NORAH JONES' - NEW YORK CITY
on 18 September 2003
On first listening, it hits you right away that this album is going to appeal to Blues and R.& B. devotees. All tracks are of that variety and very well performed by Norah. In my opinion, it does not have the all-round appeal of "Come Away With Me", but as I am a big Blues fan, this will do for me.
I love New York City but don't understand the need to include it twice on what is already a low track album. Nonetheless, Norah gives a good rendition of both versions.
I would imagine the aim on this album is to establish Norah's undoubted Blues credentials. These was not so obviously present on "Come Away With Me" which I think is fabulous. Her aim on this CD is to draw on the big Blues and R. & B. audience that is out there all over the world.
Well-worth adding to any serious devotee's Blues/R & B collection
