Best Female Pop Vocal Performance

Norah Jones took the world (and the Grammys) by storm with her debut album Come Away With Me. Now, she’s back for one of the most-anticipated follow-ups in recent memory. On Feels Like Home, Jones again teams with producer Arif Mardin, engineer Jay Newland and her close-knit touring band. She’s written several new songs, gathered a few more from her bandmates and also covered Townes Van Zandt, Tom Waits, Kathleen Brennan and Duke Ellington. Jones plays piano, Wurlitzer electric piano and pump organ and features her stripped-down core group of guitar, background vocals, bass and drums. We needn’t describe Jones’ singing. Everyone recognizes it by now. The arrangements aren’t quite as mellow as Come Away With Me, but the music still centers on country, pop and jazz colors.

“I’m glad that people liked the last album,” Jones said. “It was where I was at the time, musically. This is where I am now. That’s what a recording is for me, like a snapshot. We had so much fun making this record.”

She's Sultry

In "Feels Like Home" Norah Jones uses that sultry caberet intonation that she's known for. If only she and Josh Groban would find some common genre of music to collaborate on, it would truly be worth a listen.

The songs on this CD are involving, as Norah demonstrates why she's Grammy worthy.

However, the quality of the CD itself leaves something to be desired, detracting somewhat from the overall presentation.

Having rediscovered vinyl after a nearly 17 year hiatus, I have once again found its virtues to be considerable, and that it's clearly more involving than CD -- at least IMHO.

I do think that Norah herself is simply fabulous -- that smokey caberet voice of hers drawing her listeners in like the talented songstress that she is.

However, the next time I purchase one of her Titles, it will be on high quality vinyl.
