In lieu of attending high school classes in Paris, Madeleine Peyroux fled to the streets, singing with jazz buskers in the Latin Quarter. "I always said, 'I'm going to get a job in a couple of years and go back to reality.' That never happened. I tried, and it was horrible. I couldn't do a job anywhere else," recalls the veteran singer, best known for torchy folk and jazz covers like Leonard Cohen's "Dance Me to the End of Love" and Bessie Smith's "Lovesick Blues." "But I happened to meet the best street musicians in Paris."
