Madeleine Peyroux

I've never experiencd a performer less comfortable performing. she begins singing in this small voice on a huge stage. the voice goes everywhere   puzzling my ear. she seems full of fear.

it gets better with each number -- altho she doesn't smile till at least 5 in. shortly before the quick set is over she soars. yes finally on one exquisite number it's perfect & glorious. then she hesitates   as if she's waking from a dream   not knowing where she is or why she's there. it's quite unnerving.

I'd love to see her, I think she's an amazing talent.
