Over the course of her 20-year career, Norah Jones may have performed thousands of concerts, but she has never delivered a live album. For ...’Til We Meet Again, released almost two decades after her hit first album Come Away With Me, she opts for the trio and quartet setups, undoubtedly the configurations that best suit her voice and piano. The setlist includes songs recorded between May 2017 and December 2019 in the United States, France, Italy, Brazil and Argentina, with organist Pete Remm, bassists Christopher Thomas and Jesse Murphy, drummers and percussionists Brian Blade and Marcelo Costa, guitarist Jesse Harris and flautist Jorge Continentino.In order to show she’s a major-league performer capable of fully owning everything she sings, Jones shifts seamlessly from the legendary country of Cold Cold Heart by Hank Williams to Black Hole Sun by grunge group Soundgarden (a posthumous tribute to singer Chris Cornell recorded a few days after his death), not to mention her own songs… With false nonchalance but genuine melancholy, Jones picks through her albums Come Away With Me (Don’t Know Why, I’ve Got To See You Again, Cold, Cold Heart), Feels Like Home (Sunrise, Those Sweet Words), Little Broken Hearts (After The Fall) and Day Breaks (Flipside, Tragedy), as well as her most recent series of singles (It Was You, Begin Again, Just A Little Bit). Everything is fluid and coherent. Her piano playing is nicely matured and the chemistry with the exceptional Blade (what a drummer!) reaches real heights here. You’ve got to surrender yourself to this smoky bar jazz (even if you can't smoke in bars anymore…), to the silky velvet blues, deeper and richer than a casual listening might indicate. Then there’s that magical voice with its instantly recognisable timbre, capable of being moving without being weepy, as in the tribute to Cornell that closes this beautiful live set. © Marc Zisman/Qobuz

'Til We Meet Again, the first live album released by Norah Jones, collects highlights from the tours she gave in the wake of the 2016 release of Day Breaks. The 14 songs on 'Til We Meet Again were recorded between 2017 and 2019, taken from performances given in the United States, Italy, France, Brazil, and Argentina. To Jones' credit, the album doesn't feel like it was cobbled together from different sources. The music flows easily, with Jones taking the time to stretch and solo, playing with her vocal phrasing just enough to enliven older songs and give newer tunes a lift. There are some overt surprises, such as a closing cover of Soundgarden's "Black Hole Sun" that was given a week after Chris Cornell's 2017 death at the same Detroit venue where the band played their last show, but this isn't an album that upends expectations. Rather, it's a testament to the enduring elegance of Norah Jones' jazz-pop while also offering proof of the depth of her songbook. © Stephen Thomas Erlewine /TiVo

A misconception has sometimes been associate with Norah Jones: that the Texan is little more than a pleasant light-jazz singer whose albums serve as harmless background music for high-brow and proper evening dinners. Though her writing, playing and eclectic collaborations, she has clearly proved that she is far more interesting than this cliché. And this 2020 offering is a new illustration of her complexity. As is often the case with Norah Jones, Pick Me Up Off the Floor is not quite jazz, not quite blues, not quite country, etc… Her genre-defying music works primarily to suit the song being played. Here we find what has been left behind after sessions with Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy, Thomas Bartlett, Mavis Staples, Rodrigo Amarante and several others.But for all that the result is not simply a contrived mishmash of collaborations but a collection of songs that hold the same silky groove (present on six out of 11 tracks on the record in which Brian Blade’s drums work delicate miracles) and calm sound which increasingly suits the artist, somewhere between pure poetry and realism. “Every session I’ve done, there’ve been extra songs I didn’t release, and they’ve sort of been collecting for the last two years. I became really enamoured with them, having the rough mixes on my phone, listening while I walk the dog. The songs stayed stuck in my head and I realised that they had this surreal thread running through them. It feels like a fever dream taking place somewhere between God, the Devil, the heart, the Country, the planet, and me.” Rarely has Norah Jones sang with such strength, like on I’m Alive where she sings of women’s resilience, or on How I Weep in which she tackles love and exasperation with unequalled grace. © Marc Zisman/Qobuz

Once she came to the end of the promotional cycle for 2016's Day Breaks, Norah Jones decided to challenge herself by recording a series of swift sessions with a rotating cast of collaborators. The intention was to release the results quickly, issuing them as a digital single at a time, and Jones followed through on this plan, releasing a new song every few months throughout 2018. These tunes were rounded up on 2019's Begin Again, but that wasn't the end of the project. Jones cut a number of songs during these sessions that were unreleased but not forgotten by the singer/songwriter. She kept listening to the rough mixes, eventually coming to the conclusion that these tracks would make a strong album of their own accord. Pick Me Up Off the Floor proves her instincts were correct. Lacking the purposeful digressions of Begin Again -- an album where the digressions were the entire point -- Pick Me Up Off the Floor is a tighter affair than its companion record, firmly rooted in the after-hours jazz-folk-pop hybrid that's Jones' calling card. Some of the cohesion may be due to how a good chunk of the album is anchored by her standby drummer Brian Blade, but it's also true that this record's collaboration with Jeff Tweedy is the amiably rambling "I'm Alive," a number that is firmly stationed within Jones' wheelhouse. The same could be said about Pick Me Up Off the Floor in general. There are accents and flourishes that distinguish the tunes -- "Flame Twin" is charged by curlicues of guitars and smears of organ, "To Live" is graced by muted horns straight out of the Big Easy -- but as a collection of songs, Pick Me Up Off the Floor winds up emphasizing how Jones slyly and elegantly synthesizes a pop sensibility with a jazz execution, a fusion that is comforting yet relies on her idiosyncratic twists. This blend of warmth and invention is what's so appealing about Pick Me Up Off the Floor: the shape may seem familiar, but the construction of the songs and the inventiveness of the performance keeps it fresh and surprising even after the first listen. © Stephen Thomas Erlewine /TiVo
