7 Songs, 28 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Breaking the album cycle with a batch of seven songs recorded over a year, Norah Jones makes up for the relative brevity with variety, collaborating with Jeff Tweedy, Thomas Bartlett (Doveman), and others on the multifaceted Begin Again. While bluesy piano and soulful singing remain the core of everything Jones does, the opening ballad “My Heart is Full” stands in stark contrast to the swagger of “Begin Again,” the bare-bones folk of “A Song with No Name,” and the spacey jazz flourishes of “Just a Little Bit.” Though not quite the length of a typical album, this set hangs together, thanks to each song sharing the assured intimacy of a lullaby.

Oh Norah

People call this boring. I call it amazing. She’s always made the most relaxing, spiritual music ever..

Norah does it again

Even though this is simply a collection of songs, the songs live up to what I have come to expect from Norah: quality with passion driving them.

I have always loved, admired and been a devoted fan and listener to the poetic audible touch of Norah Jones’ music. Her original lyrics, covered renditions , collaborations show how her career, vocal abilities and interests continue to mature into the illustrious beauty that she has endlessly shared since the debut of her multi faceted career span.
