Norah Jones




It strikes me as strange, when I have over fifty different compact discs and yet I go through times when I will listen to a particular song or a particular album over and over again.  So, this is currently the case with the above album by Norah Jones, which incidentally was the first solo album that she released to start off her musical career back in 2002.  She has a magical, soothing, dreamy voice which has a lovely timbre and one which distinguishes her voice from other singers. 


"Norah Jones (born Geethali Norah Jones Shankar on March 30, 1979) is an American singer-songwriter and actress.  In 2002, she launched her solo music career with the release of the commercially successful and critically acclaimed album Come Away With Me,  which was certified a diamond album in 2002, selling over 20 million copies.   The record earned Jones five Grammy Awards, including the Album of the Year, Record of the Year and Best New Artist.  Her subsequent studio albums, Feels Like Home, released in 2004, Not Too Late, released in 2007, the same year she made her film debut in My Blueberry Nights, and her 2009 release The Fall, reached Platinum status after selling over a million copies and were generally well received by critics.  Jones has won nine Grammy Awards and was Billboard magazine's 60th-best-selling music artist of the 2000–2009 decade.  Throughout her career, Jones has won numerous awards and has sold over 37 million albums worldwide. Billboard magazine named her the top Jazz artist of the 2000–2009 decade, establishing herself as one of the best-selling artists of her time."  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Norah_Jones
