Norah Jones at Stubb’s

Norah Jones played two sold out nights at Stubb’s this past weekend.  She is backed by an entirely new five piece band including Joey Waronker on drums (previously drummer for Beck and R.E.M.), Smokey Hormel on lead guitar, James Poyser on keyboard, Gus Seyffert on electric and upright bass, and her longtime friend and talented musician in her own right, Sasha Dobson on supporting vocals, guitar, and accent drums.  Norah switched between electric and acoustic guitars and her Rhodes and upright pianos throughout the set.

Norah’s latest album, The Fall, marks a departure from her jazzy pop sensibilities that are so evident in her earlier work.  The Fall is darker and more heavily grounded in rock influences than her previous albums.  Her set on Sunday night consisted of mostly new material for the first half of the show and then moved into some of her old favorites like Come Away with Me, Don’t Know Why, Sunrise, and Lonestar.  She encored out on the landing of a stairwell above the crowd with Dobson on acoustic guitar, Seyffert on upright bass, and Hormel on resonator guitar.

Norah is an elegant, graceful, and sophisticated performer; the warmth and richness of her voice comes through brilliantly in her live performance.  Her band sounds terrific, too, and I particularly like the relative edginess of her new material.  It suits her well, and it seems like it has empowered her not just as a musician but as an independent woman regaining her footing after the end of a long relationship.  I love hearing the varying influences of rock, blues, jazz, and pop in her music and seeing how she navigates all of these so well in her live performance.  I really look forward to seeing how her music continues to evolve over the coming years.
