Norah Jones isn’t your typical jazz kind of chanteuse. Without the slightest efforts, she’s captured listeners way outside jazz. How incredible is that, really?
If you haven’t picked yourself up a Norah Jones disc, then you really don’t know what you’re missing. Trust me, you don’t have to be a big fan of music like hers to enjoy what she has to offer. Thousands of critics and positive reviews can’t be wrong. This is what VH1 had to say of Norah’s abilites. “Sensual, carefree, forlorn and yet cool, it simply wafts down from the speakers and settles on the couch next to you, like some friend who showed up out of nowhere. She’s that good.”
With that said, it should not come as a surprise to anyone at all that her album ‘Come Away With Me’ is riding high on the official UK album charts. It’s still in the Top 10 regions.
In response to the question “Some journalists have said that the disc’s singularity comes from the fact that it has the audacity to be low key in a splashy pop era. What are your views?”, Norah replied “It’s kind of like sensory overload. I can’t sing like that. Some girls can sing that well. A lot of pop people out there are way cool, but they overdo it.”
So with incredible vocals of hers, what kind of music does Norah listen to and does she secretly own a Britney Spears album, perhaps?
To this, the Miss-India beautiful Miss Jones replied “Well, I’m a fan of Aretha Franklin, Stevie Wonder. As for the Britney LP, no I don’t own that kind of stuff. But I do like to watch it on TV if it comes on. It’s definitely stimulating, don’t you think? Britney’s dance moves are very interesting.”
