The Absence is the third record from Grammy-nominated Melody Gardot. Produced by Heitor Pereira, renowned for his work as a film composer ("Despicable Me," "It's Complicated," "From Prada to Nada") and world-class session guitarist (Sting, Seal, Caetano Veloso), the Brazilian-born, US-based artist shared Melody's enthusiasm for driving off the beaten path of Western pop, jazz, blues and soul. And he was as adventurous as Melody when it came to inventive sonic ideas. From the deserts of Morocco to the streets of Lisboa, from the tango bars of Buenos Aires to the beaches of Brazil, The Absence captures the essence of each of these exotic locales, while at the same time remaining quintessentially Melody Gardot.

Dirty but cleaned up OK

The dirtiest new record I've ever received when first pulled out of the sleeve so I prepared myself for disappointment. Fortunately I'd recently purchased a new cleaning device (just one of the plastic bath types that you spin the record in) so it was into the cleaner with this and the other Melody Gardot record I got on the same order that was similarly dirty. Both came out looking good and when played sounded great, this one pretty much silent and the other just a few crackles. Much relieved I settled down to enjoy the music. I really like it, beautiful voice, nice band and interesting songs.

Once again Melody shows the versatility and talent. The spanish influence and jazz fused is a delight. Quality of the vinyl is wonderful.
