"Little Broken Hearts hops from the maverick caravel onto the port-bound steamer." Norah Jones - Little Broken Hearts (2012) 5.5/10 Blue Note/EMI If like me, you feel that Come Away With Me was one of those set in the stone of my musical memory albums, you’ll be quite surprise by Norah Jones’ 5th album – “Little Broken Hearts”.
