WEEKLY GIVEAWAY
Giveaway Prize
This week 2 lucky WUMB Members will win a copy of the CD "The Blue Room" by Madeleine Peyroux AND a WUMB Signature Mug!

The winners will be announced on the morning of Friday July 10.
Giveaway Info

The Blue Room is Madeleine Peyroux's second Decca recording that re-analyzed the impactful influence of Ray Charles' 1962 album, known as "Modern Sounds in Country and Western Music." The Blue Room was not meant to be a recreation of Ray Charles' work, but the album would feature remakes of several of the original songs and included other compositions from composers whose work benefitted from the genre that Ray Charles made known. Peyroux worked the music, giving it a second generation appeal.

This album was an experiment that ultimately worked out rather nicely. Peyroux's approach would allow a progression that would utilize Ray Charles' music as a directory to great results. This polish is especially noticeable in tracks like "Bird on a Wire" and "Gentle on My Mind." Peyroux conservatively re-vitalized Ray Charles' performances to create some of the most progressive mainstream music ever conceived.
