2016 EU issue on 180g LP+download-Now Norah has truly come full circle with Day Breaks, a remarkable new album that finds her returning to the piano and her jazz roots while also proving her to be this era's quintessential American artist, the purveyor of an unmistakably unique sound that weaves together the threads of several bedrock styles of American music: country, folk, rock, soul, jazz. Day Breaks is a kindred spirit to Come Away With Me, though it is unquestionably the work of a mature artist who has lived life and grown immensely in her craft.

9-Time Grammy-Winner Returns to the Piano & Her Roots on New Album featuring Jazz Luminaries Wayne Shorter, Dr. Lonnie Smith and Brian Blade!

Norah Jones presents her stunning sixth solo album which is a kindred spirit to the singer's breakout debut Come Away With Me and finds the 9-time Grammy-winner returning to the piano and her roots. The album features jazz luminaries including her Blue Note label mates saxophonist Wayne Shorter, organist Dr. Lonnie Smith, and drummer Brian Blade on a 12-song set that presents 9 new originals alongside covers of songs by Horace Silver, Duke Ellington and Neil Young. "This new album feels full circle because I'm going back to my early influences," says Norah. "After the first record, I drifted away from the piano a little bit. I still played it, but was more inspired to write on guitar. I really loved playing piano on this record."

In 2014, Norah traveled to Washington DC to take part in the Kennedy Center's historic "Blue Note at 75" concert celebrating the 75th anniversary of the legendary label that she has called home since the late Bruce Lundvall signed her in 2000. Surrounded by a family of Blue Note musicians including McCoy Tyner, Wayne Shorter, Dr. Lonnie Smith, Robert Glasper and others, Norah was inspired. After performing a gorgeous solo piano rendition of Hoagy Carmichael's "The Nearness of You" she was joined by what she referred to on-stage as "one of the best bands I've ever played with" featuring Shorter on saxophone, Brian Blade on drums, John Patitucci on bass, and Jason Moran on piano for a stunning version of the Jesse Harris song "I've Got To See You Again" that appeared on Come Away With Me.

That thrilling experience planted a seed...Now Norah has truly come full circle with Day Breaks, a remarkable new album that finds her returning to the piano and her jazz roots while also proving her to be this era's quintessential American artist, the purveyor of an unmistakably unique sound that weaves together the threads of several bedrock styles of American music: country, folk, rock, soul, jazz.
