Norah Jones captured hearts all over the world with her critically acclaimed album, Come Away With Me, in 2002. Five Grammys and three albums later, she is back with a new album - ...Featuring.
From the album:Recorded from 2001 to 2010, the cameos, duets and collaborations on this compilation span the musical spectrum and show Norah Jones to be one of the decade's most diverse musical connectors.
As a big fan myself, I was pleased to be asked to review ...Featuring. It's already become a nap time favorite at my house. The baby is snoozing, and Norah's smooth, velvety voice comes on to help relieve me of the stresses of the day.
At first glance at the album, I was a little surprised at what my eyes were seeing. Outkast? Willie Nelson? Foo Fighters? Surely all of these names couldn't be on the same album with the lovely and talented Norah Jones. Just one listen though, and I was sold. This woman has an amazing vocal presence and she just fits into each collaboration so well. Any true music lover will appreciate ...Featuring, from its jazz roots, to its dabbles in country and hip hop.
