ALBUMS THAT NORAH JONES HAS BEEN LISTENING TO
"Instead of picking all my usual favorites, I thought
I'd pick some new things that I've been listening to.
There are some new albums below as well as some
classics." --Norah Jones
The Milk Eyed Mender, Joanna Newsom
One of the most beautiful and unique recordings I've
ever heard. I've fallen in love with her harp playing,
her voice and songs.
Transfiguration of Vincent, M. Ward
His songs are amazing and the production on his CDs is
Martha Wainwright, Martha Wainwright
She's one of my favorite singers. Very passionate.
I'm Wide Awake, It's Morning, Bright Eyes
This is probably my favorite collection of his songs.
Al Anderson, Al Anderson
This is a killer recording from 1972. A classic.
Mint, Rachel Loshak
My favorite CD of hers.
Uh Huh Her, PJ Harvey
I'd always known her name, but just recently started
listening to her. I can't get enough. She's quickly
become one of my favorites. I also love Stories from
the City, Stories from the Sea.
Come Around, Tony Scherr
One of the best guitar players I've ever seen. This is
his first collection of original songs and they are
On the Beach, Neil Young
It's nice to know that the quest for great Neil Young
records can be satisfied over, and over and over
again. This is my latest favorite.
Let It Die, Feist
Ever since I got her first CD, Monarch (now an eBay
collectors item), five years ago, Feist had been one
of my favorite well-kept secrets. I'm so happy that
she is no longer a secret. One of the best live
singers I've ever heard. Though Let It Die shows only
a side of her, it is a great side! Check out the title
Planet Waves, Bob Dylan
An amazing record that he did with The Band. Some of
my favorite songs are on here.
I Am a Bird Now, Antony and the Johnsons
I've been craving this music. His voice is haunting
and the songs are different and so beautiful.
Violent Femmes, Violent Femmes
One of my favorites as a high school freshman. I only
recently rediscovered it. Still great.
Lush Life, John Coltrane
Another favorite CD from high school that I've
Mule Variations, Tom Waits
I realized that this is the album I have listened to
the most in the past seven years. I never ever get
tired of it.
O.C.M.S., Old Crow Medicine Show
Such a great live band that I was afraid their CD
wouldn't be able to live up, but it did!
