Click on the link here for Audio Player: Norah Jones at The We Love Green Festival -Sept. 13, 2012
One of the many things I love about the music of Norah Jones is that it fails repeatedly to be pigeon-holed into any specific genre. Mainstream Media have twisted themselves in knots, declaring Jones a Jazz Artist, a Country Artist, an Adult Contemporary Artist. Roots, Rock, Lo-fi – the gamut. Strange, Adult Contemporary sounds like what you hear above your head between shots of Novocaine at the Dentists office.
I would probably vote for something like Contemporary Ethereal, but even then it would pigeon-hole. And the fact that Norah Jones embraces all of it makes it refreshing and signifies to me that what she’s all about is music that is good, regardless of what you label it.
And that’s the whole deal in a nutshell.
So with all that in mind, here is a wonderful concert she did with her band The Willies at the recent We Love Green Festival in Paris and recorded by the ever-amazing and non-pigeon holed FIP from Radio France.
Celebrate the weekend and turn this one up.
