Norah Jones And The Handsome Band: Live In 2004 (2004)

EW's GRADE
B+

Details Release Date: Nov 16, 2004; Lead Performance: Norah Jones

She may sit atop the pop-singer heap, but Norah Jones is a laid-back country musician at heart. That spirit shines through this concert film taped in Nashville — overtly, in duet with Dolly Parton (''Creepin' In'') and in three-part harmony with David Rawlings and Gillian Welch (''Loretta''), and, more subtly, when her band lends gentle sway to classic rockers (The Band's ''Life Is a Carnival'') and her own hits (''Don't Know Why''). The minidocs seem forced, but the performances are poised.
