...Featuring by Norah Jones Review

Norah Jones reminds me of Judy Garland for some reason. Probably her sultry voice and her new look on her newest album called ...Featuring. This album came out on November 16th. It combines the talents of Norah and other artists. This compilation of cameos, duets and collaborations were recorded from the past decade and shows Norah's diversity and musical spectrum. I love the songs with her and legends Ray Charles, Willie Nelson, and Dolly Parton. There are also 21st Century icons from OutKast to the Foo Fighters that she sings with. Ruler of My Heart really shows her best vocals on this album, in my opinion. I am a big fan of Dolly Parton so Creepin' In is one of my favorites from this album. It is so upbeat and fun! From jazz to country, hip-hop to rock this album has it all.
“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.”
