One of my favorite [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Norah Jones[/lastfm] stories was an account of her waiting in the green room before a television appearance telling an interviewer that she didn’t like being identified as the daughter of Ravi Shankar (sitar master) shortly before the host of the show introduced her that way. She’s been leery of mcs ever since. Anyway, when you’ve sold about a billion albums in the first decade of the 21st century, you don’t need an introduction. Norah Jones’ sold out XRT Show in 2004 at the Chicago Theatre provides a cool but passionate cap for the ONXRT Live From the Archives Weekend Sunday night at 7:30.
[photogallerylink id=15601 align=left]The jazz-singer’s latest album Featuring Norah Jones is her answer to a greatest hits or live album: it is a compilation of her best duets and collaborations. Featuring shows off her vocals in the midst of other powerful voices like Ray Charles, Belle & Sebastian, Willie Nelson, Outkast, and the Foo Fighters to name only a few. This album is just about everything you can expect from Norah Jones plus a bit more.
First Listen: Danger Mouse, Jack White & Norah Jones Collaboration
