"Feels Like Home"
Norah Jones' 1992 debut album Come Away With Me is a classic,
as it was a huge winner at the Grammys, and the biggest hit from it,
"Don't Know Why" caught many music fans' attention. Her follow up
album in 1994, Feels Like Home reached #1 on the Billboard album
chart, as did her debut. "Sunrise" was the most popular hit, and
for those who enjoyed her debut, her sophomore release is a continuation
of jazz & country-tinged tunes.
"What Am I To You" has a good blues feel, and if Janis Joplin
was around, this song could fit her style, in a mellow fashion, and
country-tingued as heard by Wynonna Judd. "Those Sweet Words"
has the Jazz sound as heard on her first album. "Carnival Town"
has great harmonies, and a country-tinged flavor. "In The Morning"
is very laid back, great piano, a bit bluesy, yet country-tinged as Wynonna.
Not only does Wynonna come to mind on some songs, another fabulous artist
to compare is the late Eva Cassidy. Cassidy's blues style can be associated
with "Be Here To Love Me." "Creepin' In" definitely has a
more country sound, as this song gets help from fellow country legend Dolly
Parton. "Toes" could also pass as Country, as it is another nice,
pleasant, laid back composition.
"Humble Me" has the accoustical guitar as heard on Simon &
Garfunkel's "Homeward Bound," and has a folkish sound in general,
yet Jones' vocals gives it the expertise. "Above Ground" is another
cool song, country-tinged as Wynonna again. "The Long Way Home"
also has a good country sound. "The Prettiest Thing" could also pass
as Country, likewise blues as heard from Bonnie Raitt. The album's closing
song has the standard Jazz style, compared to Diana Krall.
A good continuation from her debut, Feels Like Home is an excellent
mix of Jazz, Country and Blues. More country on most songs, Country fans
will probably enjoy this release the most. Wynonna Judd's style comes to
mind on most of the country-tinged songs as well. A good, relaxing album
to come home to.
