Caramel and Coffee and Whipped Cream…Featuring Norah Jones

Filed Under: Reviews/Giveaways, Tech/Videos/Video Games

Back in 2002 I sat in my car outside of Quiznos. I was on my break and the sun had just gone down. It was almost time for me to get off work anyway and I figured I had earned a quick nap. The seat was on it’s way to a fully reclined position when this voice came on NPR and captivated me.

Caramel and coffee and whipped cream and sex.

They played Come Away With Me – it was the first time I had heard the song – and I couldn’t get enough of it or that voice.

Eight years later, Norah Jones has released a new album – …Featuring Norah Jones. Available on CD, vinyl/LP, downloadable in MP3 format, you’ll be surprised by the different styles and the range of artists tapped for this project.

As soon as I got the CD in from One2One Network and got it popped in my laptop, I started making a list of my favorite songs from the album and by the time I was done, I had listed 14 of the 18 songs. And I like the four I didn’t list…they just weren’t my favorites.

Lots of jazz in this record, lots of soul, a dash of country and just the right amount of funk. Though I can’t listen to …Featuring Norah Jones everyday – it’s a “mood” record for me – once a week isn’t out of the ordinary.

The impressive assortment of couplings:

  • Love Me – The Little Willies
  • Virginia Moon – Foo Fighters featuring Norah Jones
  • Turn Them – Sean Bones featuring Norah Jones
  • Baby It’s Cold Outside – Willie Nelson featuring Norah Jones
  • Bull Rider – Norah Jones and Sasha Dobson
  • Ruler Of My Heart – Dirty Dozen Brass Band featuring Norah Jones
  • The Best Part – El Madmo
  • Take Off Your Cool – Outkast featuring Norah Jones
  • Life Is Better – Q-Tip featuring Norah Jones
  • Soon The New Day – Talib Kweli featuring Norah Jones
  • Little Lou, Prophet Jack, Ugly John – Belle & Sebastian featuring Norah Jones
  • Here We Go Again – Ray Charles featuring Norah Jones
  • Loretta – Norah Jones featuring Gillian Welch and David Rawlings
  • Dear John – Ryan Adams featuring Norah Jones
  • Creepin’ In – Norah Jones featuring Dolly Parton
  • Court & Spark – Herbie Hancock featuring Norah Jones
  • More Than This – Charlie Hunter featuring Norah Jones
  • Blue Bayou – Norah Jones featuring M. Ward

It doesn’t look like it but I tried culling the list down.
