The Latest Release: Pieces of Treasure
For her first ever all-jazz album, “Pieces of Treasure”, Rickie Lee Jones reunites with her life-long friend, legendary producer Russ Titelman, who produced her first two seminal albums, Rickie Lee Jones and Pirates. “This album is as much about aging as it is anything, how we love ‘til the day we die, how we may be look back a bit more,” says Jones. “We go looking for who we used to be, or to try and find the thing we held on to before the catastrophe, the heartbreak, whatever, back when we were innocent.”
“There are 10 songs here, most of them slow, with a smoky nightclub intimacy that makes it a great late-night album. […] Jones’s voice is lovely throughout, with a big range as well as personality. It’s high and youthful on a surprisingly slow, pensive Sunny Side Of The Street; deeper, more mature on Here’s That Rainy Day; and on September Song it’s both, a dash of Marianne Faithfull at the beginning and Billie Holiday later on” (Astor Morgan, MOJO). “Pieces of Treasure is something to treasure…This pirate has captured the whole chest, I’m telling you and she’s made these stories her own.” (Gary Walker, WBGO).
