Norah Jones – Come away with me (sheet music) Piano and voice.
Norah Jones. Sometimes we hear a singer for the first time, and despite this we have the impression of having heard him all his life. Her way of interpreting her songs, both intimate and warm, draws us in and allows us to get an idea of her personality just by listening to them. This is the case of the young singer Norah Jones. On her first album with Blue Note, Come Away With Me, she impresses us with a musicality and depth of feeling that would turn heads anywhere at any time.
The singer’s sensitivity is even more remarkable, since she is only 22 years old. Brooklyn-born Norah Jones has been singing and playing piano since her teens; for her gifts as a composer and arranger she renders account with her album Come Away With Me. Ella Norah not only wrote the album’s stunning title track ‘Come Away With Me’, but she is also the author of ‘Nightingale’ and co-writer of ‘The Long Day is Over’.
Hank Williams’ song ‘Cold, Cold Heart’ Norah Jones gives a sophisticated Western feel with a touch of swing, and completely transforms John D. Loudermilk’s bluesy ballad ‘Turn Me On’; in the latter case, she thanks Nina Simone, thanks to whose recording Norah learned this song. Come Away With Me combines elements of jazz, soul, country music and folk-pop; together they produce a warm and spontaneous mix that blurs musical boundaries.
Without a doubt, this album will excite fans of Sade, Charlie Rich and Nick Drake alike. On this album, Norah Jones, who has a first-class team, sings and plays the piano and a Wurlitzer electric piano. In her group are double bass Lee Alexander, drummer Dan Rieser, and guitars Jesse Harris and Adam Levy, all New York musicians. They are some musicians Norah has been playing live with since the fall of 2000.
His special guests on Come Away With Me include, among others, Bill Frisell (guitar), Kevin Breit (guitar), Brian Blade (drums), Jenny Scheinman (violin), Rob Burger (accordion), Sam Yahel (Hammond B-organ). 3) and Kenny Wollesen (drums). Proper and measured album production is handled by Arif Mardin, a veteran of classic productions and arrangements by the likes of Aretha Franklin, Dusty Springfield, Laura Nyro, Roberta Flack and Willie Nelson, to name just a few.
Norah and sound engineer Jay Newland produced ‘Don’t Know Why’ and ‘Turn Me On’, with additional production touches from Arif. Craig Street is the original producer on three songs (‘Seven Years’, ‘Feelin’ The Same Way’ and ‘The Long Day Is Over’), with additional touch-ups by Jay and Norah.
Two years after the release of her debut album ‘Come Away with Me’, Norah Jones returns with a terrific collection of new songs. On this album, ‘Feels Like Home’, the singer-pianist-composer once again teams up with producer Arif Mardin, sound engineer Jay Newland and her regular live band. She offers us a set of songs composed by her, the members of her group and by the singer and composer Richard Julian.
Norah Jones also covers several songs, including Townes Van Zandt’s ‘Be Here To Love Me’ and Duke Ellington’s ‘Melancholia’, a song for which she wrote the lyrics and retitled ‘Don’t Miss You’. At All’.
‘Not too late’, released in 2006, is the third studio album by Norah Jones. The New York singer, with 45 million copies sold of her first two albums, hopes to repeat the same success with this album, which includes a special DVD with video clips and extras in its deluxe edition. The first song taken from the album is ‘Thinking about you’, the first of the thirteen unreleased songs that make up the album.
