Chasing Pirates

So if you think you know the kind of music that Norah Jones plays, think again. I just got a chance to check out a track from her upcoming album The Fall, and all I can say is wow. Without doubt, I'd describe it as a new direction for her. Upon first listen, I found it hard to believe that it was Norah that I was listening to at all. I really like the driving instrumentation behind her voice that makes the song move in a way I wouldn't normally associate with her. If the rest of the album is like this, it's certainly a re-imaging of her style. Not to say that I didn't enjoy her style in the first place, but this new Norah has got me hooked again.

Visit her website, her label Blue Note Records, and become her friend on MySpace.

Norah Jones has the kind of talent that will give her (if she wants) a thirty or forty year career in the music industry. Long after most of the current artists have been forgotten, Norah Jones will still be making music.
