I was surprised when I read it in her bio.

Ravi tapped that ass on some Texas white meat then he skipped town and would visit while on tour.

The original link is not working so click on www.allmusic.com choose artist and type Norah Jones in the box to read her bio.

Thank God for that huh or Norah would have never seen the light of day ; )

Ravi's old so we're talking he was like 60 back then or close to it.

Sure did, but I was shocked to find out how young she is.

But I'd still hit it... twice.

Ever notice how a girl's cuteness factor just goes up a whole lot when she's really talented?

Just do a search for sitar music and you'll see his name come up. He can play that sitar pretty darn good.
