See what the critics are saying about Day Breaks:

“«««« A marvelous consolidation, floating buoyantly between past tradition and her own unique present.”—Rolling Stone


“«««« Small-hours jazz perfection… her masterpiece to date… inspired and breathtaking…”—MOJO


“«««« Day Breaks is both a return to roots and a triumphant showcase of stylistic diversity.”—DownBeat


“quietly triumphant”—JazzTimes


“an eclectic triumph”—People Magazine


“There's fantastic openness to this music. No matter what the groove is, you can hear everyone involved treading lightly, seeking nuance, using small gestures to enhance the spells cast by this uncommonly sultry voice. In 2002, Norah Jones invited listeners to come away with her. This album sounds like one of the places she always wanted to visit.”—NPR All Things Considered

 “Jones found a sensual new texture for her voice. There’s more smoke in her tone and her vibrato lingers longer, melting into her dexterous keyboard work... The original compositions prove equal to the covers... Still, it’s the relationship between Jones’ voice and her piano that impresses most. Not since her entrancing debut has she sounded this engaged.”—Entertainment Weekly “After 15 years as a signed artist with more than 50 million records sold—Jones doesn’t need to adhere to industry pressures to remain relevant... Armed with that voice the Texas native has proven she can sing anything, and sound natural doing so, no matter where the road has taken her.”—Pitchfork


“While ‘Come Away With Me’ is the work of an undeniable talent, ‘Day Breaks’ is the work of a master.”—Newsday


“Day Breaks is the album many of Jones’ fans have been waiting for”—San Francisco Chronicle


“Spellbinding… Jones returns to her sweet spot… sustained intimacy and sophistication.”—UNCUT


“Day Breaks sees the singer and pianist returning to her jazz roots, but with a new confidence that’s got her bending genres and belting out some of her best vocal performances to date.”—BUST


“Jones comes from a place of confidence on Day Breaks, happy to demonstrate everything she's learned over the years... there's a strong, elastic jazz undercurrent to Day Breaks that means this record breathes more than her debut. Such a sense of quiet adventure gives the record depth, but what gives it resonance are the exquisitely sculpted songs. Jones' originals feel as elegant as time-honored standards, and all her covers feel fresh... a satisfying testament to her ever-evolving musicianship.”—AllMusic


“Jones sounds best when incorporating jazz flourishes into her own milieu... Her voice has always been rich and captivating, and here she puts the focus squarely on that, making sure her experimentation comes to support it. The result feels more confident, Jones once again the alluring vocalist and slick, skillful pianist that first made her a household name.”—Consequence of Sound


“This is a more intense, more aggressive Norah Jones than we have ever seen, and it's something to behold. The new record is tinged with a sweet bitterness in the vein of Billie Holiday or Rumer. A welcome return to jazz music after successful experiments with indie pop and rock... Jones has grown exponentially from her foray into different genres, and this record shows the fruit of her labors.”—Popdust


“one of music’s special treasures”—Mashable

Day Breaks is a remarkable new album that finds Norah returning to the piano and her jazz roots while also proving her to be this era’s quintessential American artist, the purveyor of an unmistakably unique sound that weaves together the threads of several bedrock styles of American music: country, folk, rock, soul, jazz. Day Breaks is a kindred spirit to Come Away With Me, though it is unquestionably the work of a mature artist who has lived life and grown immensely in her craft. The album features jazz luminaries including her Blue Note label mates saxophonist Wayne Shorter, organist Dr. Lonnie Smith, and drummer Brian Blade on a 12-song set that presents 9 new originals alongside covers of songs by Horace Silver, Duke Ellington and Neil Young.
