Puss N' Boots, No Fools, No Fun, feature CD, 7/25
While she’s released five studio albums, sold 40 million albums and won 9 Grammys, Norah Jones can’t seem to get enough of changing things up. By our count, this is the 100th recording project with which she’s been involved in this short century, so it’s safe to say she’s a serial collaborator. And she kills ‘em all.
Puss N Boots is no different: Ms. Jones combining forces with pals Sasha Dobson - a fixture on the NYC singer songwriter scene and a frequent NoJo cohort - and Catherine Popper - a noted bass player who’s played with Ryan Adams, Jack White and Grace Potter for a fun-filled female trio.
Their album No Fools, No Fun is a combo of classic country tunes (Johnny Cash, George Jones covers) and roots rock pearls (Neil Young, The Band) with more recent alt-country faves (Wilco, Jeb Loy Nichols) and original songs from each of the members that all simmers together right nice for a proper musical stew.
KSUT will play it in its entirety, Friday 7/25, at noon. Don't miss our weekly trivia contest and your chance to win free lunch at Zia Taqueria at 12:30.
