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.

  • Review: Postmodern Jukebox at Clear Channel Metroplex

    The band’s shows cover most of the songs that have either been Youtube viewing sensations or are already album classics with that PMJ touch, such as Taylor Swift’s “Shake, Shake, Shake” and Radiohead’s “Creep.” Consider us blown away though by the show’s main set concluding number of The Postal Service/Ben Gibbard-penned “Such Great Heights” done as if by the Jackson 5 in an “I Want You Back” styling.

  • Review: Boston at Verizon Arena

    As it was, nobody left the arena and into a suddenly chilly April night saying, “I wished they’d played [song name].” Boston played it all, whether you wanted it or not.
