I like this duet album from Norah Jones.

I like most of the tracks on this disc. My favorite is the bossa nova sounding duet with the Foo Fighters entitled "Virginia Moon". This song is very pretty. "Court And Spark" is my other favorite. Herbie Hancock's piano playing is superb. Another gem is the track "More Than This". This track is very soothing. Norah has a new band called El Madmo. The tune "The Hardest Part" has a seductive tone to it that I love. "Baby It's Cold Outside" has a playful quality to it. Norah sounds great singing with Willie Nelson here. Sean Bones is a new comer to me. He duets with Norah on the tune "Turn Them". This song is pleasant to listen to. It puts me in a good mood. Norah sings a few country songs. My favorite country tune is Loretta". This song has excellent acoustic guitar playing. "Bull Rider" and "Creepin In" are two upbeat country tunes that I like. "Little Lou, Prophet John and Ugly John" is an unusual song title, but this is such a sweet song. I love the sound of "Ruler Of My Heart" The Dirty Dozen Brass Band accompany Norah so well with their instruments. "Blue Bayou" is a classic song, but the tempo here is too slow for my tastes. "Life Is Better" is a track that I do not care for. This hip hop song does not suit Norah's voice. Overall though, this is enjoyable music.

Wow....Foo Fighters, Herbie Hancock, and Willie Nelson on the same album? I LOVE that song "Life is Better" with Q-Tip, I think she adds a perfect balance to Tip and the song is just chill and speaks of love. I'm definitely going to have to check this one out, thanks!
