Still not yet 35, Norah Jones has had a most interesting career. Daughter of sitar master Ravi Shankar, Jones was a star herself in the jazz program at Dallas's Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts (where Erykah Badu also went). After a spell at the University of North Texas, she came out of the Greenwich Village folk-jazz scene into near-instant stardom with Grammy-winning Blue Note debut Come Away With Me (2002), as low-key a blockbuster as ever was at nearly 20 million copies sold worldwide. Since then she's done two sets of old-school country in side project the Little Willies, most recently For the Good Times, around several more albums of melancholy adult-oriented pop like this year's fine Little Broken Hearts.
