In the wake of her 2002 blockbuster debut, Norah Jones became an in-demand duet partner, popping up on albums from all manners of musicians. The 2010 compilation, …Featuring, helpfully rounds up 18 of these guest appearances, including a cut by the Jones-fronted country cabaret outfit the Little Willies, and what impresses is the range of collaborators and the consistency of the music. Anybody who called Norah up for a duet was clearly smitten by her way with slow-burning seduction, as they almost without fail cast her in that role for their own recordings, smoothing out rough edges or adding some sultry sophistication.

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
In the wake of her 2002 blockbuster debut, Norah Jones became an in-demand duet partner, popping up on albums from all manners of musicians. The 2010 compilation, …Featuring, helpfully rounds up 18 of these guest appearances, including a cut by the Jones-fronted country cabaret outfit the Little Willies, and what impresses is the range of collaborators and the consistency of the music. Anybody who called Norah up for a duet was clearly smitten by her way with slow-burning seduction, as they almost without fail cast her in that role for their own recordings, smoothing out rough edges or adding some sultry sophistication. This would seem like a limited specialty, but Featuring proves it's not. Jones sounds as comfortable trading verses with Willie Nelson and Ray Charles as she does acting as a counterpoint to Q-Tip and Outkast, providing alternating contrasts according to the setting; she freshens the veterans and provides a touch of timeless elegance to her modern rock peers. It may all be variations on a theme, but the sounds and songs change just enough for the music to be quietly absorbing. Better still, when these side shows are grouped together as a main attraction, they manage to sound of a piece. These may be songs that appeared on other artist's albums, but when presented as a collection, they seem to belong only to Norah Jones.

    A great variety of genres

    I am lucky enough to have recieved this Cd beofre it is available to the public. I must say I am very happy with this album. Theres a great variety of sounds, whether its a smoky jazz club feel, a nice little saloon in louisiana sound, or a cool hip hop club sound in NYC you want to hear, this CD got it all.Miss Jones voice is haunting,her voice is a one of a kind voice, she is one of the few artists in my opinion that with in milliseconds of hearing the first word in one of her songs you hvve NO doubt that its Norah Jones, not like the other cookie cutter artists out there where it could be anyone out of 5 artists, cause they all sound alike. . The artists she colaberated with are amazing as well. This is truly a wonderful CD that you will find both relaxing and dance inducing.

    Bridget's Review

    This is a really great CD. There's a little bit of everything - Rock, Hip-Hop, Country, etc. My favorites off the album are Ruler Of My Heart and Life Is Better. I've been listening to it at least once a day while surfing the net. It would make a great cleaning companion too.

    Simply Awful

    I am a big Norah Jones fan. She has a beautiful voice and a unique style BUT her voice does not always blend well with others.....this is the case in more than half the songs on this CD. Very disappointed in the CD. Half the songs were very good but the half that wasn't was VERY BAD...so bad I had to skip through them. There is such a thing as branching out TOO FAR and or stretching oneself TOO MUCH...both are appearant here.....Norah needs to stick to one style....her own style.

    Disapointing

    I purchased this album for my husband, and we were both disapointed with the surprise of the 2 rap songs. It ruined the whole album for us.
    We love the easy listening of Norah's music..can we return this CD ?

    Norah Jones sounds great

    Norah Jones shines once again. I've been a fan of hers, and this compilation shows a versatility. Her voice and style shine through while also showcasing some other familiar artists. Definitely one for the library. This has the first version of Baby It's Cold Outside that I can actually stand listening to.

    Diverse artists, great album!

    Norah Jones came out with her first album while I was in college. I loved her voice and style, so I was super excited for the opportunity to review her latest album Featuring. If the name isn't a dead giveaway, this album features a wide assortment of musical collaborations.

    "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."

    It's not every day that Dolly Parton, Outkast, and the Foo Fighters appear on the same album. Norah Jones ties it all together. Although the songs are as different as the artists themselves, they do fit together nicely. I think one of my favorites is "More Than This" by Charlie Hunter. I also liked "Court & Spark" by Herbie Hancock.

    I thought this was a thoroughly enjoyable album - perfect for a rainy afternoon with a cup of hot tea. For some reason, Norah Jones always makes me feel like I'm in a coffee house, she just has a nice laid back mellow vibe in her music.

    I received a complimentary album to facilitate my review as part of the One2One campaign. The opinions expressed are my honest thoughts of the product.

    Thoroughly enjoyable mix

    Alright so I'm a Norah Jones fan since her days of don't know why. From the collaboration list on featuring it seems like Norah has many fans in the music industry that love her soulful voice as much as I do. I was truly impressed with the list of collaborators and loved the mix created with Norah's voice along side hip hop. Who would have thought this would sound so good, but I enjoyed every song on the album and can listen to it again and again, unlike most albums out there. Thank you Norah for providing us with something different - it's like a genius playlist on one album.

    I alwys love Norah Jones but...

    I always love Norah Jones but I would have liked to hear more of her and less of others. I can appreciate a duet but I don't want it to be the whole albumn. I think this showcased her large range and that is fabulous. Overall I think it is still a good albumn to add to your collection!

    Always loved Norah Jones...

    I really liked the compilation CD, some very interesting duets (especially the one with her and Willie Nelson). I have always loved that song, perfect for Christmas! I love that she mixed it up with some of the coolest hip hop artists out there. Though I don't think that is Norah Jones' best, I liked the idea of singing with some of the greatest artists. My favorite songs are #2 "Turn Them", #11 "Little Lou, Prophet Jack, and Ugly John, and #17 "More than This". *I am a member of One2OneNetwork and I'm part of the Norah Jones review project.

    Different styles

    I received a copy of Norah's latest CD from One2One Network to review. Spanning almost a decade, Featuring Norah Jones contains collaborations with various artists.. I recognized some big names: Dolly Parton, Herbie Hancock, Willie Nelson, Outkast, and Foo Fighters. Other names weren't familiar to me: Belle and Sebastian, Gillian Welch, etc. This CD showcases Jones' style: a skillful mix of blues, folk songs, and jazz. In the mood for some blues? You'll enjoy "Love Me" or "Here We Go Again." Hosting a winter open house? Crank up "Baby It's Cold Outside" or "Life is Better." Looking for a great break up song? Add "Turn Them" or "Dear John" to your playlist. Featuring Norah Jones is a great CD for old and new fans of Norah Jones.

    A fun cd with a wide array of music

    I received a sample of this album through One2One and was pleasantly surprised at the different types of music on this album. There is everything from country, to duet, to jazz. I loved that the music was different because you could never get tired of it although I didn't care much for the country music. A great album that you could never get bored of.

    I liked this album, but it was not my favorite by Norah. I would still recommend to any Norah Jones fan.

    Loved it!

    As always, Norah Jones had released a bestseller. Love her voice. I still think her first album was her best but this one is great too. I liked that she has so many different singers on this one.

    Norah delivers once again!

    I know I've tweeted a few times and posted to Facebook how excited I am for Norah Jones latest album, .Featuring Norah Jones. I've always liked Norah Jones and absolutely adore her voice. This latest album is a star-studded collection of Norah's musical collaborations from the past decade.

    My personal favorite is Baby It's Cold Outside with Willie Nelson. The album contains 18 songs including cameos, collaborations and duets with Ray Charles, Dolly Parton, OutKast, the Foo Fighters, Herbie Hancock and so much more!

    Loved, loved LOVED this album!

    Great Compilation

    I have long been in love with the vocal stylings of Norah Jones. When I got this album, I was so excited. I was expecting songs I already knew with people doing duets with her. I was pleasantly surprised however to find that most of the songs I didn't know. I was able to get to know some new artists as well.

    I am not a fan of rap music, so there are 3 songs on the album I don't love. But, with 18 songs, I don't feel like I am cheated out at all and I will just remove those 3 from my playlist.

    This is a definite must have for anyone who likes Norah Jones. Great Holiday gift!!!

    Wonderfully refreshing album!

    I remember the first Norah Jones song I ever heard "Come Away With Me", I instantly was drawn to her soft, mellow, beautiful tone. Her music is a blend of acoustic pop with soul and jazz.

    This new album "...Featuring" is a compilation of Norah Jones' features with other artists across all musical genres. From songs with Talib Kweli to the Foo Fighters, each track has a unique sound and feel.

    Music is something that connects us, and Norah Jones' work as showcased in this album has done just that. Combining and creating new sound is what Norah Jones has been known for since the beginning, and these collaborations are something all music lovers can enjoy.

    Norah Jones.featuring Norah Jones
    This CD is Norah Jones's musical collaborations from the last 10 years. There is quite the variety, from Dolly Parton to Ryan Adams to Outkast! Most of the songs are breathy, earthy, & simple. Classic Norah. For me, there is no one song that really stands out, I do like the song Loretta-Jones featuring Gillian Welch and David Rawlings. And you REALLY need to listen to Baby Its Cold Outside with Willie Nelson! A treat for your ears!!!

    Not to Be Missed By Norah Jones Fans

    Norah Jones' distinctive voice shines on Featuring in her collaborations with diverse artists. Most tracks show off Ms. Jones' diverse talents beautifully as she seamlessly melds with artists such as The Foo Fighters on "Virginia Moon" and Sasha Dobson on "Bull Rider." A few tracks are awkward matches, like "Life Is Better" by Q Tip featuring Norah Jones, which seems to fall short of the other songs. None the less, the CD makes for excellent background music while driving, relaxing, working or at a dinner party. Ms. Jones does not disappoint with her new release.

    I received a copy of this CD from the One2One Network to review. This review was not edited nor influenced in any way.

    Highly Recommended - Great Variety!

    Wow, this new Norah Jones album "Featuring." is stunning! It is full of soul and heart. The duets are amazing and it will be your new go to album for fun and nostalgia. She is so talented and gifted. Her voice is amazing and different than the normal musician today. This collection is sincere and vibrant. There is so much variety and I was delighted. My favorite song by far is "Virginia Moon" featuring Foo Fighters. Loved hearing Ray Charles on "Here We Go Again." Duets with Dolly Parton and Willie Nelson are not to be missed either. What a collection!
