Norah Jones - Come Away With Me
Why This CD Matters:
Norah Jones is, by far, one of the most unassuming geniuses you'll ever meet. On top of that? She's absolutely stunning. Last summer, while she was touring here in Kansas City, I got a chance to both hear her music and meet the lady herself. What I found was that the woman and her music are very much alike. Subtle, quiet and far better on the ears than some of the sugary sweet love songs produced by artists such as Celine Dion. Jones gives you romance with intelligence, and love songs with spirit but she does not compromise on the presentation of the music. With her piano, and a throaty voice that could be likened to a warm summer night, you are transformed when you listen to this CD. She brings you into a softly lit world where a slow dance and a smile mean more than most things ever could.
This CD matters because it is genius. It is art. And it is one woman who has set a new, and incredibly gentle standard in an era of rap and rock. This is an elegant, classy woman who I encourage every *JEN* girl to get to know better. The songs are rich with mood and life thanks to skillful lyrics and Norah's wistful sort of voice which sends out the feelings every one of us have felt sometime in our lives. My favorite song though is the title track, which is a gorgeous love song that hints at nothing but someone following into the darkness so they might be written a song. No sex, no suggestion of anything but simple and beautiful love. Amazing how easy she makes it, isn't it?
