I have been a fan of Norah Jones for years. Her voice is soo cool mixed with her bluesy Jazz band. I will download her new album and get back to you guys with my review.

The most rhythmically charged song on the album"Flipside" also carries a powerful socio-political charge. Norah sets a driving bass line with her left hand before Blade’s drums and Chris Thomas’ bass kick in.

Here she returns to her earlier jazz roots with the help of some serious session heavyweights, including drummer Brian Blade, organist Lonnie Smith, and saxophonist Wayne Shorter. The dozen tracks here showcase her gorgeous, mellifluous voice and naturally instinctive way with a keening melody while the playing and production is demonstration quality.

I really enjoyed the new album. usually it takes a few listens to really appreciate it in full. Going to have it on repeat for the next few days.

Day Breaks is the forthcoming album from Norah Jones, her first since 2012’s Little Broken Hearts. Over the course of 12 tracks, some of which are covers of Neil Young and Duke Ellington, the singer-songwriter revisits her piano and jazz beginnings.

Burton is one of the world’s biggest producers, and it’s no surprise that his diverse, singular set of sounds shapes Jones’ style in a new way. That smoky, lithe, gorgeous voice is still the same, the focal point that it deserves to be.

Fifteen years ago, when Ms. Jones signed to Blue Note, a storied jazz label, she was obviously an outlier: an unproven young singer-songwriter blending acoustic jazz with rustic country and folksy soft rock.

The album’s first single, “Carry On,” was released today with an accompanying video (above), where Jones is found singing at the piano, while nostalgic shots of home life come into frame: An older couple, cooking dinner, share a tender moment while Jones serenades them.

There's something so delicate and uncomplicated about Jones' voice and the way the piano notes gently travel alongside her every word. It's about holding your beloved close, and as the song comes to an end, a kiss.

The album features jazz luminaries including her Blue Note label mates saxophonist Wayne Shorter, organist Dr. Lonnie Smith, and drummer Brian Blade on a 12-song set that presents 9 new originals alongside covers of songs by Horace Silver, Duke Ellington and Neil Young.
