Norah Jones的简介

1979年3月30日出生于美国纽约(4岁和母亲移居至德洲,求学过程都在德洲),拥有超龄的才华与甜美温柔的歌声。家中为音乐世家,父亲是著名的印度席塔琴演奏家Ravi Shankar。

15岁进入『干净灵魂美声』艾瑞卡巴度母校在达拉斯的Booker T.Washington高中主修表演及视觉艺术,在学习钢琴和表演的时候,她沉醉到了爵士乐中,从此与爵士乐结下不解之缘。

在连续获得Down Beat学生音乐奖96年及97年『最佳爵士歌手』音乐奖后,99年夏天,结束了在北德克萨斯的两年大学生活以后,她趁着暑假前往纽约,Norah Jones来到纽约后,纽约的音乐氛围令Norah Jones激动不已,她立刻爱上曼哈顿活力充沛的音乐环境。在这里Norah Jones开始热衷于一些出色的词曲作者的作品,也是在这里,她逐渐形成了目前爵士钢琴,创作型的风格,并开始尝试多种音乐风格的融合。后来Norah Jones和词曲作者Jesse Harris,以及贝斯手Lee Alexander组成了一支小乐队,Norah Jones在乐队中担任主唱并兼奏钢琴。

2000年10月Blue Note Records为他们录制了一张试音专辑《First Sessions》,Norah在专辑中尽情展示了自己的才华,在创作中她在源于爵士乐的曲调中加入了自己的激情,并用自己圆润,柔美的嗓音打动了唱片公司,于是仅过了三个月Norah Jones正式签约Blue Note Records,成为Blue Note音乐大厂中最年轻的爵士女伶。并于2002年2月26日发布了第一张专辑《Come Away With Me》。

 

He's got a broken voice and a twisted smile,
guess he's been that way for quite awhile,
got blood on his shoes and mud on his brim,
did he do it to himself or was it done to him?

now people think he don't look well,
but all he needs from what i can tell,
is someone to help wash away all the paint,
from his purple hands before it gets too late.

I saw him stand alone ...
under a broke street light,
so sincere ... singing silent night,
but the trees were full ...
and the grass was green,
it was the sweetest thing i had ever seen.

he may move slow,
that don't mean he's going nowhere,
he may be moving slow,
that don't mean he's going nowhere.
