Review by Darren Moldrich | 17 January 2022

It’s a brave soul that tackles one of the all time biggest selling albums of modern music history. 

Come Away With Me, released in 2002, sold close to 27 million copies and won 8 Grammy Awards.

So to try and tribute Norah Jones’s seminal and ground breaking album from go to woe, all 14 songs, in chronological order, is either madness or a singer with a passion for one of her idols. I’m pleased to say the latter.  

Georgie Aue - “there are 5 vowels and my surname has 3”- gloriously succeeds in transporting the predominantly boomer sold out audience 20 years into the past - when the men had hair and women weren’t dying theirs.

The audience were in safe hands. Georgie and her highly accomplished band were the real deal; quality musicians at the top of their game.

Song 5 was the huge hit Come Away With Me, which really kick started the set. The first 4 songs were highly polished but the audience were somewhat subdued- perhaps they just heard they had to wear masks again.

Song 7 “Turn Me On” was probably the highlight. This was the first and unfortunately the only time the entire ensemble took the audience to the next level.

It’s a difficult process to be completely competent and polished as a musician. The entire band were note perfect. Georgie’s voice was heaven sent. As I said earlier, the audience were safe in their very competent hands- but where was the sparkle, the chutzpah?

I cannot fault the musicality of this performance but I just felt the ensemble needed to stop playing and start performing as well. In short, the performance just didn’t go to the next level- just lacking a sense of energy.

I’m sure that will come as this show was the World Premiere. Definitely worth the price of the ticket though.
