Norah Jones – Easy

“It’s only love, and oh how it feels. Feeling is easy. When I was young, you know it was real.” Beautiful melody surrounded by flavors not usually associated with Norah. Of course, this is not her album, this cut came from the album of her half-sister, Anoushka who adds special tastes of sitar and percussion. The entire album makes for a comforting Sunday afternoon in some sort of ethereal space that’s occupying my brain. I’m loving it. Shoutout for Ghost Story. Anoushka Shankar

A second Norah shout-out for another stray cut from an older album, Angels. This song, like Easy, is not typical of the songs from her solo releases.
