    I'll second Jennifer Warnes - If 'nice' means laid back/ soulful her Leonard Cohen covers album 'famous blue raincoat' is rather good...

    You may have heard it already, but Mary J Blige - the London Sessions is reasonably recent. Great music, backup artists and what a voice. I've got it both on vinyl and cd.
