With her intoxicating, sultry voice, Eilen Jewell is often compared to Madeleine Peyroux, and there is some sonic similarity there. But Jewell’s arrangements also channel Big Maybelle— full of soul and witchcraft. At least half of the original tunes on this beautiful, provocative record would make a great sax-laden soundtrack to a noir-ish nightclub scene in a film. Others are old-school country ballads with pedal steel and fiddle taking over. This is a real throwback gem.
