      About

      About
      Copyright Pierre Hennequin

      A spark of jazz with pop smoke, Norah Jones is a diva who delicately blackens our hearts and illuminates our everyday routine with an apparent softness. She mixes colors, combines shapes: from a young lady, she has become, it is obvious, a great lady of music.


      Norah Jones likes to cover her tracks. She marries jazz, corrupts pop and seduces with a sensual wink the country of her childhood. Here, no bows or Miles Davis-style acrobatics. The Goddess of America, daughter of Ravi Shankar, Indian sitar master, explores the world in her own way, with troubling simplicity. Her nonchalance stuns melancholy, her velvet voice overshadows her shyness and her popularity outwits a discreet personality. His paradoxes are his strength, his audacity anchors his difference.


      She is like that, Norah Jones. She sings in chiaroscuro and twists the shadows of modern society into calm, subtle and sweet songs. Her secret pleasure: tackling serious subjects with poetry, sobriety and a thousand nuances. Like a jazz tightrope walker, the Manhattan Diva, whose sudden success few would have predicted, always evolves in a precarious balance, without a net, between soft ballads and more rhythmic songs.


      For Norah Jones touches on everything, going from one emotion to another as she pleases and making infidelities at her piano, which she sometimes prefers her guitar. Serene and indomitable, she swings her voice from left to right, from north to south, to take her melodies to new horizons. An admirer of Neil Young and Willie Nelson, the American virtuoso never ceases to evolve where no one expects her, with ardour and determination. So there's no need to prove it: Norah Jones has the maturity of the great ladies, and the raw energy of the free young women of this world. The cocktail is worth the detour!

      Highlights

      2002

      A smashing entry in the charts

      No one was waiting for him there, especially not Blue Note, his record company. In the spring, the 22-year-old American singer presents her debut album, Come Away With Me. The success is as enormous as it is unexpected. Norah Jones wins 5 Grammy Awards and ignites the charts. A sudden popularity that the artist sometimes finds difficult to manage: "After a few days, she even called Bruce Lundvall, the boss of her label, to see if it was possible to stop the sales," it is said.

      2004

      Time of confirmation

      Of course, that year, no one hopes to repeat the feat of the first album, with such a resounding success. However, Fells like Home, his second album, was particularly well received. Norah Jones confirms the extent of her talent and becomes, for good, an icon of contemporary jazz.

      2006

      From the stage to the small screen

      This is Norah Jones' second passion: cinema. For the first time, the American artist appears in a film, My Blueberry Night. The Chinese director Wong Kar-Way trusts her to share the poster with Jude Law and Natalie Portman, just that!

      2016

      Le retour aux sources

      After several surprising records, Norah Jones returns to the recipe that made her success, with a jazz radio compatible, capable of seducing jazz lovers and pop aficionados alike. The press salutes the gesture, as does the public. But everyone knows it: Norah Jones is indomitable, and will probably return to unexpected lands as soon as the opportunity arises.

        This concert is a very pleasant surprise. Norah Jones is bewitching us from the start. We rediscover each piece in a new light, with a warmth and depth that we don't suspect at this point when we listen to her records. It's a real joy. 

        Jérôme and Nina, after the concert in Paris

        Norah Jones is an artist like few today: simple, humble, but with an extraordinary talent. Her voice puts everyone in agreement, and her melancholic ballads have this incredible capacity to soothe us, even make us happy. Accompanying him therefore seemed obvious to us.

        With her various albums, Norah Jones has put just about everyone in agreement, her success has been both critical and commercial. Her repertoire, while mainly jazz, is sometimes tinged with folk and country, musical genres that fit her voice perfectly.  
         
        Of her, the boss of the legendary Blue Note label, Bruce Lundvall, who died in 2015, said she was a great artist. Velvety timbre, retro piano, sweet songs: this is the great return to the roots of the pop jazz superstar. The singer's smile is radiant!
