Nora needs to quit hiding behind her guitar & piano, get a wireless mic, stand in front of the crowd and entertain them. When she does do a song on a piano, wheel out a seven foot steinway, instead of a cheap upright. I paid $77 per ticket and had a much better time the next night seeing the Lionel Young Band at the Slippery Noodle for $5 cover charge. There's a reason Lionel's band won the International Blues Challenge in Memphis last year and their solo/duo challenge two years before. www.LionelYoung.com

This show was a shocking disappointment. At the risk of coming off as, not so PC, this was the whitest show I have ever attended. And I am not. From the crowd to the performance, to the setlist, the whole thing needed a big dish of soul. In fact I felt like I left with a little less of mine after the encore and the silent wispery walk from the theatre. Litterally, no one spoke at an audible level for fear they might offend their grandparents who were napping next to them. And, unfortuneately, I'm sure that Norah senced that. Her performace was very straight forward, we learned nothing from the evening besides what we already knew. That she has an amazing voice. You may have been slightly amused to see her come on stage donning a polka dot poodle skirt and a red strata caster, but if you were any sort of music fan, you were already aware of these facts. Her performance was a carbon copy of the muscic you recieved as a bonus when you bought her new album from itunes right down to the predictable Chicago and World band, Wilco cover, that left most people nudging each other to ask, "who's Wilco?" Her voice and the package that she sold us was beautiful, but her demeaner and the new dirrection that she clearly wants to go in, which is evident by the nature of her new album, and the fact that she plays in another all girl rock band, no longer fit her sweet little girl image that drew most of our grandparents and sorority sisters to this show. She would be much better served to follow her musical urges and give the public and herself an honest example of what she clearly would rather be performing.

Norah Jones lives up to relaxed image
By Mark Jordan
Special to The Commercial Appeal
June 10, 2007

Early on in her superb-but-short show at the Mud Island Amphitheater Friday night, Norah Jones recalled the last time she was in Memphis.

"I was here for three weeks last August," Jones said, referring to her stay while filming "My Blueberry Nights." "It was hot, and there were a lot of mosquitoes. But I still love Memphis."

Jones then dedicated "Not My Friend," off of her latest album Not Too Late, to the pesky insects. Later she joked about having a plate of Gus's World Famous Hot & Spicy Chicken waiting for her in her dressing room, but promised, "I won't stop early for that."

Jones didn't have to curb her appetite too long, as she packed 21 songs into an economical hour-and-a-half set. But though short, the performance left few wanting and included most of the Grammy-winning singer's most popular jazz-pop hits along with a few surprises.

An afternoon rainstorm gave way to a cool, pleasant, evening. Jones, who is most closely associated with the piano, started the night on electric guitar, strumming a verse and chorus of her biggest hit "Come Away With Me" before her backing group, the Handsome Band, came in behind her. She and the four-piece outfit then proceeded to play a program that drew equally from each of Jones' three studio albums. Highlights included "Sunrise," her swinging version of Hank Williams Sr.'s "Cold Cold Heart," and "I've Got To See You Again," which with its insinuations of Duke Ellington's "Caravan" and a blistering solo from guitarist Adam Levy, really let Jones and her band show off their jazz chops.
