I am not a big fan of Jazz but when I listened to her album, I loved her songs. The lyrics are full of emotions and she sang it so well that you will be moved while listening to it.

You may want to try Katie Melua as well then....

I haven’t heard anything about her yet. I just get music sources from friends. Where is she from and what particular song could you recommend for me to listen to? Thanks so much!

She's from the UK, I'd recommend to start with the song The closest thing to crazy.

And if you want to venture into real but accessible jazz rather than these pop/jazz crossovers, then Stacey Kent and Diana Krall would be good names to check out.

Thank you so much for giving these names. I may try these artists sometime but I need to check out our local CD stores if they sell albums from them. Can I have the album title if you don’t mind? Thanks!

KATIE MELUA - Call of the search, Piece by piece
DIANA KRALL - All for you, The look of love, When I look in your eyes
STACEY KENT - Close your eyes, Dreamsville, The boy next door

The latter two have recorded more, but these are good starting points.

Thanks so much. I think I am already familiar with Diana Krall, it seems that I have listened to several of her songs but I am not too good when it comes to memorizing the titles.

I agree - Norah Jones and Katie Melua are greet.

Let me recommed Jack Johnson - Sitting, Waiting, Wishing. It´s from his album "In between Dreams".

Does anyone know if it´s possible to buy a notebook with Norah Jones songs?

Wow! This thread allows me to get to have the names of artists that I have never heard before! Thanks so much guys for all the input. I really appreciate it.

I am not a big fan of Jazz either. However, I am crazy over Norah Jones. 'Don't Know Why" and "Cold Cold Heart" are two of my favorite Norah Jones' song. Her music is like jazz with a little hint of pop.

Norah Jones will be releasing another album this January 30. Be sure to get a copy! I'm sure it will be another big hit.

Norah Jones indeed has great talent and she is known in India too, though not as much for music but for the Indian connection that she has. She is the daughter of the great Indian sitar maestro Pandit Ravi Shankar. Norah's step sister Anoushka Shankar is also a sitar player.

i like norah jones! She has a unique voice, i've always feel like her voice is kinda country style but she use it very well on jazz, her music are really nice to hear when you go on a journey with your car. really relaxing and bring you cozy feeling.. i once use it(i'm not driving though, my bro did)

I've never been much of a jazz person myself, but I agree that Norah Jones is incredible. She's incredibly talented and I think her voice is so beautiful. If you want to buy one of her cd's I would recommend her 'Come Away With Me' cd. It'll give you a great feel for her music and style (plus it's a great cd!). Just a bit of trivia knowledge for you all...her father is the famous Indian sitar player Ravi Shankar.

I agree with you. Norah Jones is incredible. Her voice is very beautiful. Her CD “Come away with ME “gives a great feel of music. She is as talented as her father Ravi shanker.
The lyrics of these songs are full of emotions and she sang it so well that you will be moved while listening to it.

John Watt:

it is getting interesting. i'm realizing ive always looked for a good correspondance, with a good and wealthy opposition or response in regards of volume, ideas, style, honesty, and certainly lots of other qualities too many times drowning in a sea of ones and zeroes.

i have not seen Waterworld, but i guess i can have an idea of what you mean.

paris is odious, as can be a woman who is smart enough to stay reptilian. lately i'm too much into ugly details to make people feel MY paris. maybe it's because of mister Eiffel that i don't use capital letters when i start new sentences. or maybe i'm just lazy.
