I have really great memories of attending the wedding of two of my friends, and dancing in a beautiful ballroom at the reception to the sweet, sultry voice of Ms. Norah Jones. I find her to be the musical equivalent of a bubble bath; listening to her relaxes me and puts me in a good mood.
Norah has just released a new album, and this one is a little bit different from the norm. The album is called Featuring Norah Jones and it has 18 songs that were recorded between 2001-2010 where she is a featured voice, though not the only voice on the track.
Maybe I’m a bit more old school than I thought, but the two pieces that took my breath away were here duet with Ms. Dolly Parton (SOOOO good, you guys!), and Norah crooning away to Elvis’ Treat Me Like a Fool. I sing (er, croak) that one at the top of my lungs!
This cd has a really impressive variety of artists and music styles. I can’t say that I’m nuts about every single song, but there are MANY that I luuuuvvvee! You know Norah can rock Baby It’s Cold Outside (and she sings it with Willie Nelson!).
Buy it!: Featuring Norah Jones was released on the 16th and is a most excellent holiday gift, or something to put on your wishlist! You can buy it on Amazon for just $9.99 (totally worth it, in my opinion).
Disclosure: I received a complimentary cd for review purposes through a campaign with the One2One Network, and I’m entered to win a gift certificate for my participation. I’m under no obligation to state anything other than my honest opinion!
