Although she has sold over 36 million albums over the years, for her latest recording Norah Jones decided to change tack. She wanted to give her easy-to-listen-to voice a sharper edge and decided to let Tom Waits producer Jacquire King hone the sound on The Fall. The final result is amazing. The multi-Grammy Award winner has struck the perfect balance between an honest, rough sound and the beauty of her much-loved voice. The 30-year-old American singer has not appeared at the North Sea Jazz Festival before and is therefore a must-see for fans of her subtle, jazzy singer-songwriter repertoire. Revered musicians like guitarist Smokey Hormel (Johnny Cash, Joe Strummer) and drummer Joey Waronker (Beck, R.E.M.) provide the musical backing for her performance.
