Blessed with one of the loveliest voices in contemporary music, Norah Jones has chalked up an impressive list of collaborators, whether it's on her own projects or as requested by others.

Although her singing style may not vary enormously, her choice of collaborator certainly does and this collection shows she is as equally at home duetting with the venerable Willie Nelson (Baby It's Cold Outside) as she is with rapper Talib Kweli (Soon the New Day).

There are not many compilation albums that find room for Foo Fighters (Virginia Moon), Belle & Sebastian (Little Lou, Prophet Jack, Ugly John) and Dolly Parton (Creepin' In), but her graceful, elegant voice adds something to each of these disparate artists.
