I've been waiting since last fall to talk with the jazz star. Her sophomore CD, "My One and Only Thrill" comes out at the end of the month. The New York Times did a feature on her this Sunday. Universal Music Group, her recording label, says that they are putting their resources behind Gardot and U2 this year. That's pretty good company for a 25-year-old performer who never planned on being in the spotlight, much less being the new "it" girl of jazz.
When we talked on the phone last week, Gardot was taking a much-needed break on the island of Maui. I found her as delightful and alluring as her music.
Check out my interview with her in an upcoming edition of the News-Telegram.

And here's the song that explains what it was like to survive a horrific accident that left her sensitive to light and sound ... and permanently attached to a walking cane.
