New York Cityby Peter Malick & Norah Jones
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 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.

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
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.
