Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

Nora Jones

Not Too Late

2007-01-24

Should be no surprise to anyone that this music is pleasing to the ears: soothing and seductive, in a red lace kind of way. Every tune is solid, though none are particularly remarkable, which is, I think, what IS remarkable: Nora makes some really nice music while staying close to home. That’s not to say that this music is not creative and original, because it is. It’s just amazing how a musician can get so much out of her music without taking up too much musical space. Beautiful, at times haunting, always gentle, even when there’s bad news being conveyed. -- Mostly
