Jesse Harris largely pays the bills playing guitar for Norah Jones, but he’s also an accomplished solo artist in his own right. This past August, the New York singer-songwriter gave us Through the Night, which PopMatters’ Jennifer Cooke described as “introspective, jazzy pop, but the through-line in all of his work seems to be a pared-down, unfussy approach to music that clearly comes from the heart.” Today, we offer an exclusive download from the album, the über mellow “It’s a Long Way Just to Say Hello”, with the lovely Brazilian jazz touches.
