72 degrees. Slow rolling clouds. On my deck. Light mojito. No better way to spend a Wednesday afternoon.

The story goes that, in 2000, while pianist/vocalist 
Norah Jones
 was playing regularly at the Living Room in New York's Lower East Side and well before she earned eight Grammys, she received an invitation to sing some blues with guitarist 
Peter Malick
 and his band. Reluctantly, 
Jones
 admitted to a paucity of blues-singing experience. Thankfully, 
Malick
 was persistent. Listening to the rootsy, organic beauty evidenced on 
New York City
, you'd never know 
Jones
 hadn't ever sung the blues.

Inspired by the classic work of artists such as 
Ray Charles
 and 
Billie Holiday

New York City
 is a kind of singer/songwriter blues album featuring 
Jones
' particularly haunting vocal style. It's more mainstream than 
Come Away With Me
, but fans of that album should cotton easily to 
Jones
' work here.


Conceptualized around the post-9/11 title track, most of 
Malick
's songs are contemporary blues reminiscent of the work of 
Bonnie Raitt
 and 
Eric Clapton
. Notably, "Strange Transmissions," a melancholy and atmospheric profession of a love that just can't be denied, showcases 
Jones
 as mellow blues diva, while "Heart of Mine" finds the pianist's breathy style perfectly suited to the 
Bob Dylan
nugget. As for leader 
Malick
, he takes the vocal duties on "Things You Don't Have to Do" and graces most of the tracks with his thoughtful and tempered guitar sound.

I had half forgotten about it myself, until I listened to some other Patton stuff a while back.

Must say it sounds even better now than when I was 15. Must have gone right over my head much of it.

Yeah I bought it when I was 20, there was just nothing like it at the time. All 3 of their albums are worth giving some time to. California is more commercial but none less interesting. In fact, as far as studio recording/method goes its a work of art!
