Super Sunday Reviews--…Featuring Norah Jones album review

...Featuring is a star-studded collection of Norah Jones' collaborations spanning her entire career. The result serves as a kind of parallel history to her four albums, which have sold over 40 million copies worldwide.

"A lot of the people on this record are people I've worshiped since I was a kid, and some of them are younger and more my contemporaries," says Norah. "Even though the musicians are so varied, the vibe of the songs makes sense when we put them all together."

My Review
The back of the CD case reads: “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 connections.”

Wow! Is this an under statement in my mind as I listened to the CD. There are so many genres of music on this cd from country to rock to jazz to rap and more!

If you enjoy a variety of music, you will want to add this CD to your collection. One CD about covers it all.

As a family we had fun listening to the album. Some of us enjoy country, some jazz, some rap…some a little bit of it all. My 2 favorite songs on the album are tracks 9 and 10–Life is Better (Q-Tip featuring Norah Jones) and Soon the New Day (Talib Kweli featuring Norah Jones)

Others you will find her singing with are Charlie Hunter, Dolly Parton, Foo Fighters, Willie Nelson and more. ***See the complete track list below***
