After the 2016 release of her acclaimed album Day Breaks and the extensive world tour that followed, the versatile singer-songwriter Norah Jones has been back in the studio following her muse down creative pathways without any expectations or boundaries. Today, Norah releases “It Was You,” an organ-and-horn-drenched soul song that is the second in a series of singles. “It Was You” features Norah on voice and piano with drummer Brian Blade, bassist Christopher Thomas, organist Pete Remm, trumpeter Dave Guy, and tenor saxophonist Leon Michels. It follows the release of her riveting song “My Heart Is Full,” a collaboration with Thomas Bartlett that is currently being featured in an HBO image campaign.
Norah also recently released the new DVD/Blu-ray concert film Live at Ronnie Scott’s (Eagle Rock), which captured the 9-time GRAMMY-winner in an intimate trio performance with Blade and Thomas at the famed London jazz club. Impressive in its stripped-back, understated elegance, the show witnessed Norah’s hypnotic reconnection with the piano as she performed songs from across her storied career from her latest album Day Breaks to her 2002 debut Come Away With Me. Watch the trio perform “Flipside.”
Norah is currently on tour with Blade and Thomas with upcoming concerts across Europe this month, and has added new dates to a series of shows she’ll play in California this Fall including her debut appearance at the Monterey Jazz Festival (September 23) and a concert at The Theatre at Ace Hotel in Los Angeles (September 25).
