Norah Jones emerged with her soft, sexy and languid voice on the world stage 10 years ago. Right there and then “Come Away With Me”, described by herself as a ‘moody little record’, was all over the place introducing a new talent, who grew into a global phenomenon accompanied by her stunning natural beauty, sweeping the 2003 Grammy Awards. Everything old was new again – like solid piano licks a la Nina Simone or Ray Charles.
Norah, the daughter of Indian sitar player Ravi Shankar and American concert producer Sue Jones, was blending mellow, acoustic pop with soul and jazz with the help of veteran producer Arif Mardin. The album “Come Away With Me” has sold 25 million copies worldwide.
Since then, Norah Jones has released four more critically acclaimed and commercially successful solo albums – “Feels Like Home” (2004), “Not Too Late” (2007),“The Fall” (2009) and “Little Broken Hearts” (2012) – as well as two albums with her country collective The Little Willies. “Little Broken Hearts”, her fifth studio album, explores the concept of heartbreak with guitar driven and craggy sounds under the supervision of producer Brian “Danger Mouse” Burton.
