    A jazz chanteuse with a taste for pop, country, and blues at their best, Norah Jones became an overnight sensation in 2002 with the release of her album Come Away With Me, which earned both critical acclaim and blockbuster sales. In 2004, Jones was touring in support of her well-received second album, Feels Like Home, when she and her band arrived at Nashville's historic Ryman Auditorium for a special concert appearance, which was captured by a camera crew for home-video release. Norah Jones and the Handsome Band: Live in 2004 features Jones joined by guests Dolly Parton and Gillian Welch & David Rawlings, as well as former bandmates Kevin Breit and Richard Julian. Selections include "Don't Know Why," "Creepin' In," "The Prettiest Thing," and "Carnival Town."
