Singer-songwriter Keren Ann releases 101, her fourth album on Blue Note Records and her sixth solo album overall. 101 is an entirely self-produced and self-penned set of 10 new songs that presents a surprising yet entirely natural evolution of Keren Ann's sound, as can be heard on the album's buoyant opening track and lead single "My Name Is Trouble."

Each song is a window into a world, like the windows of the apartment building opposite James Stewart's in Rear Window. Each picture, lit by a different light, is a painting come to life, a painting in sound and words, telling a story.

There is also a new energy, a broader range, a sense of new ground broken. The voice reaches out more, but Keren Ann retains her enigmatic quality, her intimate bond with the listener, and the vignettes still mystify as much as they illuminate. Nothing is sacrificed. Ultimately 101 embodies what Keren Ann's music is all about: the songs, the voice, the sound. From the Label

101 is a beautiful blend of brilliant songwriting/singing/storytelling. Le film noir of Keren Ann's life? Peut-etre. It's worth listening to over and over again. My favourite track? That changes day to day because they're all so good, but right now it's "Blood on my Hands". A constant fav is the title track, 101, a hauntingly beautiful countdown that gives me chills every time I hear it. If you're not a fan already, you will be after listening to this CD.
