Songbook 7: Madeleine Peyroux

Multi-million album seller Madeleine Peyroux has been dubbed the 21st century Billie Holiday, and has worked with some of the greats in the music industry, co-writing songs with Bill Wyman of the Rolling Stones and Steely Dan's Walter Becker. Art of Time has invited Madeleine to hand pick songs by her favourite artists expressly for this concert, and perform them in arrangements by Canada's top composers exclusively for Art of Time. The band accompanying Madeleine is composed of classical and jazz heavyweights, including Andrew Burashko, Benjamin Bowman, Phil Dwyer, Rachel Mercer, Rob Piltch and Joseph Phillips.
