Now's the Time: Madeleine Peyroux
While she's most often compared to Billie Holiday, I hear a lot of Bob Dylan in Madeleine Peyroux's approach. As demonstrated in this performance, she clearly shares Dylan's affection for Gary Davis, John Hurt and Lonnie Johnson. It's no surprise that her March 20 appearance at The Folly Theater is presented by Bill Shapiro's Cypress Avenue.
I plan to motor west. Plastic Sax will return in about a week.
