Overview

This groovy disc assembles eight remixes of tracks from New York City, a set of tunes recorded in 2000 by songwriter-guitarist Peter Malick and a then-unknown singer named Norah Jones. These new mixes bring the soulful, pre–"Don't Know Why" pipes of Ms. Jones to the dance floor, with varied results, depending on the knob-twiddlers behind them. Bastone & Burnz are best known for tweaking hits by Jennifer Lopez, Jamiroquai, and Shakira, while Giant Step regular DJ Strobe ushers in a cool down-tempo vibe. And finally, Lance Desardi, a.k.a. LandShark, lends his mixes a soulful West Coast feel. It's a whole new way to enjoy Norah.

Awesome CD, just picked it up today. They did a real nice job with the remix. Nice choice with that newcommer Split-Vizionz on the first track, he's got a great flow.

I was a bit skeptical that this was merely another attempt to cash in on an artists success, but being a huge fan of Norah Jones, I took the plunge. I've listened to the CD a few times, and couldn't be more pleasently suprised how wrong I was. It really sounds like a whole new album. The original Peter Malick CD was very blues-rock. This CD is completly the opposite, very electronic and eclectic. My favorite mixes are the downtempo DJ Strobe mixes of Decptively Yours and the first New York City, which added a nice touch with the guest vocalist. The other mixes are nice as well, being more dance oriented. Even if you're not a fan of Norah Jones but like electronica, give it a listen.

Norah Jones has such a nice style I wasn't sure this would translate well into being remixed, but the people the chose to do the remixes did a great job. With the exception of the "dubs", the tracks highlite Norah's vocals and keep true to the songs, yet they are reborn with new mixes. Of all the songs on the CD, I favor the DJ Strobe Brooklyn Vibe mix of "New York" and "Deceptively Yours," which take Norah on an nice electronica journey. The other tracks lean more towards a dance feel, with some nice variety to set them apart. It is a well rounded package, and should appeal to people whether you're a fan or not of Miss Jones. Definately worth a listen!

All I can say is WOW! The whole CD is great, but that first cut with that Split-Vizionz guy was the shizzy! Too bad he plays for the other team (if you know what I mean ;)

I just recieved my copy of THE REMIX ALBUM and I must say that it is extremely exciting to hear Norah Jones over music that is so lively and fun. I was intrigued by the first song in which there is a featured rapper who believe it or not adds a new dimension to the song. I wonder where they found that guy? Anyway, the album is very solid and I am happy with my purchase
