Mélanie is an exceptional storyteller with a voice that radiates with clarity – both powerful and sensitive – and above all imbued with an incredible palette of nuances, through which the delicate tenderness of her mezzo-soprano shines. Her fourth album, Le Chant des Possibles, offers up stunning proof of this: a true gem of French vocal jazz, standing out from its counterparts as she honours our language, which she instinctively handles with great delight. Her phrasing and luminous diction support this singularity, particularly as her ethereal vocalises carry the French poetry of the great authors of yesterday and today in a stunningly natural adaptation. Subtle and refined, of a modernity imbued with great freshness, her stage version as a quintet presents nothing but good taste and pure joy. An absolute favourite that simply must be discovered!
