Norah Jones - Feels like Home
Written by Nicholas Jennings    PDF Print E-mail

Norah Jones - Feels like HomeThe jazziest thing here is “The Prettiest Thing,” a song she co-wrote. And “Don’t Miss You at All,” with her lyrics set to Duke Ellington’s “Melancholia,” also leans naturally toward jazz. Otherwise, the second album by the 24-year-old Jones is heartfelt adult pop, spanning folk, blues and country. There’s even a giddy bluegrass duet with Dolly Parton (“Creepin’ In”) and a gorgeous Tom Waits cover (“The Long Way Home”). Although guitars are more prominent than her own piano, Jones’ voice remains as sultry as ever.
