The Modern Muse of Rickie Lee Jones

I first learned of Rickie Lee Jones at a Warner\Elektra\Asylum party held at their sales office in Connecticut one evening in 1979.  When I walked in there she was on the large video screen singing this song and  I was immediately hooked on her bohemian cool.

Rickie Lee Jones’s modern muse is calling me again as I listen with a renewed sense of purpose to her auspicious body of work. I am taken with her mystical voice as it swirls thoughtful sensibilities about my head.  I have gained an appreciation for Balm in Gilead her latest studio recording (2009).

Rickie Lee Jones chose Stockholm as the location for  her live concert filming. I sense a warm energy surrounding this performance. The unique setting is the historic and regal Berns Salonger, built in 1862.  It is an impressive setting amidst massive crystal chandeliers, gilded walls, and paintings of Swedish royalty.  Live in Stockholm is available for pre-order here.
