I haven't noticed this record being hyped.  Maybe the east coast is the stronger market and that's where the marketing $$ are going?

There isn't much radio.  AAA and a lackluster showing at AC radio.

It's pretty invisible here.

Letterman, Conan, 60 Minutes...

60 Minutes isn't the usual "circuit" for a musical act with a new record out (that as you say, isn't exactly killing on radio)

Really marketing 101.  60 mins was a good idea.  Older demo show.  Different audience than Oprah.

I'm not disputing that Nora Jones might be a really nice person.  Or that she might have inherited some musical genes from her father (who did not raise her).  Or that some of her sidemen have might have some chops.  Yadda, yadda.

What should be discussed amongst music fans is the blandness of everything she has released.  It's music-lite for people who want pleasant background noise while they shop at the mall or have a coffee at Starbucks.  It's fake jazz for people who are either too old to rock or never liked the ruckus in rock, but have never cultivated any interest or educated themselves about jazz or other "serious" musical forms like classical.

Nora Jones is the ultimate sell-out.  She's smart enough to know that she's serving up bland wallpaper music to people who are utterly clueless about real art.
She's doing it strictly for the moola.  The big push (60 Minutes, etc.) is an attempt to get aging boomers off their asses and into record stores.  Nora Jones is one of the record companys' last hopes to get boomers to spend some of their cash.

I hope that made you feel better.  I'll remain comfortable in my appreciation of Norah, rock, jazz, and classical music (which I've played at a high level), and then I'll tell you to fuck off (politely, of course).

What exactly is it about people like you that leads you to believe it's a good idea to lob gross generalizations into a crowd of folks whom you know nothing about?

Whatever one thinks of the music, I applaud Norah for spearheading the return of the "real song" into a world then-populated by non-songs.

And Jesse.
