Norah Jones 

Coming to Alltel Oct. 19

NORAH JONES:
  • NORAH JONES:
There was no "sophomore jinx," as the pop music critics like to call it, for Norah Jones. Her follow-up to the multi-Grammy- Award-winning, eight-times platinum debut "Come Away With Me" was "Feels Like Home," and it has felt like a hit to fans and critics from its first appearance in February. The 25-year-old daughter of Indian sitar legend Ravi Shankar walked away with an astonishing eight Grammys in 2003 (including Best New Artist) thanks to the album that featured the heartfelt hit, "Don’t Know Why," and she figures to grab a few more honors next time too with her diverse delivery and songwriting — on both albums she’s mixed sultry smooth vocals and jazz with country and pop, and making it sound like the styles always belonged together. Jones and her band make their first-ever stop in Arkansas with an 8 p.m. show Tuesday, Oct. 19, at Alltel Arena. Tickets are $56.25, $46.25 and $26.75, and are available through all Ticketmaster outlets (975-7575) or at the arena box office (975-9000). "Feels Like Home," which sold over 1 million copies in its first week of release and stayed atop the Billboard charts for six consecutive weeks, has been certified quadruple platinum. Besides her natural, beautiful, straightforward singing voice, Jones is an accomplished talent on keyboards. She and her Handsome Band — bassist and Jones’ songwriting partner Lee Alexander, drummer Andrew Borger, guitarist Adam Levy, guitarist Robbie McIntosh and backing vocalist Daru Oda — are on the road through November in the longest tour in her short career.

  • Rapert compares Bill Clinton to Orval Faubus

    Sen. Jason Rapert (R-Conway)  was on "Capitol View" on KARK, Channel 4, this morning, and among other things that will likely inspire you to yell at your computer screen, he said he expects someone in the legislature to file a bill to do ... something about changing the name of the Bill and Hillary Clinton National Airport.
  • Fake news

    So fed up was young Edgar Welch of Salisbury, N.C., that Hillary Clinton was getting away with running a child-sex ring that he grabbed a couple of guns last Sunday, drove 360 miles to the Comet Ping Pong pizzeria in Washington, D.C., where Clinton was supposed to be holding the kids as sex slaves, and fired his AR-15 into the floor to clear the joint of pizza cravers and conduct his own investigation of the pedophilia syndicate of the former first lady, U.S. senator and secretary of state.
  • Reality TV prez

    There is almost nothing real about "reality TV." All but the dullest viewers understand that the dramatic twists and turns on shows like "The Bachelor" or "Celebrity Apprentice" are scripted in advance. More or less like professional wrestling, Donald Trump's previous claim to fame.
