An unlikely album to breakthrough to the radio-friendly mainstream, this collection of original and classic torch songs by Ravi Shankarís comely daughter is the perfect accompaniment to a relaxing evening in front of a fire. Jazzy and alluring, the appeal of Come Away with Me lies in Norah Jonesí sweet vocals and her ear for a good classic tune. By now, everyone probably has heard the radio single Donít Know Why ó by far the discís finest track ó though the rest of the set is nearly as strong. starstarstarstar
