Iconic singer/songwriter Rickie Lee Jones, best known for her bluesy pop style and stirring performances, has recorded in various musical styles over the course of a three-decade career, including R&B, blues, pop, soul, and jazz standards.
In her recent release “Kicks,” the two-time Grammy Award-winning singer draws from these deep musical roots to celebrate an exciting new phase of creative maturity in her life.
According to Glide Magazine, the album “succeeds in introducing fresh perspectives to songs that are decades old, some of them well-worn, some of them hidden gems. In Rickie Lee Jones’ universe, the age or origin of a song is not important – it’s about what the song says, how it makes you feel, the story it tells. She is a creative stylist and has fashioned something uniquely her own from the songs of other people, which, of course, is no small feat.”
