I was recently offered the opportunity by One2One Network to review “…Featuring Norah Jones”.

One2One Network Members are an exclusive group of socially-active women, aged 21-70+, who love to be the first to find out about cool new products and services, get fun freebies, connect with other like-minded women, and share our ‘finds’ with our friends, family and co-workers!  Whether it’s discovering a new product, book, music, film, DVD, TV show, live event or useful service, we are the product testers, tastemakers and ‘go-to-girls’ who actively generate word-of-mouth ripples that affect our social circles. We are busy women but we don’t mind squeezing in a little time for fun projects like the ones One2One Network has to offer because we get to choose which projects we get involved with and we can do them on our own time schedule.” ~One2One Network

I received “…Featuring Norah Jones” within a few days of signing up to review the album.  The front of the compact disc sleeve is exactly as pictured above and the back of the sleeve lists the track names.

I am such a Norah Jones fan and this album reminded me why! …Featuring really revealed her musical versatility with a star-studded collection of Norah Jones‘ collaborations spanning her entire career.  The result serves as a kind of parallel history to her four albums, which have sold over 40 million copies worldwide.

You can find Norah Jones on her website, on Facebook, and on YouTube.

Here’s penny for your thoughts …

I was recently offered the opportunity by One2One Network to review One eskimO’s self-titled debut album.

One2One Network Members are an exclusive group of socially-active women, aged 21-70+, who love to be the first to find out about cool new products and services, get fun freebies, connect with other like-minded women, and share our ‘finds’ with our friends, family and co-workers!  Whether it’s discovering a new product, book, music, film, DVD, TV show, live event or useful service, we are the product testers, tastemakers and ‘go-to-girls’ who actively generate word-of-mouth ripples that affect our social circles. We are busy women but we don’t mind squeezing in a little time for fun projects like the ones One2One Network has to offer because we get to choose which projects we get involved with and we can do them on our own time schedule.” ~One2One Network

I received One eskimO’s self-titled debut album within a few days of signing up to review the album.  The front of the compact disc sleeve is exactly as pictured above and the back of the sleeve lists the track names in a fun handwriting font that perfectly matches the feel of the artwork and the music.

One eskimO’s self-titled debut album was incredible.  I really enjoy Jason Mraz, Jack Johnson, James Blunt, Dave Matthews Band, etc., and this album was reminiscent of all of these acts rolled into one fabulous group.  My favorite track, “Kandi,” just happens to the be the #1 adult alternative song right now.  You may recognize the song yourself while viewing the following video as it’s been the most played song on all adult rock radio for more than four weeks now.  This song was even featured as the last song in the season 5 finale of the television show “Bones“ on the Fox Network!

You can find One eskimO on their website, on Facebook, on YouTube, and on iTunes.  Their tour began on May 14th in Miami, Florida, and wraps up on August 14th, in Denver, Colorado.  Check out their tour schedule for a location near you!

In closing, I would recommend that you give One eskimO’s self-titled debut album a listen.  It’s a keeper.  :)
