Product Description

Norah Jones' debut on Blue Note is a mellow acoustic pop affair with soul and country overtones, immaculately produced by the great Arif Mardin. (It's pretty much an open secret that the 22-year-old vocalist and pianist is the daughter of Ravi Shankar.) Jones is not quite a jazz singer, but she is joined by some highly regarded jazz talent: guitarists Adam Levy, Adam Rogers, Tony Scherr, Bill Frisell, and Kevin Breit; drummers Brian Blade, Dan Rieser, and Kenny Wollesen; organist Sam Yahel; accordionist Rob Burger; and violinist Jenny Scheinman. Her regular guitarist and bassist, Jesse Harris and Lee Alexander, respectively, play on every track and also serve as the chief songwriters. Both have a gift for melody, simple yet elegant progressions, and evocative lyrics. (Harris made an intriguing guest appearance on Seamus Blake's Stranger Things Have Happened.) Jones, for her part, wrote the title track and the pretty but slightly restless Nightingale. She also includes convincing readings of Hank Williams' Cold Cold Heart, John D. Loudermilk's Turn Me On, and Hoagy Carmichael's The Nearness of You. There's a touch of Rickie Lee Jones in Jones' voice, a touch of Bonnie Raitt in the arrangements; her youth and her piano skills could lead one to call her an Alicia Keys for grown-ups. While the mood of this record stagnates after a few songs, it does give a strong indication of Jones' alluring talents. [Blue Note re-released Come Away With Me in March of 2003 with a bonus disc that featured four bonus tracks and the video for Come Away With Me. The bonus tracks include a version of the Irma Thomas soul classic Ruler of My Heart performed with the Dirty Dozen Brass Band, a live take on Hank Williams' Cold Cold Heart, a mellow and countrified version of Bob Dylan's I'll Be Your Baby Tonight, and an introspective piano-and-voice version of Horace Silver's Peace.] ~ David R. Adler, Rovi

投稿日:2009/10/17 (土)

通常版LP、200g版LP(33回転)があるのに衝動買い。発売も大幅に遅れたので注文したことを忘れ、届いてびっくり。カートンボックスに入った200g45回転片面のみLP4枚組の豪華版。音は高域ののびが著しく、音像は引き締まって若返った感じ。音場空間はほぼ同等で引き締まっている。通常CDとSHM-CDの違いに似ている?33回転版が耳元でささやく感じなら、この45回転版は目の前に立っている感じ…。好みで言うと33回転かな。高価なので誰にも勧められないが、限定販売なので持っている価値があるかも。

投稿日:2007/02/24 (土)

癒しだかイヤラシだかと言う現代人特有の病的流行は『どうでもよろしい』。人に対して断言的物言いをする前に、もう少し語学力を付けて人の文章を読むのが『よろしい』。80sサイコー氏とa2氏が言及しているのは、例えや現在の一般的認識としてのジャンルイメージであり、そこにアーティストを縛りつけ決め付けている物ではない。また実際に何処でもジャンルよる分別というものは存在するし、無ければ混沌とし不便でもあるのだから。今更ながらの評価だが、このアルバム段階ではやはり原石的魅力の方が大きく、成熟度で聴かせる物ではないと感じる。

Norah Jones

Vocalist and pianist Norah Jones developed a unique blend of jazz and traditional vocal pop, with hints of bluesy country and contemporary folk, due in large part to her unique upbringing. The daughter of Ravi Shankar, Jones grew up in Texas with her mother. While she always found the music of Billie Holiday and Bill Evans both intriguing and comforting, she didn't really explore jazz until attend
