It’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas and Norah Jones Spreads Holiday Cheer with some new performances. With the help of Norah Jones, it is going to be a great holiday this year.
Norah has been doing a round of promotion for her newly released 2021 album, I Dream of Christmas. Though we would share some of the recent performances from her 12/03 appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live in addition to her rendition of the classic “White Christmas” at Rockefeller Center earlier in the month.
The album I Dream of Christmas is available on both CD and vinyl. It features both timeless holiday songs in addition to new holiday songs written by Norah. Want to learn more, read our full review of Norah Jones I Dream of Christmas.
Norah Jones Holiday Performances
The Kimmel performance features Norah on piano and the performance is one of her new holiday songs, “Christmas Calling (Jolly Jones)” from her newly released I Dream of Christmas album. Everything about the performance is gorgeous, from the setting to the lush vocals from Norah. The new song has a unique ability to sound familiar and recognizable while being a new track. It’s as easily digestible as a holiday sugar cookie and sounds wonderful.
The second performance features Norah Jones at Rockefeller Center in New York City. Again the setting and performance is spectacular and gets us ready for the bundling up in front of the fire for the holiday season. For the performance I selected, Norah does a a classic song, “White Christmas”, instead of one of her new holiday songs. This was one of the songs I was most excited to hear from the album. With the definitive Bing Crosby version from ’42, it is hard to top the classic. I was pleasantly surprised that Norah went an entire different direction and made it more up-tempo with jazz swings.
