....Featuring Norah Jones Review


Besides selling 40 million albums and winning 9 Grammys in less than 10 years, over the years Norah Jones has collaborated with dozens and dozens of artists from across the spectrum of music. This album collects Norah's favorite collaborations from 2001-2010 into one amazing collection: legends like Ray Charles, Willie Nelson and Herbie Hancock, rock artists ranging from Foo Fighters to Ryan Adams to Belle and Sebastian, hip hop luminaries OutKast, Q-Tip and Talib Kweli. No matter the genre however, Norah's enchanting voice is the common denominator and while the partners are varied, she ends up owning every song and this album is a wonderful collection that holds together brilliantly. The album is a testament to Norah's status as one of the most in-demand and tasteful musical connectors in music.

I recently had the opportunity to review Norah Jones new album, which is released on November 16th.  What can I say but WoW!! I've probably listened to it twenty times in the past week; I haven't taken it out of my car cd player yet.  There is such variety on this album, and Norah owns every one of them.  She sings with rap stars, blues, jazz, country and more.  The whole album has that laid back bluesy feeling that just makes you feel good.  Her voice has that smokey quality that has you relaxing.  One of my favorites on the album is Baby, It's Cold Outside, but I think it's because I'm a big Willie Nelson fan and I adore that song.  But Here We Go again with Ray Charles just soothes my soul. I love this whole album!! It has great instrumentals and a superb cast of artists.  You won't want to miss the chance to pick this one up this month!!

The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.

Thank you for taking time out of your day to leave a comment. It's appreciated.
