On Currency of Man, Gardot takes on a rootsier sound, embracing West Coast soul, funk, gospel, and pop from the early '70s as the backdrop for these songs. It is not only different musically, but lyrically. This is a less "personal" record; its songs were deeply influenced by the people she encountered in . many of them street denizens. She tells their stories and reflects on themes of social justice.

Currency of Man marks a substantial leap forward indeed, as we see Gardot take her gift for songwriting in a completely different direction to her last record, the critically acclaimed release The Absence. As Melody explains: "Every album is a journey and this disc in some ways is a leap into the unknown. After spending time in LA, the songs all became about the people I'd meet: people who were experiencing life on the fring. But her extraordinary voice, and underlying attitude, which exudes both strength and grace, is unmistakably Melody Gardot.

Currency Of Man finds her in particularly arresting form, embracing the harder, funkier side of her sound to intoxicating effect. While much of the album finds Gardot tackling social issues with her intelligence and insight, she takes time to pour scorn on unfaithful lovers during the infectious groove of "Same to You", and pays tribute to a jazz legend with the haunting instrumental "March For Mingus". This release marks a significant leap forward for one of America’s most exciting young talents. Currency of Man (The Artist's Cut) Melody Gardot. A socially conscious and musically diverse songwriter, Melody Gardot's contemporary take on jazz and blues has earned her plaudits aplenty. Currency Of Man finds her in particularly arresting form, embracing the harder, funkier side of her sound to intoxicating effect.

The lullaby-like sound of singer/songwriter Melody Gardot's mellow new single "Morning Sun" makes a lot of sense when you find out her inspiration for the writing the track: the birth of her guitarist's first son. "We called it, amongst ourselves, 'Ezra's Song,' (in honor of the baby) as the song was finished at the same moment we received the news his son had arrived into the world, Gardot tells Billboard. The soulful, inspirational song comes courtesy of Gardot's upcoming record Currency of Man, an album that she says is "less personal, and more observatory. Analog recording and production courtesy of Joni Mitchell and Madeleine Peyroux collaborator Larry Klein give it a classic, timeless feel, showcasing the singer's sultry, approachable voice.

As smooth singers go, Philadelphia’s Melody Gardot is more versatile than most. On her last album she explored world music; on Currency of Man, she’s gone conscious. It’s not quite Erykah Badu, but when you’re a Grammy-winning easy-listening artist, it’s an admirable direction. There are songs inspired by the American civil rights movement (Preacherman, with its twangy, Dusty Springfield vibe), and others that speak out about war, famine and poverty.
