Norah Jones won 8 Grammy Awards for her debut album!
As the daughter of The Beatles’ musical mentor Ravi Shankar, Norah’s destiny might seem written in the stars when she at the age of 23 released her incredibly successful album Come Away With Me on the legendary label Blue Note.
Norah’s debut was produced by Arif Mardin, who with his vast experience managed to capture the rich voice and intimate sound of Norah’s music very well indeed. Come Away With Me won 8 Grammy Awards.
In 2005, the album received Diamond status as it reached 10 million sales.
Since then, the debut album has sold over 27 million copies, making it the most successful jazz album of all time, beating Miles Davis Kind Of Blue to the thrown.
