Hear the latest CD from Norah Jones, Day Breaks, on the Four Corners feature CD
KSUT will feature the new Norah Jones CD Day Breaks, on its release date, October 7, at noon. Her stunning sixth solo album, 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.”
“Norah Jones has a way of being there when you need her - a warm, honeyed voice, right up against your ear, AutoTune-free and honest,” wrote the Boston Globe in a rave review of Norah’s first-ever Newport Jazz Festival this summer, in front of the festival’s first sold-out audience in over 25 years. Norah also became only the 4th artist in history to perform at both the Newport Folk and Jazz festivals in the same year.
