…Featuring Norah Jones {Friday Favorites}

The music buzz this week has definitely been the world of Country Music with the Country Music Awards taking place this past Wednesday in Nashville. So, it only seems appropriate that my Friday Favorite this week is Norah Jones’ latest album …Featuring!

Featuring Norah Jones

Ok, so I wouldn’t necessarily classify Norah Jones as Country Music (I think she’s officially categorized as pop contemporary or easy listening) but she has teamed up with some of the country music “greats” on Featuring… — Willie Nelson and Dolly Parton. But that’s not why I’m loving this album. Well, it’s not the only reason at least. …Featuring also, umm, features cameos, collaborations, and duets with other fabulous artists like OutKast, Foo Fighters, and Ray Charles.

This 18 song album certainly shows Norah’s amazing musical versatility as she enters the worlds of jazz, country, hip-hop, and rock!

I was so excited to see some of my favorite songs on her latest album release, including Baby It’s Cold Outside, Creepin’ In, and Blue Bayou. I absolutely love Norah Jones’ voice and musical style but am somewhat surprised at how much I am enjoying the songs on Featuring… where she’s teamed up with some seemingly unlikely artists. I mean, I wouldn’t have necessarily put Norah Jones and OutKast together in a studio. But it works! And it’s fabulous!!!

I have been enjoying the album this week both during my “writing” time and as I travel to LA. There is just something about Norah Jones and her music that seems to relax me! And with the Holidays right on our heels, don’t you think you could use a little relaxation?

So, whether you are already a Norah Jones fan or are just looking for some great new music to get you through those long winter months, I would definitely recommend …Featuring!
