68-year-old iconoclastic songstress RICKIE LEE JONES was once
labeled The Duchess Of Coolsville by Time Magazine (in the late 70s).
The musician who fused jazz with pop/R&B/folk/ and soul with style,
verve and bravoure.
And she will return to her love for jazz again with a new album,
named PIECES OF TREASURES. The record will feature 10 jazz
classics from the Great American Songbook.
01 “Just In Time” (Jule Styne, Betty Comden, Adolph Green)
02 “There Will Never Be Another You” (Harry Warren, Mack Gordon)
03 “Nature Boy” (Eden Ahbez)
04 “One for My Baby” (Harold Arlen, Johnny Mercer)
05 “They Can’t Take That Away from Me” (George Gershwin, Ira Gershwin)
06 “All the Way” (Jimmy Van Heusen, Sammy Cahn)
07 “Here’s That Rainy Day” (Jimmy Van Heusen, Johnny Burke)
08 “September Song” (Kurt Weill, Maxwell Anderson)
09 “On the Sunny Side Of The Street” (Jimmy McHugh, Dorothy Fields)
10 “It’s All In The Game” (Charles G. Dawes, Carl Sigman)
RLJ: “This album is as much about being human, the view of surviving,
which means aging, and loving relentlessly, as it is about anything. We
love ’til the day we die, love our lives, our families, and finally ourselves.”
Sensual and sultry.
