Norah Jones- Who Knew?

So I have been lucky enough to get to review Norah Jones' new compilation album "...Featuring" and I have to say that I am mighty surprised at what I found. I have always lumped Ms. Jones into the easy listening category and I know she had a brief foray into alt. country, but man I had no clue how versatile this woman is. This new album spans her entire career and includes the majority of her collaborations over the years. There are a few easy listening tunes included but there is so much more. From true country honky-tonk to pure hip hop, this woman is covering all her bases. There is even a little holiday ditty with none other than Mr. Willie Nelson, perfect for this time of year.
For my taste I have to say that I am a true alternative girl...raised in the nineties, so my faves on this album are, "Dear John" – Ryan Adams featuring Norah Jones and "Little Lou, Prophet Jack, Ugly John" – Belle & Sebastian featuring Norah Jones. Both of these songs are so mellow and rather dreamy, just the way I like my alt. rock.

But you have to take a look at the entire album to really get a feel for everything that is offered:
