I bought one of her CD's a couple years ago on a trip to Florida. I listened to it each morning on my way to watch the sun rise over the ocean. To this day, when I listen to that cd, I can smell the ocean and it makes me smile.
Norah and the darkroom go hand in hand for me as well. Nicole, while you're out buying a new Nora CD I highly recomend the less well known but no less incredible cd New York City - The Peter Malick Group featuring Nora Jones. It's a little more bluesy than her solo albums. And whoever mentioned that Nora should work with Willie Nelson - she has! Also great stuff. Shawn
I concur with Jeremy's comments. She is a very genuine person and her story is wonderful. She was working with my brother in New York at a restaurant when she hit the big time. Took three of the staff with her on tour. I am very fortunate to have a copy of her demo session (that became the first album) as a result of that relationship. I play that CD eight hours straight while doing laps between here and California, singing (trying to sing) the whole way. Never tire of it. Her music is sincere, genuine, effortless, wonderful.
