Singer/songwriter Melody Gardot's first full-length concert album, 2018's Live in Europe, is a gorgeously produced collection showcasing her emotive vocals in an organic, deeply atmospheric concert framework. Recorded at a series of shows between 2012 and 2016, the album finds the singer backed by her adept touring ensemble; a dynamic band replete with guitars, horns, drums, and percussion. Gardot curated the album herself, and included such longtime fan favorites as "Baby I'm a Fool," "Les Etoiles, "My One and Only Thrill," "Who Will Comfort Me," and more. Also spotlighted is her buoyant rendition of the classic standard "Over the Rainbow." These are warm, acoustic and electric performances that make the most of Gardot's yearning, poetic style.
