Product Description

Product Description

EMI's Blue Note Records release ...Featuring, a star-studded collection of the multi-platinum selling, multi-Grammy Award winning singer Norah Jones's musical collaborations from the past decade. The 18 songs on the album include duets with such legends as Ray Charles, Willie Nelson, and Dolly Parton, and with 21st Century icons from OutKast to the Foo Fighters.

The tracks on ...Featuring span her entire career, from one of her earliest recording sessions (a version of Roxy Music's "More Than This" with guitarist Charlie Hunter in 2001) to her most recent performance, a song called "Little Lou, Ugly Jack, Prophet John" that she cut with Belle and Sebastian, which will also appear on their new album. The result serves as a kind of parallel history to her own four albums, which have sold over 40 million copies worldwide.

These collaborations reveal Jones's astonishing musical versatility, from jazz to country, hip-hop to rock. Three of the songs on ...Featuring originally appeared on records that won Grammy awards for Album of the Year (Ray Charles' Genius Loves Company, Herbie Hancock's River: The Joni Letters, and OutKast's Speakerboxxx/The Love Below), and several others were also nominated for Grammys.

The album also includes recordings by some of Jones's own bands and side projects (The Little Willies and El Madmo), and performances with artists that she's toured with including M. Ward, Sasha Dobson, and Gillian Welch and David Rawlings. Songs on ...Featuring range from classics recorded by Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Joni Mitchell, and Roy Orbison to new material by such wide-ranging innovators as Ryan Adams and Q-Tip.

BBC Review

A raft of dinner party albums from Norah Jones has been irreversibly with us throughout the last decade and, as much as her vocal prowess has impressed, the inevitable impression is of lightness, insubstantiality. To observers who don't have dinner parties, she is borderline tawdry, saccharine and marooned between jazz acceptance and the infested waters of easy listening. What may have escaped said observers, though, is that on occasion she has been a part of some genuinely interesting collaborations, which is where this surprisingly varied collection of duets comes in. But be warned – the quality is as variable as the cast.

At its worst, the collection feels predictable. Virginia Moon, a duet with Foo Fighters, can’t go down as Jones’ fault, fortunately – blame lies squarely with Dave Grohl, who leaves nothing for Jones to do, a mere backing vocalist on an under-written and sickly ballad. You can almost hear Grohl’s eyebrows arching in a tasteful wince. Similarly, Willie Nelson and Jones’ take on Baby It’s Cold Outside is deeply unattractive, and no amount of plinking piano can save it from being a complete turn-off.

Peppered across the record are uninspiring jazzy ballads, what you might call ‘stock’ for Jones. However, as we’ve established, there are some super surprises for those who might not have gotten past Come Away with Me. Take Off Your Cool is a blissfully meandering acoustic work that brilliantly pits Jones against Andre 3000 of OutKast, a luxurious song that sounds haunting when removed from the context of the latter’s The Love Below record.

Furthermore, the superb pairing of Jones with Belle and Sebastian yields the strongest result on the whole record. Little Lou, Ugly Jack, Prophet John is a proper, adult pop song that shows Jones having a ball with lines like "can I see what’s underneath your bed", and "can I stay until the milkman’s working". The virtue has to lie mostly with the Scottish legends, but Jones brings such depth to the recording that it seems impossible to imagine it without her.

It’s fair to say that for every misstep there’s an unexpectedly winning duet, but not enough of Jones’ maturity is brought to the fore. There’s too much inoffensive filler that doesn’t do her justice, and it’s indisputable that it would’ve been a stronger release had it been pruned of several songs.

As the two previous reviews have said this is an excellent album. A wide range of musical styles as you would expect given the contributing artists with Norah Jones superb vocals providing a common thread. Somehow she is able to adapt to working with all her co-performers while still bringing something unique. Listening to her performances on "Life is Better" with Q-Tip to "Creepin' In" with Dolly Parton, R&B diva on one hand, Nashville country gal on the other, shows just how wide her range is. Choosing favourites off the album is difficult, "Soon the New Day" with Talib Kweli, "Little Lou, Ugly Jack, Prophet John" with Belle and Sebastian, and "Dear John" with Ryan Adams are all great. To single out one track then for me "Court and Spark" with Herbie Hancock is the pinnacle of the album. A difficult song that between them Norah and Herbie make their own. The interplay between vocals and jazz lines is both haunting and melodic, as close to perfection as I have heard in a long time.

If you have enjoyed Norah Jones earlier releases then buy the album, you certainly won't regret it. There are no bad tracks just some that are merely good in comparison to the gems.

Format: Audio CD
As daughter of the famed Indian sitarist and world fusion exponent, Ravi Shankar, it is not surprising that on this album of eighteen tracks Norah Jones seems comfortable with such an eclectic number of styles. From jazz, r & b, blues, gospel and reggae to country, rap, neo traditional folk and New Orleans brass, she contains them all within her grasp.

What perhaps is surprising is the queue of musical icons who wanted her to "feature" in their own recordings including Ray Charles, Willie Nelson and Herbie Hancock. When she's not performing solo or collaborating with others she fronts the jazz inflected country rock band The Little Willies and the album kicks off with their gutsy version of the Presley classic, "Love Me".

Her jazz credentials are impeccably demonstrated by the Joni Mitchell composition "Court And Spark", with Herbie Hancock, and "More Than This" with guitarist, Charlie Hunter - exquisite, laid back jazz. Then there is a perfect rendering of "Ruler Of My Heart with the New Orleans Dirty Dozen Brass Band and a country two step in close harmony with Dolly Parton.

Then, of course, the two block buster collaborations: "Here We Go Again" with Ray Charles and "Baby It's Cold Outside" with Willie Nelson, and Norah completely at ease with these two giants of the American Music Industry.

The essence of this recording is Norah's complete ability to empathise with many styles of music and even to impose her own style in sympathy with them. There is pop flavoured reggae with Sean Bones, alt country with Ryan Adams, a tricky duet with country roots artist Gillian Welch and a track with the rapper Talib Kweli. While rap may not be your music of choice, Norah manages to invest "Soon The New Day" with mainstream appeal.

I'm not knowledgeable about all the other artists featured in this album, or Norah's background musically. However, I am an avid music listener, and in the week since I downloaded this album, I have hardly stopped listening to it! It is so relaxing, but at the same time it is interesting, and every new track takes a new turn, and brings a smile.
A very worthwhile addition to anyone's music collection.

Norah at her usual brilliant best. An excellent collaboration with well known artists in this compilation. A variation from her usual material but very well produced....Featuring

This is an interesting collection of collaborations and duets spanning a 10 year period. whilst it doesn't have the overall coherence of purely a Norah Jones albums ( it couldn't have given the wide range of artists and styles, as well as the 10 year period), it is still great music. I particularly enjoyed the collaborations with Herbie Hancock, Belle and Sebastian, and Ryan Adams.

Very enjoyable, and a good addition to any music collection

...Featuring.

Norah Jones.

That just about says it. This is an incredible album featuring a remarkable woman. 18 Tracks collaborating with others. Norah's timeless voice, subtlety and intuitiveness. Simply put, her star is vastly underrated and Norah is unfortunately far too ignored by the general public. More fool them. If you are here reading this and am contemplating getting this...don't contemplate no more. Norah's incredible voice is by far more than enough to get this and I will not go into the plethora of other reasons. Simply put if I could I would be clicking the stars until my fingers bleed. Love is inadequate...this album makes up a part of the soundtrack of my life, I have owned this since the first week or so of its release and will never want to be parted from it. In fact after that DID happen I got a second copy!

Do yourself a favour, get this album. And if you don't know who Norah Jones is this will introduce you to a TRUE singer/songwriter and musician
