Norah Jones’ newest album “…Featuring” is in stores now! I happily received an advance copy to review last week and I’ve really enjoyed the mix of genres and song styles. It’s interesting to hear both Willie Nelson and Outkast on the same album, and very cool that they both complement Norah Jones’ voice in a very pleasing way. And that voice! She has a gorgeous soulful voice that I just love. This is a mellow thoughtful album, full of easy listening sound, will most likely appeal to a wide audience.
Featuring includes 18 songs that span over the past decade of Norah’s career. With hip-hop, country, rock and jazz added to the track listing this album promises to be a wonderful gift for the music lover on your gift list!

My favorite song has to be number 4: Baby It’s Cold Outside, I love that song anyway but there is just something magical about Norah Jones singing it with Willie Nelson! I just love the way it makes me smile :) I wish I could see them perform it together, I bet it is really cute! I also love Loretta (number 13) and number 14: Creepin’ In with Dolly Parton is awesome! Honestly I could find something to like about all the songs!
