First, I would like to Thank One2One for giving me the opportunity to do this review. Norah does a wonderful performance on this album, with all of her cool cameos, collaborations and duets with such legends as Ray Charles, Willie Nelson, and Dolly Parton, and with 21st Century icons from OutKast to the Foo Fighters. The album spans Norah’s entire career and reveal her astonishing musical versatility, from jazz to country, hip-hop to rock.
About Norah JonesThese collaborations reveal Jones’s astonishing musical versatility, from jazz to country, hip-hop to rock. Three of the songs on …Featuring originally appeared on records that won Grammy awards for Album of the Year (Ray Charles’ Genius Loves Company, Herbie Hancock’s River: The Joni Letters, and OutKast’s Speakerboxxx/The Love Below) and several others were also nominated for Grammys.
The album also includes recordings by some of Jones’s own bands and side projects (The Little Willies and El Madmo) and performances with artists that she’s toured with including M. Ward, Sasha Dobson and Gillian Welch and David Rawlings. Songs on …Featuring range from classics recorded by Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Joni Mitchell, and Roy Orbison to new material by such wide-ranging innovators as Ryan Adams and Q-Tip.
“Norah states that a lot of the people on this record are people that she has worshiped since she was a kid and some of them are younger and more my contemporaries,” says Jones. “Even though the musicians are so varied, the vibe of the songs makes sense when we put them all together.”

I thought this album was very good! It is a little bluesy, with some good sounding jazz. Norah has a beautiful voice and I would recommend this album. This album has some great talent behind it, with Norah, the cool cameos, collaborations and duets.
