Barnes & Noble - William Pearl
Peter Malick is a very lucky guy. Sure, he’s a talented guitarist and songwriter, but it’s in his choice of friends that fate has smiled on him. Just a few years before she hit it big, singer Norah Jones and Malick worked together, and in 2000 they recorded the tracks for what eventually became New York City. Considering that Jones would soon cut Come Away with Me, Malick’s project -- basically an extended EP at a smidgen over a half hour -- captures the singer right on the cusp of vocal maturity. In fact, the mellow-grooving title track, offered in both an extended version and a radio-friendly edit, sounds as if it could fit nicely on Jones’s breakout debut. Malick’s ...

Peter Malick is a very lucky guy. Sure, he’s a talented guitarist and songwriter, but it’s in his choice of friends that fate has smiled on him. Just a few years before she hit it big, singer Norah Jones and Malick worked together, and in 2000 they recorded the tracks for what eventually became New York City.

In fact, the mellow-grooving title track, offered in both an extended version and a radio-friendly edit, sounds as if it could fit nicely on Jones’s breakout debut. Malick’s own promising material fits Jones beautifully, as does an inspired cover of Bob Dylan’s “Heart of Mine.” And anyone who longs to hear Jones sing the blues will be in luck: On Magic Sam’s “All Your Love” the gamine singer gets downright down-and-dirty.
All Music Guide - Matt Collar
The story goes that, in 2000, while pianist/vocalist Norah Jones was playing regularly at the Living Room in New York's Lower East Side and well before she earned eight Grammys, she received an invitation to sing some blues with guitarist Peter Malick and his band. Reluctantly, Jones admitted to a paucity of blues-singing experience. Thankfully, Malick was persistent. Listening to the rootsy, organic beauty evidenced on New York City, you'd never know Jones hadn't ever sung the blues. Inspired by the classic work of artists such as Ray Charles and Billie Holiday, New York City is a kind of singer/songwriter blues album featuring Jones' particularly haunting vocal style. It's more mainstream than Come Away With Me, but fans of that album should cotton easily to Jones' work here. Conceptualized around the post-9/11 title track, most of Malick's songs are contemporary blues reminiscent of the work of Bonnie Raitt and Eric Clapton. Notably, "Strange Transmissions," a melancholy and atmospheric profession of a love that just can't be denied, showcases Jones as mellow blues diva, while "Heart of Mine" finds the pianist's breathy style perfectly suited to the Bob Dylan nugget. As for leader Malick, he takes the vocal duties on "Things You Don't Have to Do" and graces most of the tracks with his thoughtful and tempered guitar sound.

There are unearthed chestnuts here.... Any new Norah (even if this isn't exactly new) is good Norah.

    BE CAREFUL!!!!

    DO NOT buy the remix version! Repeat...don't buy the remix version it is techno-pop junk with all the blues stripped out! It's absolutely awful! Apparently, Ms. Jones did not own the rights, or she would never have agreed to this destruction of a fine album. The original is good stuff, worth maybe 4 stars.

    Classic Jones

    I had to buy this CD as soon as I saw it was featuring Norah Jones! Let me tell you, it is worth every cent too! Soulful, relaxing, straight to the heart music. Between the music Peter Malick creates, and Norah's fabulous voice, this CD is perfection. "New York City"...what a beautiful disease. Indeed. It is 7 tracks, "New York City" being played first and last, the last time with a little bit of difference...but it's all good! You have to buy this CD! Carrie
