My One and Only Thrill Album Tracklist

My One and Only Thrill is the second studio album by American jazz singer-songwriter Melody Gardot, released in the United States on April 28, 2009 by Verve Records. Two singles were released from the album: "Who Will Comfort Me" and "Baby I'm a Fool". All tracks are original, except "Over the Rainbow" (originally sung by Judy Garland in 1939's The Wizard of Oz), which is included as a tribute to her grandmother. It features string arrangements by Vince Mendoza, who, along with producer Larry Klein, is known for his works with Joni Mitchell. Cover artwork for the album was photographed by Nicholas LaClair and makeup for Gardot by Victoria Stiles. The album received three Grammy Award nominations: Instrumental Arrangement Accompanying Vocalist(s) for the title track (Mendoza), Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical (Helik Hadar and Al Schmitt) and Producer of the Year, Non-Classical (Klein). The album has sold over 500,000 copies to date.

In November 2009 a deluxe addition was released, a digi-pack including an orchestral version of "If the Stars Were Mine" and an additional EP with five tracks recorded live at a radio concert in Paris, as well as an extended booklet. A second deluxe addition, the "Starwatch edition" was released in November 2010. This version includes three bonus "Chill Out Mix" tracks and instead of the live EP it includes the "Bye Bye Blackbird" EP, four tracks recorded with British jazz guitarist David Preston.
