A direct descendant from the pedigree of one of the 20th century's virtuosos, Norah Jones might not be on such a lofty artistic level as her dad Ravi Shankar, but certainly inherited some musical intuition from him. With nary a sitar nor raga within earshot, the young newcomer sounds very much an assimilated, western, 21st century pop-jazz singer. One thing that separates her from the pack is Ms. Jones' own piano stylings--not flashy, but deftly doubling or echoing her voice--that discreetly act as the glue holding together these airy, delicate, and beautiful arrangements.
But the centerpiece is certainly the 22-year-old's confident-beyond-her-years vocal delivery in addition to a precise diction and velvety tone. Shades of Nina Simone, vintage Phoebe Snow, and a less beatnik Rickie Lee Jones are evident throughout as the young siren coolly sashays through mostly new material by guitarist-songwriter Jesse Harris (formerly of Once Blue) and a few choice covers. Veteran producer Arif Mardin frames a most notable debut with a translucent touch, and appearances by jazz heroes Bill Frisell and Brian Blade gild the lily.
...Jones' album has the lope of Western swing and the flow of a good live set....Her voice is supple and precise, her touch on piano lovely... - Rating: A-
Entertainment Weekly (03/08/2002)
...Jones' debut is a calming delight, a delicate acoustic dance that pulls country, blues and jazz into a gorgeous, soft-edged rootsy singer-songwriter world...Soothing and substantial.
...Ranks among the most bracing and beautiful in recent memory...
3.5 discs out of 5 - ...She allows a pared-down, semi-acoustic backdrop to showcase her lilting soprano....an auspicious debut...
3.5 out of 5 stars - ...Jones delivers...multigenre cross-cultural eclecticism....It is a voice containing seductive mysteries and also the most exposed human vulnerabilities...
Down Beat (06/01/2002)
3.5 stars out of 5 - ...A quietly captivating triumph of torch song[s]...

Rolling Stone (12/26/2002)
Ranked #74 in Mojo's 100 Modern Classics -- [S]eductive, mysterious songs, slouched jazzily around the rhythm, and slipped in a lonesome touch of twang.
