Puss N Boots

Media Title

Incredibly, its been 12 whole years since we first heard Norah Jones’ breathy croons on “Don’t Know Why,” the smash single off her 2002 debut Come Away With Me. The Denton, Texas native has since amassed nine Grammy Awards and sold over 50 million records across the globe. She’s a generational talent, having blended cues from jazz, pop, soul and country into her own unique signature sound.

While certainly gifted enough to make records fly off the shelves and sell out arena tours on her own, Jones has never shied away from collaboration. Last year, she released Foreverly, a duet album with Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong, which re-imagined the 1958 classic Songs Our Daddy Taught Us by the Everly Brothers. Now, Jones has thrown herself full-on into Puss N Boots, her all-female alt-country side project.

Kicking around since 2008, Puss N Boots was originally an exclusively live-show collab for Jones. Together with jazz singer-songwriter Sasha Dobson and bassist Catherine Popper, they’ve taken their act into the studio, resulting in their first full-length PNB album, No Fools, No Fun, which dropped on Tuesday. It features five original jams from this supergroup of gals, as well as seven cover versions. Jones, Dobson and Popper don’t pigeonhole themselves though; the record includes their takes on diverse tunes from artists like Johnny Cash, Neil Young and Wilco. They continue their headlining tour with a toe-tapping jam at the TLA tonight. // DANIEL GELB
