Following 2 well-received recordings, French jazz vocalist Melanie Dahan has just recorded a new one.

She has a history of working with excellent musicians (pianist Giovanni Mirabassi) and this album continues this fine tradition.

The distinctive, continually surprising sound of this new album is the result of an especially satisfying collaboration with 5 pianists, a veritable who's who of the best in France. A smartly conceived concept recording made up of 10 jazz standards where each pianist pays tribute to the American songbook in his fresh and inventive own way. Each one of their unique and contemporary arrangements acts to highlight Dahan's vocal qualities and to make her voice an instrument. Melanie's strengths - expressive delicacy at low volumes, flexible phrasing - are all here. Above all, there's her voice - light but expressive, engaging and evocative, whether she's singing in English (here), French (in her first album) or Portuguese (in her second album).
