UncutOct 6, 2016Jones displays a fluid keyboard touch and nuanced vocals, not unlike Diana Krall's recordings. [Nov 2016, p.31]
Oct 6, 2016A collaboration with names such as saxophonist Wayne Shorter, percussionist Brian Blade and bassist John Patitucci sees a the self-professed "jazz dropout" helm a strong project of original material, save for a sweet rendition of Duke Ellington's "Fleurette Africaine" and a bulletproof interpretation of Neil Young's "Don't Be Denied.
MagnetOct 18, 2016It's a darker, more nuanced album, and Jones, now 37, sings with more depth and soul than she did in her youth. [No. 136, p.54]
Q MagazineOct 19, 2016Warm, understated and authoritative, Day Breaks demands you lean in and listen. [Dec 2016, p.109]

A voz da NorahMais um trabalho incrível dessa mulher que já é uma forte referência do Jazz. No meu ponto de vista, esse álbum não tem erros. A voz da Norah Jones se torna um instrumento, tão bem tocado quanto os outros instrumento que tocam na mesma proporção. Todas as musicas são jazz, mas elas tem uma criatividade tão adequada e "smooth" que, acaba se tornando um álbum "comercial" pela qualidade que tem.… Expand

Day Breaks sounds more like a return to her jazz roots of the debut album. It's a beautiful record which includes 1-2 covers in which Norah nails it.
A very sweet and short album that is definitely in line with her previous efforts in terms of quality.… Expand

Not say say she can succeed in these other areas, see "creeping in" and chasing pirates, but the elements of her music that made come away with mr so special was the subtlely, almost like someone thinking out loud--not really trying to convince the listener, just suggestions. Jazz is the prefect sounds for this kind of song writer. And her voice is kinda like the light in a cloud of smoke.
The tone is set up perfectly in the intro, and the producer for the most part hold that tone throughout and gets creative with it here and there. In fact without Jones voice this would be a pretty good Jazz album. The last track kinda highlight the skillful production.
This free Jazz production puts allot of pressure on the song writing however, and Jone and her writers do a good job for the most part. Carry on, dont be denied, and others, are vintage Jones. On a few track the lyrics are a little sleepy and or a little overly sentimental, or shallow even but these are a few and far between. Overall great album. I think her second best work and best since Come away.
I really want her to see if she can continue in this free jazz direction. There are so many great jazz musicians out there and with her voice, just wow--the potential… Expand
