Description
"... the debut album by pianist and singer Norah Jones, released in 2002. This album's unique combination of jazz, folk, and soul, as well as Jones's fresh voice, caught the attention of consumers and critics alike. Come Away with Me sold approximately twenty million copies worldwide and won five awards at the Grammy Awards of 2003, including "Record of the Year", "Album of the Year", and "Song of the Year" for "Don't Know Why". Although Norah was happy about her success, she told reporters in a "60 Minutes" interview: "I felt like I went to another person's party and ate all of the Birthday cake". The album was released on 26 February 2002, and had a slow rise up the charts, eventually gaining a Platinum certification from the RIAA on 22 August 2002. It went on to sell over seven million copies over the next year, and on 15 February 2005, was certified Diamond by the RIAA. The genre of this CD is often the subject of debate, especially within the vocal jazz community. Many artists hold that because Jones made few changes to the original melody and rhythm of the covered tracks such as "Turn Me On" and "The Nearness of You" that this album does not qualify as jazz, which entails some degree of interpretation/improvisation. Still, the presence of accomplished jazz musicians Bill Frisell, Adam Rogers, Brian Blade, and Sam Yahel, as well as the sophisticated jazz-influenced compositions of Jesse Harris, give the album a jazz feel.
