Watch: Norah Jones Covers George Harrison on ‘Conan’

Norah Jones concluded Conan O’Brien’s “George Harrison Week” with Thursday night’s performance of “Behind That Locked Door,” off Harrison’s 1970 album All Things Must Pass. Jones, the daughter of sitar legend Ravi Shankar and nine-time Grammy winner, added her own personal style to the iconic song- mixing jazz and country, in her usual form. Jones’ vocals were crisp, unique, and breathtaking in a dazzling homage to the musical icon.

The previous night, Conan featured a performance and interview with George Harrison’s son Dhani. He honored his father by playing Let It Down” and“Ballad Of Sir Frankie Crisp (Let It Roll),” both also from All Things Must Pass (check it out here.) Beck also performed a cover of “Wah-Wah” on Tuesday (check it out here.) The celebration of Harrison’s life will continue on Hollywood’s Fonda Theater stage with an all-star tribute dubbed ‘George Fest.’ Norah Jones and Dhani Harrison will be performing, in addition to Brandon Flowers & Mark Stoermer of The Killers, Ann Wilson of Heart, Wayne Coyne and Steven Drozd of the Flaming Lips, Britt Daniel of Spoon, “Weird Al” Yankovic, Cold War Kids, Brian Bell of Weezer, Big Black Delta, Ryan Miller of Guster, and surprise guests.
