I Dream Of Christmas, Norah Jones

In the clip of Christmas Calling (Jolly Jones), she rides a bike not far from 59th Street Bridge. There is a big “mistletoe” on the handlebars. Gift ! Norah Jones, riding relaxed, walks us around in her sweet voice and a cool jazzy rhythm, with a small crowd of hilarious Santa Claus and revelers. The whole album is from the same stream of light flakes. An original song here and there, including a sweet call to a more or less sanitary remote gathering entitled It’s Only Christmas Once A Year (“Last year was so hard with all the friends I couldn’t see…”), justifies the hike, between haphazard revisits of seasonal classics. Of a little White Christmas deliciously swing to a Winter wonderland enticing on the background of pedal steel, everything is enveloping and beneficial, including the Latin sway of the rock’n’cha cha version of Run Rudolph Run, star kiss to Chuck Berry. Who needs yet another Christmas record? “Would you like to sit under my tree? Norah asks. We say yes.
