The best-selling audiophile album in history requires little introduction, but for the faithful and unfamiliar: The winner of eight Grammys, Come Away With Me stands as Norah Jones’ breakthrough triumph. One of the most-beloved sonic treasures ever released, the record remains an international smash and one of the few albums to cross over into all fields: pop, jazz, easy listening, audiophile, blues, soul, and country. And now, Jones’ mellow music is remastered on this Analogue Productions 200g LP pressing from the original source recordings by Kevin Gray at Cohearant Audio. Aurally, hits like the signature "Don’t Know Why," have never sounded clearer and more sensual. Close your eyes and you’ll swear you’re sitting in the recording studio or better still, watching Jones perform in your living room. Yes, this go-to reference disc just got better. Moreover, it is packaged in heavy cardboard stock, and includes tip-on, old-school gatefold sleeves. Come Away With Me is immaculately produced by the great Arif Mardin. Jones is joined by highly regarded jazz talent, including guitarists Adam Levy, Adam Rogers, Tony Scherr, Bill Frisell, and Kevin Breit; drummers Brian Blade, Dan Rieser, and Kenny Wolleson; organist Sam Yahel; accordionist Rob Burger; and violinist Jenny Scheinman. Her regular guitarist and bassist, Jesse Harris and Lee Alexander, respectively, play on every track and also serve as the chief songwriters. Both have a gift for melody, simple yet elegant progressions, and evocative lyrics. What else is there to say? If you own a high-end system in any price range, you owe it to yourself to own this pressing. Better grab two copies so you have an extra after you wear the first one out. You'll need it.
