Rickie Lee Jones: Traffic From Paradise

Rickie Lee Jones: Traffic From Paradise

From the moment she first appeared in front of us 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. She rocked the culture of singer-song writerdom with her refusal to conform to the stayed and careful eloquence of the folk rock generation that came before her. 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 by Warner Bros. in March 1979, had an immediate and profound impact in the music world and the culture at large ultimately becoming a multi-million selling hit. Jones secured five Grammy Award nominations, including Best New Artist, which she won at the January 1980 ceremony. She won a second Grammy in 1989 for Best Jazz Performance for her duet with long time pal Dr. John on "Making Whoopee". "Traffic From Paradise", released in 1993, features contributions from Leo Kottke, David Hildago and Jim Keltner among others.
