Norah Jones will make TV appearances this week in support of her critically acclaimed new album Day Breaks, which is described in a press release as "an affecting work of deep beauty for our turbulent times." These definitely are turbulent times, and Jones is that rare breed of popular MOR type artist whose work is as strong as it is successful. And her new album features jazz luminaries including Blue Note labelmates Wayne Shorter, Lonnie Smith, and Brian Blade, and has covers of tunes by Horace Silver, Duke Ellington and Neil Young, plus a bunch of originals.
