Product Overview

My One and Only Thrill

The very nature of the title suggests something more than a love affair. Something greater than romance. That thing that keeps your heart beating even when it tells you that it shouldn't. The kind of love that burns and lingers in every corner of your mind. The sentimentality; the dreamlike state. The feeling of watching time stop the moment that love arrives. A rush of delightful intensity. A cardiac abnormality of the greatest kind. To feel a sensation that is far more compelling than anyone has words to describe.

Not simply love. Not simply romance. A thrill.

With lyrical sentiments such as "It's not hard to see, what you do to me is like a page right out of Ernest Hemingway", and occasional lush orchestral arrangements by Vince Mendoza, the album is like something out of a black and white movie. Offering a cinematic exploration in lyricism, it spans the spectrum of moods one might experience in the long and sometimes difficult journey to falling in love. Mostly though, it rests on the doorstep of longing and introspection, begging you to come along and watch the saga unravel.

Artist Bio
Melody GardotIt's not hard to see why Melody Gardot's debut album Worrisome Heart (Verve) has already established her as one of music's most exciting new discoveries. The 23-year-old chanteuse's songs offer deeply compelling evocations of love, loss and heartache, while her voice offers a level of emotional authority and technical fluency that one would normally expect from a veteran performer."I've always felt like an old soul," Gardot states. "I felt like I was 40 when I was eight."Gardot's prodigious talent and singular personal history are reflected in Worrisome Heart, which the artist co-produced with Grammy-winning producer Glenn Barratt. The album's memorable original compositions range from the title track's torch-song drama to the haunted yearning of "Love Me Like a River Does." Supported by sparse arrangements she draws upon elements of jazz, blues, folk and country, with expressive vocals that are both sensitive and seductive."In my eyes, there's two kinds of music," says Gardot. "There's the kind that rushes out at you, and the kind that settles in and lets you come to it. I prefer the latter of the two. I like the idea of hearing music in the distance; you're drawn to it and you want to know what it is. To me, that's beautiful, that's the essence of listening to music: discovering it, exploring it and finding those little spaces. To have it thrown out at you almost cheapens it."Gardot's route has been an unconventional and often arduous one. Growing up in Philadelphia, she began taking music lessons at age nine, and was playing piano in local lounges by the time she was 16, although she didn't think of music as anything more than a hobby at the time. After being hit by a car and severely injured when she was 19, music became a key therapeutic element in her lengthy recovery process."Like a lot of people my age, I grew up listening to what was popular," she explains. "But after the accident, I couldn't tolerate anything above a whisper. As I couldn't listen to the music I had before, I sought out other, quieter things. My friends gave me records, and one of the first was Stan Getz's The Bossa Nova Years. I remember doing physical therapy to that, being on the treadmill, trying to learn to walk again. That kind of music became infectious for me; I would hear it and not quite understand it at first, but then I'd go back and I'd get it. I was learning as I was going, and so that type of music became more and more personal for me."
