I really like this sound.

I saw her on her first big tour when she was all the rage and "Don't know why" was all over the radio.  She had a good voice but was not in any way a polished performer in front of a crowd.

I'd like to see her again especially if she was playing more stuff like this.

Lovely song. I do believe that's Wayne Shorter on sax.

Saw her live at Tahoe a few years ago and what struck me was her insistence to not be The Girl Who Sings "Don't Know Why" Songs All Night.

Lots of variety, style changes, and good musicianship. Made me want to like her as someone really trying to do good stuff. Respect.

now I have heard Burn many times and the music is truly stunning, but I just can't get around her voice, her voice is trying to much to be cool, too laid back, I think. If her voice would be as jazzy as the music is, then it would be a solid 10 from me, but not now….
{#Idea} maybe if she would be singing jazz 10 years more it would mature her voice, I hope!

She does work with a lot of good musicians; I guess being on Blue Note Records doesn't hurt.

This cloying affect were singers (guys and gals alike) misshape vowel sounds - in this song where she says 'shreds', but changes the short e to a long a sound so it comes out like 'shrades' - is so very annoying. I hate it to the core of my soul - truly deeply hate it. But I let it slide for Norah.

How did a woman this young get so much soul in her voice?  "Burn" is exactly what she does to me.

 
When she first hit the scene I thought she was quite overrated because the positive criticism she was receiving put her at superstar status. She seemed very accomplished to me, but not the stuff of legends.  Here we are years later and she really seems to have become quite the mature and accomplished artist.  Kudos.
