Madeleine sings like she was born in a different era!
Madeleine Peyroux is an American jazz singer, songwriter and guitarist.
Often compared to Billie Holiday for her vocal similarities, Peyroux’s second solo album only had one original tune on it, Don’t Wait Too Long.
Released in 2004, the album Careless Love sounds as if it was written eighty years earlier.
Don’t Wait Too Long – Chords & Guitar Lessons
Using traditional jazz chord progressions with some interesting extensions, Madeleine Peyroux launched herself as a contemporary answer to Billie Holiday.
The bridge section uses a long cycle of 4th progression, further adding to the 1940s Jazz/Blues vibe.
Don’t Wait Too Long – Lyrics
You can cry a million tears,
you can wait a million years.
If you think that time will change your ways,
don’t wait too long.
