What a ride it s been for Norah Jones since that night in March 2002, when I first heard her rich, seductive tones as she performed in a cramped room above an Indian restaurant in downtown Austin at a South by Southwest showcase. A few months later she recorded her first Austin City Limits. Now, after five years, many millions of CD s sold, a shelf full of Grammy Awards, and worldwide acclaim, Norah returns to ACL as one of the most successful and respected recording artists of the decade. This performance from June 14, 2007, includes some of those now-classics that captivated an audience longing for heartfelt music. It also highlights her growth as a serious songwriter on her third CD, Not Too Late. These new songs are more honest, closer to my gut, she says. This record is much more personal....I like writing songs that are not so cut-and-dried, songs with a twist to them.
One thing that hasn t changed is her passion for all kinds of musical styles, which probably has a lot to do with growing up in Texas and now living in the heart of New York City. Touches of smoky jazz, country twang, Memphis soul and old-fashioned Tin Pan Alley permeate her original songs as well as her choice of other songwriters material.
Watching her on the ACL stage is the next best thing to having her sitting at a piano in your living room. She and her longtime band mates slide into a groove as cozy as an old pair of slippers. They venture into some new musical territory, but at the center of it all is that voice, that voice that has touched millions around the world. As Time Magazine put it, she may just prove to be the most natural singer of her generation.

Watching Norah and her Handsome Band perform her many sultry songs is just such a treat. I very much enjoy the unusual percussion instruments, Norah's laid back style and humility, not to mention the well above average talents of each band member.
I was surprised that another reviewer stated that she appeared to have taken on the style of a Diva and had lost her humility, I just didn't have that impression at all after watching this DVD four times. She gives credit to each band member, mentioning all names and doesn't try to over-shadow anyone of them.
I would characterize Nora's vocal style as a triple threat melding jazz, blues, and country-folk. Her playlist is well-rounded and I think most people would enjoy at least 90% of the songs on this DVD.
This DVD is a must own for anyone who truly enjoys female vocalists. I was also surprised to see that Norah performs many songs away from the piano playing electric and acoustic guitar.

Overall, this is a very good concert. Thanks!!!!
Just hear it and enjoy.
18 songs, some are already present in her other DVDs but they made a good job in re-creating them, and for the new ones, they keep up the level.
In all, excellent value for the money.
