BAND OF THE WEEK: The Little Willies.

Basically, NORAH JONES can do no wrong. Her newest endeavor, the band THE LITTLE WILLIES, which includes herself, her boyfriend, and some other dudes, started out as a low-key tribute to WILLIE NELSON and ended up producing one of the best albums of the year. With bluegrass /jazz ditties like IT'S NOT YOU IT'S ME, ROLY POLY, and their version of TENNESSEE STUD, you might just want to toss your shoes off and start cuttin' a rug, but the sweeter ballads like NO PLACE TO FALL and EASY AS THE RAIN might ease you back to your easy chair. The best track of all is the whimsical LOU REED which imagines the TRANSFORMER himself as a cow-tipper.
Check out their recent appearance on the late show if you don't trust me:
