Description

Rickie Lee Jones is a 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 latest album Kicks. The album spans two decades (50s-70s) of pop, rock and jazz, presenting her unique and sophisticated interpretations of songs from the great American songbook.

Kicks was created entirely in New Orleans, using local musicians, mixers and studios. Produced by Jones with her bandmate, vibraphonist Mike Dillion, it features 10 songs of a highly infectious nature. It’s fitting that one of the treasures of American song should be comfortable with this diverse collection of the great songwriters of the 20th century – she is one amongst them. Jones brings emotion and humour to much-loved staples – rarely does a singer-songwriter inhabit other people’s work so completely, but Jones proves herself, again, as one of the most inventive and imaginative interpreters operating today.
