A Little Yule Cheer, Day 10: Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas by Nora Jones

My favorite secular Christmas is song is Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas. And, one of my all-time favorite musicians is Nora Jones. I wish I had the laid back ease at the piano that she does. And her voice! – what I wouldn’t give to be able sing like her. Last Christmas, Nora posted a casual video singing Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas and it is, in my humble opinion, a perfect interpretation of the song.

Nora has a new Christmas album out this year and it’s drenched in her signature jazzy/bluesy/folksy style. To promote the album, she did a live mini concert on Youtube from the top of the Empire State Building yesterday evening. If you have a few spare minutes, take the time to watch it. (The concert starts around 4:25). Nora is a pleasure to watch and her music will fill you with holiday cheer.
