Album Review

The story goes that, in 2000, while pianist/vocalist Norah Jones was playing regularly at the Living Room in New York's Lower East Side and well before she earned eight Grammys, she received an invitation to sing some blues with guitarist Peter Malick and his band. Reluctantly, Jones admitted to a paucity of blues-singing experience. Thankfully, Malick was persistent. Listening to the rootsy, organic beauty evidenced on New York City, you'd never know Jones hadn't ever sung the blues. Inspired by the classic work of artists such as Ray Charles and Billie Holiday, New York City is a kind of singer/songwriter blues album featuring Jones' particularly haunting vocal style. It's more mainstream than Come Away With Me, but fans of that album should cotton easily to Jones' work here. Conceptualized around the post-9/11 title track, most of Malick's songs are contemporary blues reminiscent of the work of Bonnie Raitt and Eric Clapton. Notably, "Strange Transmissions," a melancholy and atmospheric profession of a love that just can't be denied, showcases Jones as mellow blues diva, while "Heart of Mine" finds the pianist's breathy style perfectly suited to the Bob Dylan nugget. As for leader Malick, he takes the vocal duties on "Things You Don't Have to Do" and graces most of the tracks with his thoughtful and tempered guitar sound.

Customer Reviews

One of the least known and best!

I bought this album on a whim while visiting Tower records in Chicago and it is now in my list of the top 20 albums ever! Heart of Mine is absolutely amazing and in my humble opinion, one of Norah's best...almost as good as Sunrise. And only Norah Jones could achieve the perfection that is experienced while listing to New York City. If you love Norah, you MUST own this album.

Not Norah's best

Norah Jones remains close to bluesy-rock roots on this album than the jazz and country stuff that she's become popular for. I didn't care for "Deceptively Yours" or "Things You Don't Have to Do", mainly because the music (guitar and drums) starts to flush out Norah's beautiful voice. "New York City", "Strange Transmissions", and "All Your Love" are the best songs on the album that showcase Norah's talent. Buy some of the .99 songs, but I wouldn't recommend the entire album.

Could there be a bad Norah Jones song?

This is a little more funk that the normal Norah Jones, but it is nothing short of fantastic. I love it and I am certain you will too. The title track is fantastic, with a touch of funk. Easy decision, grab it.
