Rickie Lee Jones

Rickie Lee Jones is that rare musician who has transcended the singer/songwriter mantle by incorporating different radio genres from the get-go and she continues that tradition on her forthcoming album Kicks, her newest collection of songs from the great American songbook. The album spans two decades (50s-70s) of pop, rock and jazz, presenting her unique and sophisticated interpretations of these songs.

It is fitting that one of the American treasures of songwriters should be comfortable with this diverse collection of the great songwriters of the 20th century - she is one of them. On Kicks, she brings emotion to sleeper album tracks like ‘My Fathers Gun’ and her tongue-in-cheek humor to songs like ‘Houston’.

Kicks was created entirely in New Orleans, using local musicians, mixers and studios. Produced by Rickie Lee Jones with her band-mate, vibraphonist Mike Dillion, it features 10 songs of a highly infectious nature. Check out ‘Nagasaki’, her traditional jazz offering of tight three-part harmonies, and ‘Bad Company’, where Jones cuts loose on electric guitar.
