Madeleine Peyroux's fourth album isn't the normal mix of standards (contemporary or traditional) with a few songs of her own composing; each of the 11 tracks is a new song written by Peyroux, usually in tandem with producer Larry Klein or a guest. Still, she appears in her usual relaxed setting, with a small group perfectly poised to translate her languorous vocals into perfect accompaniment - organist Larry Goldings, pianist Jim Beard, drummer Vinnie Colaiuta, plus producer Klein on bass, Dean Parks on guitar, and Carla Kihlstedt on violin. Still, Bare Bones is a remarkable work from one of the best artists in vocal jazz.

Bare Bones, is vocalist Madeleine Peyroux's third in the last four years and most personal, since she was involved in the writing of all 11 tracks and providing lyrics that are highly introspective. Peyroux also accompanies herself on acoustic guitar throughout. This is a storytelling album, a mission at which Peyroux excels. Whatever tale she is telling, she does it with the 'little girl' quality of her vocal, which lends itself most ably to the honest unfolding of the album's stories. An additional and helpful bonus is the insert containing all of the song lyrics.

Bare Bones" is Madeleine Peyroux's first attempt at recording "modern" music, which for her means a non-Billie Holliday sounding, non-traditional jazz sound where she has written or co-written all 11 songs on the record. Her voice still sounds like Holliday's, but the songs on this record, while similar to previous Ms. Peyroux's recordings about love, loss, and modern living sounds like early 21st century life as opposed to early to mid 20th century life. She took the time to develop her style as a buster on the streets of Paris. This effort shows in her music. This album also displays her talents as a songwriter & not just as an interpreter of someone else's work. This album is an excellent introduction to her music. Madeleine is like a fine wine.
