Nora Jones Cold Cold Heart

I haven't spent a lot of time with youtube, so am always surprised to discover how much remarkable music is available there. I have to say that Nora Jones singing "Cold, Cold Heart" (click on entry link to go there) is just about the best thing I've heard or seen. I love the bass, love her light, minimal, radiant and bluesy piano playing, and think her vocal phrasing is just about perfect. Wow.
