A generous, well-oiled - though incomplete - sampling of Norah Jones' non-album collaborations with her colleagues, "Featuring Norah Jones" is an excellent compilation of wonderful work from the past decade. For fans of Jones who did not realize the great frequency with which she works as a guest and session musician - or lacked the wherewithal to hunt each individual track down - this disc is ideal.

There is quite a diverse array of artists on the disc - from Talib Kwali to Dolly Parton to Outkast - which might lead some to worry that "Featuring Norah Jones" sounds like a bunch of songs thrown together disjointedly. Fortunately, the tracks are sequenced in a way that not only feels natural, ideal for straight-through play, but that highlights Jones' versatility. She is an intriguing, deceivingly simple talent, and a fascinating common denominator.

A few tracks actually predate her "Come Away With Me" success, including the best track here - and still one of the best Jones has ever recorded - "More Than This," a collaboration with the exquisitely talented jazz musician Charlie Hunter from his 2001 release "Songs from the Analog Playground." The Roxy Music cover is blissful, elegant and everlasting in its arrangement, continuing to sound fresh, and Jones' emphatic, less-is-more vocal approach is instantly memorable. It is a track to savor.

The Grammy-winning "Here We Go Again" with the late Ray Charles is a slinky, R&B-flavored treat, even though it could have garnered a Grammy no matter how they arranged it. Tracks with Herbie Hancock and the Foo Fighters are also easy on the ears.

I dont know if I am unusual or not, but when Im listening to new music, if the song doesnt catch my ear or pique my interest within the first 30 seconds, then the next track gets played. I dont know that's just me. And, I've always thought that most albums only had about 4-5 decent songs on them and the rest were just fillers. Well, when it comes to this album, I was proved wrong on both of accounts. There were just a handful of songs (out of 18) that just didnt do anything for me within the first 30 seconds and by far most of them are worth listening to. I especially enjoyed her songs with Ray Charles, Dolly Parton and Willie Nelson, but then again I'm an old school kind of guy. This is an album of duets sung throughout her career over the past 10 years. Some of these duets, particularly Love Me with The Little Willies, leaves you wishing they would cut an entire album together. Other duets, leave you just asking `Why?'.
I've been a fan of Norah for a long time, enjoying her unique voice and comittment to pure music and voice. These aren't just leftovers from her past albums or merely Starbuck songs you gently brush away as you grab your mocha. These are glimpses into Norah's music mind and her diverse ability to relate to other genre's thru her music.

This cd has a few songs that I personally like. 'Bull Rider', 'Loretta', and 'Creepin' In' are all great songs if you enjoy older country. I'm a fan of her duets, but when she sings in general on a few of these songs, it's lacking individuality. They all start to mash together and it sounds too familiar. I also really liked that she changed it up and recorded songs with a few hip hop artists. 'Take off your Cool' and 'Life is Better' are both surprisingly good. Her voice sounds more soulful backing the hip hop tracks. There are some songs on here I thought I would like considering I'm a fan of the artist, but they fell short for me.

The title of the album is "Featuring Norah Jones"...that pretty much gives it away that she's not going to be the main artist on ANY of the songs. She's a FEATURING artist on someone else's song. I'm not sure why a lot of people were surprised by that. I think it's pretty interesting to see artists cross genres and experiment with different kinds of music. It also exposes you to different artists you may have never come across otherwise *shrug*.

It was amazing to me to see just how many people Norah Jones has sang with, and of all genres too. Most of the songs are too slow for listening too while driving in the car, but perfect for a quiet evening at home with my husband.I really liked listening to Dear John and Virginia Moon. I would consider this an album for a romantic evening and look forward to sharing it with my husband.

This is my first Norah Jones CD. I've heard some of her solo stuff, but never bought any of it. Then I heard this CD playing in a local coffee shop, I originally thought they had multiple CD's on shuffle, and asked to see what it was.

It's a nearly perfect background mix for the holidays. But once you really get into it, you realize how much depth is in the mix. Great song selection, for some of the duets, you have to look at the liner notes to know who is singing on it, there's some really different musical styles for who's on it.

Obviously this is a CD for fans of eclectic vocal mixes, since it crosses a lot of different artists and styles. But, for my money, it does it all very well. Great artists, great songs, great mixing. Doesn't need a lot of listens to get into, and random songs from this CD fit well into a a shuffle mix.
