Add to Calendar 2013-03-22 2013-03-22 35 Madeleine Peyroux at Who/What/When: Jazz at Lincoln Center continues its 25th anniversary season with French-American vocalist Madeleine Peyroux in the Allen Room on March 22nd & 23rd.

In these concerts, Peyroux will apply her recognizable-in-one-note instrument—and her guitar—to repertoire drawn from her last four CDs, comprising both original songs and reimagined classics from such artists as Robert Johnson, Bessie Smith, Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen, and Joni Mitchell.

“She was capable of telling the truth,” says Madeleine Peyroux of her attraction to Billie Holiday, to whom her soulful, thick-as-molasses contralto and deliberate, conversational phrasing has been compared. “Someone gave me early Columbia recordings with Billie Holiday and instructed me to learn the songs.” Peyroux grasped not just the melody chances, choice of tone and phrasing but the power of the iconic artist’s presence - “It was by learning Billie’s mannerisms that I was learning to listen to my own.”
