Norah Jones, Featuring Review

I finally got the chance to check out Norah Jones' new album, Featuring, and I really liked what I heard.  Personally, I love collaborations, but I do not like them when artists feel they have to do them to keep up with everyone else or to save their albums.  

I did not get that feeling with this album at all, even though it was entirely made up of collabs, instead I saw it for the brilliant musical collaboration that it is.  Everyone that loves something, harbors dream projects and ideas that they would love to be able to put together.  And that is exactly what Norah Jones went out and did, and I envy her-- but loved that she was able to pull it off and create the album!

The tracks on the album are:
1. Love Me – The Little Willies 
2. Virginia Moon – The Foo Fighters featuring Norah Jones
3. Turn Them – Sean Bones featuring Norah Jones
4. Baby It's Cold Outside – Willie Nelson featuring Norah Jones
5. Bull Rider – Norah Jones and Sasha Dobson
6. Ruler Of My Heart – Dirty Dozen Brass Band featuring Norah Jones
7. The Best Part – El Madmo 
8. Take Off Your Cool – OutKast featuring Norah Jones
9. Life Is Better – Q-Tip featuring Norah Jones 
10. Soon The New Day – Talib Kweli featuring Norah Jones
11. Little Lou, Prophet Jack, Ugly John – Belle & Sebastian featuring Norah Jones
12. Here We Go Again – Ray Charles featuring Norah Jones
13. Loretta – Norah Jones featuring Gillian Welch and David Rawlings
14. Dear John – Ryan Adams featuring Norah Jones
15. Creepin' In – Norah Jones featuring Dolly Parton
16. Court & Spark – Herbie Hancock featuring Norah Jones
17. More Than This – Charlie Hunter featuring Norah Jones
18. Blue Bayou – Norah Jones featuring M. Ward
