Customer Reviews

Her voice is smooth and singing is flawless on this album.

Ok, I must admit, before buying this CD I never actually listened to Norah, even though I was aware she was a good singer.
Diogo Camacho
Norah Jones, stunningly beautiful, blues infused voice, and Peter Malick and his group have made a beautiful CD.

The word is that these recordings have sat on the shelf for 3 years. The success of Norah Jones forced the music to be brought out. Well, I'm glad it has now seen the light of day! Norah's singing is even more spontaneous and open on these blues flavored tunes than on her own CDs. And while I admit I would not have purchased the album if not for Norah's involvement, I also enjoyed Mr. Malick's guitar playing. He can be subtle when the song calls for it ("Strange Transmissions") and then cut loose on something like the Stones-ish "Things You Don't Have To Do."
I thought Ms. Jones sounded a little like Janis Joplin before, but with this material the resemblance is even more noticeable. She has a true knack for the blues, and it's great to hear this slightly different side of her talents. If you're a fan of Norah's music, get this CD. You won't be disappointed!

This cd makes a great soundtrack to any road-trip, to be sure. Norah's enchanting vocals compliment PMG's groovy tunes, creating a feel-good, head-nodding album. More up-tempo than Norah's debut, but trust me, this is a great thing. Faint echos of Bonnie Rait or *early* Sheryl Crow...
1) New York City - Title track. Begging to be stolen by some cheezy sitcom and ruined forever, that good. :)
2) Strange Transmissions - Slow, sensual build up, with a catchy musical hook that just makes you want to smile. This is a perfect mix between Mrs. Jones and Mr. Malick...hopefully shades of this will appear on Norah's next cd...
3) Deceptively Yours - Light rockin' song with a lot of soul. Think coctail lounge rock and you'll be closer. Blues-y and beautiful.
4) All Your Love - I heard a friend play this on his stereo and swore it was a young Bonnie Raitt. Traditional blues, with a *slight* modern distortion added in to the guitars. Seductive and sassy.
5) Heart of Mine - A Bob Dylan cover to slow things down a bit. Once more, Norah nails a classic song, while PMG's instrumentation drives her on, note for note.
6) Things You Don't Have to Do - The loudest song on the cd. This one will make you want to get up and dance, for sure. Don't be suprised if you find yourself smiling by the end of the song; It just has a feel-good vibe.
7) New York City (Radio Edit)
Overall - One of the best new cd's of the year...I find myself listening to it more and more every day...maybe now that it's hit the radio, it will encourage more people to experience this shining gem. One negative comment - at a running time of 30:04, it's too short! Though better to end it on a high note than to ruin the cd with a bunch of rushed renditions. Short 'n sweet. A must buy for any jazz/Norah/light rock fan. Expect to be hearing more of this on the airwaves.

Ok, first this is a Peter Malick CD and he did a great job assembling talent and production for this CD. However, I doubt it would have ever been released without the success of Norah Jones. My wife and I saw Nora Jones this summer and it was one of the most enjoyable concert experiences we have ever had and BC (before children) we used to go to a lot of concerts.
This EP brings back that sound and intensity that we experienced at the Norah show this summer. Although, it is hard to pigeonhole this EP's sound into just jazz, pop, blues, or what-have-you. It is just great music. I felt like I could melt into it. The tempo is more upbeat from Norah's solo effort and I like it. That's the way she is in concert and I think it is more natural sound for her. Here is the song list:
1) New York City - Title track. Very Sexy. Should be played on all dates. I cannot believe this not a chart hit.
2) Strange Transmissions - Slower, not one of my favorite on the EP, but it takes you away, but a good date soundtrack.
3) Deceptively Yours - My favorite song on the EP. I hope that Nora brings this sound to her second EP and Peter Malick did a wonderful job on this. Nice up tempo sound. This is the new jazz. I think Nora will move toward this sound for her next CD. The songs for the new CD that she is playing in concert sound similar to this. Things could change before they go to production, but so far this song reminds me of about 3 of her newer ones.
4) All Your Love - Nice blues sound. When we saw her in concert she did about 3 songs that sounded like this.
5) Heart of Mine - Bob Dylan penned. Nice sound reminds of her debut CD sound.
6) Things You Don't Have to Do - More Rock oriented. Norah Shares vocals. Nice arrangement by the PMG.

This CD came as a complete surprise, and is a wonderful find for fans of Norah, the blues, and the "soon to be much better known" Peter Malick, a fantastic guitar player who for years has toiled in relative obscurity while playing with Muddy Waters, John Lee Hooker, and other major blues artists.
This is a "short" CD, consisting of 6 tracks, with a radio edit of "New York City" added at the end. 4 of the 6 tracks were written by Malick, with a cover of Dylan's "Heart Of Mine" and a "Chicago-blues" standard, "All Your Love" completing the recording.
The project was the result of Malick stumbling into a club and hearing Norah a few years before her major success of the last year - the two, by way of a mutual interest in the blues, toured together in 2001, and then did two recording sessions together which resulted in this release. The project also features Lee Alexander, the bassist on the "Come Away With Me" project
Malick turns over the vocal duties to Jones on the disc, and you can hear an emerging talent in each of the tracks. Though not quite as polished as the work on "Come Away With Me", the vocals are clear, fresh and distinctive, and are a must hear for any fan of Jones. Particularly worthwhile are the tracks "New York City" where the piano, guitar and percussion interplay is at its best, and Jones's voice sounds so natural in a blues setting. The Dylan cover "Heart Of Mine" is also a real gem, and Norah should be looking through the Dylan catalogue for material, for she has the voice (and talent) to make his music sound vital all over again.
