Thanks to the one2one network, I was given the opportunity to preview the CD, ...Featuring Nora Jones.
I have been a big fan of Nora Jones' for many years. I love the sultry sound of her voice, and her ability to cover a well-known song and make it her own. I sometimes like her versions even better than the original artist's.
I like many types of music, and there are several styles featured on this CD, including, country, jazz, hip-hop, and rock. I can't say I love every single song (I'm not much of a fan of hip-hop or rap), but out of the 18 tracks, there are only a few that I won't be loading on my iPod for "keeps".
My favorite song on the CD is "More Than This", with "Here We Go Again" a very close second. Song after song, Nora Jones manages to successfully blend her voice with many different artists and music styles. She is truly a gifted and versatile singer. (I'll let you in on a little secret - I have a playlist of her songs which are perfect for setting a "romantic" mood.) I recommend you check out this CD, as well as all of Nora Jones' music, and find out for yourself how talented she is.
Visit Amazon.com to listen to samples of the CD tracks, and to purchase ...Featuring Nora Jones. It would make a great holiday gift for any music lover on your list!
