With her 2006 debut album Worrisome Heart, singer-songwriter, pianist, and guitarist Melody Gardot displayed an instinctive gift for transforming the traditions of jazz and blues with her personal kiss of life. But even her most ardent admirers will be amazed at the creative leap forward she has taken with the follow-up, My One and Only Thrill. Mixing Latin rhythms, finger-snapping blues, and deep, smoldering torch songs, it's an album that seems to have been shaped from several lifetimes of love, loss, and longing. Though she's still only in her early twenties, the rapturous reception accorded to Worrisome Heart by fans and critics meant that Gardot suddenly found her life moving at triple speed as demand for her talent blossomed across several continents. Part of the 2010 International VSA Festival.
