REVIEW: Madeleine Peyroux @ the Shedd (Eugene, OR – - 3/25/09)

Great show last night… Madeleine Peyroux and her jazzy quartet played a smooth hour and half set at the Shedd.  I’m really coming to love the early start time, no opener, and home at a reasonable time shows at the Shedd.  No pictures or (accurate) set list from me for this show… I was in a hurry and drove straight in from work in Portland to make it time for the show.

Madeleine had a backing quartet made up of a piano/keyboard/organ/melodica player, an electric/upright bassist, a mandolin/guitarist, and a drummer/cardboard box player.  They were a really well put together band…

Songs I remember them playing:
Dance Me to the End of Love, Bare Bones, You’re Gonna Make Me Lonesome When You Go, La Javanaise, Love and Treachery, Our Lady of Pigalle, I Must Be Saved
.  They came back for an encore dedicated to Barack Obama (There’s Something Grand).

Great, soothing show.  Wonderful, lush, Billie Holiday-esque vocals, great accompaniment.  If she comes through your town, check her out!  Oh, she also has a new CD out, Bare Bones:
