Format: SACD / CD Hybrid
Rickie Lee Jones
(SACD Hybrid/ Stereo/ DSD)
From the moment she first appeared on Saturday Night Live in 1979, Rickie Lee Jones has challenged her listeners and the establishment with an absorbing musical vision that defies border and classification. Neither punk nor pop, she tottered on a thread of her own device, jazz - the old musical kind - and R&B, the Motown thread that permeates her work. Her self-titled debut album, released in '79 by Warner Bros., was a multi-million selling hit. Jones secured five GRAMMYÂ® Award nominations, and won Best New Artist in 1980. Traffic from Paradise, released in 1993, features contributions from Leo Kottke, David Hidalgo and Jim Keltner, among others.
