“Visions,” Norah Jones | The duty

Caressing. Sensual. Soulful. Happy return of nature. “I’ll make it easy for you”, Serine la snoraude (that’s her nickname, a bit much the key word for her mischievous nature) at the opening of this frankly smiling ninth album. The eighth, it should be remembered, shaved the daisies: Pick Me Up Off the Floor, a record released in the middle of a pandemic, was listened to as a plea, experienced as one drags oneself until the release. It’s an understatement to say that our Norah, whom we have followed and loved for 22 years, is doing better. THE riff guitar that she harnesses in Staring at the Wall is gloriously alive, the vocalizations lighter than the air of Paradise float happily, Queen of the Sea dominates the current, to the calm rhythm of rediscovered happiness. Visions, title song not without reason, it is the light that enters in the early morning. The album sparkles and shakes. Running, dancing, joining forces (with multi-instrumentalist Leon Michels, in this case), everything is to be embraced: “ That’s Life »sums up the singer.
