Band in the room, dry acoustic? Grisman/Garcia/Rice, "The Pizza Tapes." Grisman/Rice, "Tone Poems." Garcia/Grisman, "Shady Grove." All recorded in Grisman's studio, all acoustic strings.

If small jazz combo's are your thing try Patricia Barber. Her voice is huskier than Norah Jones, and she is a very good pianist as well. Her disc "Modern Cool" is a good place to start.

Thanks Shoebacca. I'll look into it. It's not that I am favoring small jazz combos. It's just that those recordings seem to be the best as for as sounding like the group is in the room. Can't hardly do that with an orchestra.

I should have started this thread with "soundslike THEY are there".

A little off topic, but a superb example of something similar is Suzanne Vega. I have seen her live many times, yet wether it was in a crowd of 50 000 at a German Rock festival, or in a tiny marquee with 200 people, and every time I knew she was singing just for me. Magic.

pinkmouse,

Not off topic at all. Now if I can find a RECORDING of her that has the same magic, I will treasure it.

I stumbled across another track, Merle Hagard, "Wishin all these old Things were New".

Norah Jones, Beatles, Ravi Shankar ???

Don't let that one drop. Let's hear it!!!!

Did I win?


She is the daughter of renowned Indian sitar player Ravi Shankar and American Sue Jones.
Norah Jones was born in New York but raised by her mother near Dallas, Texas... She rarely speaks about Shankar in public; according to a 2002 article in The Guardian, "She saw her father a few times a year until she was nine, and then not until she was 18"... Ravi Shankar was a favorite colleague of The Beatles, in particular of George Harrison.

Check out Modern Cool by Patricia Barber. Phenomenal recording and killer playing. Just goes to show that CD can sound very, very good. Of course I'd love to hear this on SACD...
