I've been very into acquiring music lately. It's exciting to me when certain artists come out with a new album, and while I don't have the time to keep up with music the way I used to, I still relish a great album just like I do a decadent piece of deep, dark chocolate. I don't want it to end. And when it does, I want more.
This is exactly how I felt when I stumbled across this Norah Jones album, New York City, with Peter Malick. Now, it's been out since 2003, but it's just a great album (I love her others too, but this is my fave). It's up there in my top ten and I still listen to it as much as I do new releases, so I had to tell you about this one. It starts out smooth and melodic, and builds to a more full sound. A few songs would be great to slow dance to, and others to do more of a blues-y style swing dance. I like to just sit and enjoy a good cup of tea and relax at the end of a long day. To me, this one ranks right up there with Miles Davis' Kind of Blue. Nothing complicated, nothing offensive. It's just a feelgood kind of album. Enjoy!
