What a ride it s been for Norah Jones since that night in March 2002, when I first heard her rich, seductive tones as she performed in a cramped room above an Indian restaurant in downtown Austin at a South by Southwest showcase. A few months later she recorded her first Austin City Limits. Now, after five years, many millions of CD s sold, a shelf full of Grammy Awards, and worldwide acclaim, Norah returns to ACL as one of the most successful and respected recording artists of the decade. This performance from June 14, 2007, includes some of those now-classics that captivated an audience longing for heartfelt music. It also highlights her growth as a serious songwriter on her third CD, Not Too Late. These new songs are more honest, closer to my gut, she says. This record is much more personal….I like writing songs that are not so cut-and-dried, songs with a twist to them.

One thing that hasn t changed is her passion for all kinds of musical styles, which probably has a lot to do with growing up in Texas and now living in the heart of New York City. Touches of smoky jazz, country twang, Memphis soul and old-fashioned Tin Pan Alley permeate her original songs as well as her choice of other songwriters material.

Watching her on the ACL stage is the next best thing to having her sitting at a piano in your living room. She and her longtime band mates slide into a groove as cozy as an old pair of slippers. They venture into some new musical territory, but at the center of it all is that voice, that voice that has touched millions around the world. As Time Magazine put it, she may just prove to be the most natural singer of her generation.
