Review - Norah Jones, Featuring Norah Jones Cd

I was thrilled when the One2One Network invited me to review Norah Jones' album, "Featuring Norah Jones". It will be in stores Tuesday, November 16th.

Great album. I really enjoy when today's artists do covers of older generation's songs.
...Featuring is a star-studded collection of Norah Jones' collaborations spanning her entire career. The result serves as a kind of parallel history to her four albums, which have sold over 40 million copies worldwide.

“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.”
...Featuring Track Listing:

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

She really does have a fantastic, unique voice. But there were two things that jumped out at me when I watched this trailer:

1. I thought Ray Charles was dead so that was a big surprise, and

2. Dolly Parton's face really looks incredible. She's one of the few examples of plastic surgery gone right. Now her lipstick looks sort of funky, like she did not color inside the lines, but her face looks really good.
