If you are a fan of singer Madeleine Peyroux - and I most certainly am - click here and go to Rolling Stone's web page. It will give you a chance to stream a new song "The Kind You Can't Afford" from her upcoming CD Standing On the Rooftop. The song is a collaboration with former Rolling Stones bass player Bill Wyman, who has fronted a big band for a number of years since his retirement from rock and roll.
Supposedly, he approached Madeleine at a jazz festival in France to express his fondness for her music, and ended up joined forces with the chanteuse for a week-long writing session in London. After many cups of coffee and some first-hand tales from Wyman's wild years, the jazzy and upbeat, simple yet clever song "The Kind You Can't Afford" was born.
