Standing on the rooftop by Madeleine Peyroux( Recording )

3 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 286 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Acclaimed vocalist Madeleine Peyroux is back with a new captivating sound. Standin' On The Rooftop signals a major sonic shift for Peyroux, as she explores American roots music with a delicate touch and haunting resonance. The new album, out on Emarcy/Decca and helmed by noted producer Craig Street (Norah Jones, k.d. Lang, Cassandra Wilson), features Marc Ribot on guitar/banjo along with Me'shell Ndegeocello on bass and signals a new approach for Peyroux as she carries her jazz sensibilities into rootsier territory. Standin' On The Rooftop includes a gorgeously melancholic folk rendition of The Beatles' "Martha, My Dear," and the eerie, intimate new original song "The Things I've Seen Today," which Peyroux co-wrote with vocalist/violinist Jenny Scheinman. In addition to contributions from Ribot and Ndegeocello, the tracks feature drummer Charely Drayton (Neil Young, Johnny Cash) and guitarist Chris Bruce (Seal, John Legend). Standin' On The Rooftop, her fifth solo album, encompasses a wide spectrum from the lulling, gentle "Lay Your Sleeping Head, My Love" (adapted from the W.H. Auden poem of the same name) and the stunning, spare "Super Hero" to the clever, whimsical "Don't Pick a Fight With a Poet."

While staying at the Glen Deven Ranch, Frisell was captivated by the beauty and grandeur of the Big Sur, California coastline that inspired him to write this transcendent new music.--Midwest Tape
All we are saying-- by Bill Frisell( Recording )

9 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 209 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Eclectic, uncategorizable guitarist Bill Frisell takes his John Lennon seriously on "All We Are Saying," on which he makes no apologies for his love of Lennon and the Beatles. This is not a collection of wry covers. This is a record by a man who can unearth all sorts of nuggets in a familiar tune's nooks and crannies. Frisell's band, too, is made up of musicians who love to hang out in the place where rock, pop, folk, blues, and jazz intersect: violinist Jenny Scheinman, bassist Tony Scherr, drummer Kenny Wollesen, and second guitarist Greg Leisz. So what do we have here? Sixteen radio-length tracks that include a gorgeous, ethereal version of "Across the Universe" whose somber violin and country twang could bring on tears; a honky-tonk take of "Revolution" that makes you want to square-dance; a sleepy, dreamy redo of "Imagine" in which Frisell takes considerable care to pick just the right notes not only when he plays the melody but when he improvises; a folk cover of "Julia" that contains not an ounce of cynicism; and an almost ambient sketch of "Give Peace a Chance" that dares the listener to find the original melody buried deep within."--September 13, 2011, review by Steve Greenlee, Boston Globe Staff
