ELODIE LAUTON QUINTETTE/Origines: Talk about kicking it old school, here we find Lauton paying tribute to a French singer that is all but forgotten today without which there would have been no Piaf, no Greco et al. Using contemporary feeling arrangements and settings, the 1930s tunes feel fresh and current. Since it's sung in French, you aren't given a minute to ponder how the original singer was pretty much the queen of pain---this stuff sounds too nice for that sobriquet. Certainly grown up cabaret/jazz vocal, you won't be able to crack the wrapper on this open unless you are sufficiently mature---self dubbing yourself an old soul doesn't count. Killer stuff.
