Norah Jones @ Carnegie Music Hall [Giveaway]
After several months of touring and a few months of rest, Norah Jones is finally back in Pittsburgh.
One year ago, Jones filled Mr. Smalls with her soothing, contemporary jazz pop sounds along with Sasha Dobson and Catherine Popper; but this fall, she’s on her own. After kicking off her tour in Wilkes-Barre, the legendary vocalist and pianist will be taking the stage at Carnegie Music Hall of Oakland on Wed., Oct. 21 at 8PM.
Though Jones is not touring to show off a new album, the tour will commemorate her countless previous albums, particularly “Little Broken Hearts.” The 2012 work and her fifth studio album features hits such as “She’s 22” and the album’s namesake.
Jones’s first album, “Come Away With Me,” was a game-changer, hitting the airwaves in the early 2000s with the young singer’s unique blues tone and coffeehouse beats. According to Spotify, the singer began exploring her talent publicly in high school and hasn’t stopped since. The recipient of eight Grammy Awards, Jones’s musical works are no small feat, especially after the widespread criticism that her father’s fame brought her the same fate. However, Jones’s tones proved themselves worthy of attention and praise (after all, many of her songs have over fifteen million downloads on Spotify).
The vocalist and pianist has altered her sound slightly since her 2002 music takeover; the artist now employs a pop-ish undertone with a focus on her copacetic musical relationship with her band’s light, happy sound. The band-consisting of The Candles bass player Josh Lattanzi, keyboardist Pete Remm, guitarist Jason Roberts, and She & Him drummer Greg Wieczorek-is touring with Jones as she makes her way from PA to the west, and then back to New York.
This year’s performance will take place in Pittsburgh’s renowned Carnegie Music Hall, which boasts a seating capacity of close to two thousand people. Located in the Carnegie Museum and Library building in Oakland, the venue opens at 7PM, and Jones’s nostalgic, calming voice will begin serenading the crowd at 8PM. Tickets range from $50-$70 and can be purchased online.
