Must-See Music Pick! From the Music Editors: View Music Picks 
Touted as the 21st century's Billie Holiday, the French-American Peyroux has built a healthy career reinterpreting other people's tunes, from Holiday to contemporaries like Elliott Smith, earning charm for her sultry, innately timed voice. She knows how to play a guitar, too, and has penned some critically praised originals along the way, with Time magazine citing 1996's blues ditty "Hey Sweet Man" as "the most exciting, involving vocal performance" of that year. Recent effort Bare Bones (2009) is a further extension of that blues heart trapped in a jazz light, with a couple handfuls of her own tunes thrown in for good measure. (Gavin Paul)
