Product Description

Amazon.ca

It is not just the timbre of Norah Jones's voice that is mature beyond her 22 years. Her assured phrasing and precise time are more often found in older singers as well. She is instantly recognizable, blending intimations of Billie Holiday and Nina Simone without sounding like anyone but herself. Anyway you slice it, she is a singer to be reckoned with. Her readings of the Hank Williams classic, "Cold Cold Heart" and Hoagy Carmichael's "The Nearness of You" alone are worth the price of the CD. Jones's own material, while not bad, pales a bit next to masterpieces such as these. They might have fared better had she and producer Arif Mardin opted for some livelier arrangements, taking better advantage of brilliant sidemen such as Bill Frisell, Kevin Breit, and Brian Blade; or if the tunes had simply been given less laconic performances. Jones has all the tools; what will come with experience, and some careful listening to artists like J.J. Cale and Shirley Horn, is the knack of remaining low-key without being sleepy--sometimes less is not, in fact, more. --Michael Ross

4.0 out of 5 stars tres bien March 4 2006
By paula b
Format:Audio CD
this is a great chill-out album, perfect to stick on the stereo on a chilly sunday when you just want to stay cosy & loaf around at home,
the track i totally love is "lonestar" it is a beautiful wistful tune, like a clear summer's evening when there's a big bright moon in the sky & you're outside just gazing up & pondering your life............. totally gorgeous.
i am a flirting jazz fan & i like what i like, & this album has enough musical creativity & production quality to satisfy any true music fan, regardless of their chosen musical genre.

5.0 out of 5 stars SACD multi-channel mix is flawed Feb. 24 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I agree with the previous review stating that the SACD mix is flawed. Even adding a +6dB boost to the subwoofer channel isn't good enough, so I have to resort to listening to the regular stereo mix instead. :(
Still, I give it 5 stars because it is Norah... but I will be complaining to Blue Note as well, because this is simply an amateurish error that makes me wonder if their engineers tested the mix properly. None of my other SACDs have this problem.

5.0 out of 5 stars Such a great cd! Sept. 10 2006
Format:Audio CD
Its not-quite-jazz, not-quite-blues but I loved it. Nora Jones is a rare and gifted talent that only comes along once in while. Her voice is so sultry and sophisticated that I thought I was listening to a much older artist. Every song on her album invites you into the world of her soulful music for a listening experience that made me play the songs over and over. Excellent CD. You'll get lost in the music.

3.0 out of 5 stars young, talented, but, a way to go... Feb. 5 2003
By Cam
Format:Audio CD
I'm enjoying this CD very much and think it worth the purchase--if you love, like I do, jazz vocalists. The voice, her handling of the materials, the tunes--it's an unusual, pretty package to listen to. That being said, the CD suffers from problems with pacing, energy, and intensity. Jone's moody, sensual delivery can and does slide into sleepiness, as others have noted. Her delivery needs work, the selection of the material could have been made more upbeat, and her own compositions trimmed or perhaps removed altogether--they seem a bit premature. BUT this singer is a mere baby; give her time, there's much talent and potential here!

5.0 out of 5 stars The incredible Ms. Jones June 3 2004
Format:Audio CD
Normally I tend to shy away from things too popular such as winners of Grammy awards. So many successful musicians these days tend to have more style than substance (Britany, Jessica etc) so I wasn't going to be sucked into buying into Nora simply because of her boatload of music awards.
But due to her success, her music became inescapable and could be heard even at places like supermarkets. I became intrigued and finally bought her CD and it now has a permanent place in my 5 disc CD player.
Nora has the voice and talent to became a worthy heir of the female jazz greats (Holiday, Fitzgerald, Simone, Horn etc) and amply establishes her credentials with this CD. She could make a living mining the jazz songbooks of the past and putting her own interpretation of those works as she did with Carmichael's song on this album. However, she doesn't seem interested in restricting herself strictly to Jazz despite her training and talent in this field.
This is why I was so disappointed with her next album Feels Like Home...too much of her Texas upbringing shows up in this work much to the credit of country music but at a great loss to jazz. Her sultry, smoky voice is perfect for those of us who thrill to the imperfect, vulnerable voice of Billie Holiday and we want her talent focused on producing masterpieces of female vocal jazz rather than squandering her talent on country. Faith Hill and Shania Twain can fill the void in this area. Imagine how wasteful of talent it would be if Mozart were alive today and spending his time writing lyrics for rock bands rather than producing one classical masterpiece after another in his own day.

4.0 out of 5 stars Finally SOMETHING Fresh May 22 2004
Format:Audio CD
...even if it's nothing TOO original....
As a progrock and classical music nut, I am PLEASED to report that atleast SOMETHING has come along to relieve our numb ears of 10 years of disillusionment in the music industry. T'was a very clever trick to just speak a bit quieter than everyone else in order to get herself heard.
Most likely the immense success of this album (reaching #1!) has been something of an unpredicted fluke from left field, but... THANK GOD!!!! I absolutely give maximum respect to those with incredible musical sense that play the game and straddle the fine line between art and commercialism, in order to get their music out to the masses. This album is pure mellow soul with jazz lacings and a rock subconsciusness. Not a commercial sellout by any means, but a "crossover" (stupid term) success nonetheless. Bottom line, this is the best new thing since Dream Theater. Musically worlds apart, of course, but both made sure to only do what they were musically motivated to do, not compromising to the record company... and both happened to get many people to tune in. All songs on this album are similar in atmosphere, yet within the atmosphere, there is subtle diversity that flows from track to track and concludes as it is meant to be, with a cover of a standard. This girl has my support.
If like many people, you want to just take a breath and a time out from what the music industry keeps shoving down your throats and ears, buy this and come away with Norah. Amen.

The actual album I like, I have this on CD, there are far too many artefacts in the record surface to make this record remotely playable. Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars A sure hit!
Norah Jones is such a gifted vocalist & this genre of music had been seldom explored to the extent of this CD's eventual popularity which is what made it so refreshing to hear. Read more
