Please excuse my excessive tardiness, but I am now a Norah Jones fan.

    In taking advantage of the Black Friday $9.99 CD sale at Circuit City, I picked up the Norah Jones Come Away With Me CD. This is an awesome album! Simply great! Now I know what all the hub-bub has been about! Her voice is great, as is the music. I know, I know. It's about time I joined the 21st century. Well, better late than never. Now, where is the SACD?

    I had my second revelation, in a sense, this evening. Another CD I bought for $9.99 on Black Friday was Diana Krall Live in Paris. I now see why everyone has been raving about this disc here. This is another great CD. The sound quality is one thing, but the performance is sensational. This one is a must-have. I so hope Universal puts this one on SACD.

    I simply don't enjoy Norah's voice, to me, it's just a bit too baby-like in some respects. The music isn't bad, but I can't get past her voice.

    I'm with you Patrick. And, I was scolded recently for saying so in another thread on this forum. What irks me the most is that this woman can probably REALLY sing but she's playin with her voice to give her stuff a distinct sound because someone told her that's how to sell albums. Just sing!!!!! I also fault whoever setup the mics because the one she is singing into must be about 3 mm from her tonsils.

    I'm waiting to see if the SACDs will be hybrids.

    Waiting... waiting...

    Evan and Lee,

    I've read a lot of positives about the Krall DVD. I'll have to get it. Do the DVD and CD have the same performance?


    Lee,

    Oh I know that the Jones and Krall albums have been getting a lot of talk here. I just finally got around to picking them up. Glad I did. I'll be getting the Jones SACD. No question about it.

    Keith, I don't have the CD, but the DVD version sounds AMAZING. It's in my player so much I think the thing is worn out. Her band is mesmerizing to watch in that DVD and it sounds as good as any redbook CD in my collection easily.

    Evan,
    I will have to check out that DVD. Thanks.
    Marty,
    I have read about Karrin Allyson in other threads but haven't gotten to her yet. All in time. Thanks. [​IMG]

    Greg, Diana Krall is great. Check out Love Scenes, When I Look In Your Eyes, and Live in Paris. They are all winners.

    Amen, Keith! I just picked up Norah's disc today at lunch...and already I'm scouring the web for tickets to her concert in Atlanta this month!!!

    Her voice, to me, is simply astonishing. In a different way than Krall, but astonishing nonetheless.

    I'm also in the "pro-Norah" camp. I think she's great on the CD, but where she really shines is on the stage. She does have a bit of work to do on her stage presence, but her voice is simply amazing live. Even better than on the CD, and that usually doesn't happen much (to my ears, at least). Now I gotta jump on the Diana Krall bandwagon. I like what I've heard, which isn't much.

    As I continue to listen to the Norah Jones CD, and I am more and more impressed with her. Ditto for the Krall Live in Paris CD. I will definitely be getting the Jones SACD and really hope that Universal will release the Krall title on SACD.
