You may recognize the song from the Dockers commercial, but this performance is worth checking out whether your khakis are on or off. Peyroux has definite crossover appeal, and "Don't Wait Too Long" presents an attractive blending of jazz and pop that will captivate even listeners who don't know Lady Day from Ladyfingers. Aging baby-boomers who are nostalgic for the long-lost days when Top 40 divas such as Phoebe Snow and Rickie Lee Jones artfully mixed genres into fresh, new hybrids should make the acquaintance of this charming stylist.
