jazzpop-ballads, die overduidelijk gemaakt zijn door een zeer getalenteerd singer-songwriter. Gardot's gevoel voor melodie is echt volwassen geworden: de opener "Baby I'm a Fool" en "Lover Undercover" voelen aan als de nieuwe klassiekers. Daarnaast is ze ook expressiever en zelfverzekerder als zangeres, met een subtiel gevoel voor humor en een zwoele lage klank die uitermate geschikt is voor het Julie London-achtige gespin, zoals in "Our Live Is Easy". My One and Only Thrill is een van de beste jazzplaten van 2009. © Charity Stafford /TiVo

In 2015, Melody Gardot stepped out of her comfort zone with Currency of Man, an album which suited her entirely but displayed a more soul’n’blues side. That is not to say that her brilliant past efforts were not in keeping with her musical personality, but it was with this record that she confirmed her love for Philadelphia, the town in which she grew up and where groove holds a different meaning.  Five years later, Sunset in the Blue holds all the hallmarks of a return to the singer’s old days which made Melody Gardot’s name. The album is a stripped-back approach to jazz and bossa-nova as imposed by the unexpected circumstances of the year 2020. When the album was beginning development, the pandemic brought a halt to everything an forced the American to rethink the project. She hence proposed that her associates, spread out all over the world, work from a distance. Melody Gardot was based in Paris, her arranger and conductor Vince Mendoza in Los Angeles and the majority of her musicians in England! Despite these constraints, the miracle record was on course for creation which would span a period of roughly five months. And so, Mendoza found himself conducting on-screen from California with musicians playing in London’s Abbey Road Studios (things weren’t made any easier considering the various time-differences). In addition to Mendoza, Melody Grant recruited a set of silky smooth sound connoisseurs who were also instrumental in the success of 2009’s My One and Only Thrill: the producer Larry Klein and sound engineer Al Schmitt.Upon listening to the end result, however, we soon forget the last-minute DIY means with which this album was made. Because throughout Sunset in the Blue, Melody Gardot maintains a fascinatingly solid and intimate direction. Here we see a return to Gardot whispering hypnotically into the ear as she sings amid intermittent piano phrases and guitars. Her voice gracefully lounges upon a bed of refined and perfectly balanced violin strings. This formula reaches an irresistible climax with the album’s title track as she turns to her much-loved Brazil with tracks like Ninguém, Ninguém and Um Beljo, before she returns to the exquisite-sounding Moon River and I Fall in Love too Easily. A beautiful album which finishes with a somewhat intrusive track, Little Something, a pop duet with Sting that doesn’t really fit in with Sunset in the Blue’s general mood. © Marc Zisman/Qobuz

In four albums, Worrisome Heart (2008), My One And Only Thrill (2009), The Absence (2012) and Currency Of Man (2015), Melody Gardot has managed to sneak in between Diana Krall and Norah Jones to also find her place in the selective club of the female singers that are “a bit jazzy but not too much”, this oneiric cast that was so popular during the 50s, and in which she soon made the singularity of her very sensual voice resonate. A voice that she ceaselessly took touring to locations all over the world, and multiple times over at that. And so, there are enough recordings in the cellar to release a live album. However, live discs are rarely a must. There is often something missing, this small impalpable thing, that only those present that night will have kept inside of them… This Live In Europe from Melody Gardot is lucky to have kept, precisely, this “small thing”… The American has probably meticulously built it (apparently, she has listened to more than 300 recordings before making her decision!) by avoiding the true-false best of. “Someday, someone told me, ‘never look back, because there’s no way you’re going back’, she says. It’s nicely said, but if you don’t look back sometimes, it’s hard to see that time is on the verge of catching up to you. We all need to quickly look back into the rear-view mirror from time to time in order to adjust our trajectory. This disc is precisely that, the rear-view mirror of a 1963 Corvette, a postcard of our touring all over Europe. We spent most of our time on the road these last few years, and we’ve taken advantage of this trip to not only get around and get some fresh air but also to try, as much as possible, to get rid of the rules and create something exciting. I’ve been dreaming for years of releasing a live album like this one.” This desire can be felt in every moment of this disc comprised of titles recorded in Paris, Vienna, Bergen, Amsterdam, Frankfurt, Barcelona, Lisbon, Zurich and London. Whether she performs her hits Baby I'm A Fool and My One And Only Thrill or covers the classic Over The Rainbow, Melody Gardot offers up a different point of view, but it’s always an open performance. To help her in her introspective trip that is constantly shifting, she is surrounded by her impeccable musicians, discreet but decisive. Drummer Charles Staab, saxophonist Irwin Hall and bass player Sami Minaie are completely in tune with her singing, like some kind of thin hand that you take and only let go of after the last note. Finally, there is this album cover which will lead to extensive press coverage… or not. © MD/Qobuz
