Come away With Me - the album......
The Brooklyn-based artist Norah Jones has sung and played piano professionally since her teens. Come Away With Me reveals her skills as a songwriter and arranger. Norah composed the unforgettable title song Come Away With Me, and Nightingale. She co-wrote The Long Day Is Over. She puts sophistication into Hank Williams' Cold, Cold Heart and transforms the John D. Loudermilk blues ballad Turn Me On (with thanks to Nina Simone, from whose recording Norah learned the song). Come Away With Me blends elements of jazz, soul, country, and folk-pop in a warm mixture which erases all musical boundaries.

Norah, on vocals, piano and Wurlitzer electric piano, is backed seamlessly by a skilled supporting cast. Bassist Lee Alexander, drummer Dan Rieser, and guitarists Jesse Harris and Adam Levy are among the New York musicians with whom Norah has been playing live since the autumn of 2000. Her special guests on Come Away With Me include Bill Frisell (guitar), Kevin Breit (guitar), Brian Blade (drums), Jenny Scheinman (violin), Rob Burger (accordion), Sam Yahel (Hammond B-3 organ) and Kenny Wollesen (drums).

The production is by Arif Mardin the veteran producer/arranger of landmark recordings by Aretha Franklin, Dusty Springfield, Laura Nyro, Roberta Flack, and Willie Nelson, to name a few. Norah and album engineer Jay Newland produced Don't Know Why and Turn Me On, with additional production by Arif. Craig Street is credited with original production of three tracks (Seven Years, Feelin' The Same Way, and The Long Day Is Over), with additional production by Jay and Norah.

Norah and her album "Come Away With Me" won eight Grammys at the 45th Annual Grammy Awards on February 23rd 2003 at Madison Square Garden in New York. Norah won five awards - Album of the Year, Record of the Year (for "Don't Know Why"), Best New Artist, Best Female Pop Vocal Performance (for "Don't Know Why") and Best Pop Vocal Album. In addition, "Don't Know Why" won three awards for Song of the Year (awarded to the songwriter, Jesse Harris), Best Producer, non-classical (Arif Mardin) and Best Engineered album, non-classical (awarded to engineers Husky Huskolds, Arif Mardin and Jay Newland). <more>
