Produktinformationen "Jones, Rickie Lee - Kicks (LP)"
Die zweifache Grammy-Preisträgerin, die US-amerikanische Singer-Songwriterin, Sängerin, Gitarristin und Pianistin Rickie Lee Jones prägte einen neuartigen und oft kopierten Stil des Song-Arrangements. Schon auf frühen Album spielte sie bereits mit Größen wie Dr. John, Randy Newman oder Michael McDonald (Doobie Brothers). Auf Kicks präsentiert die charismatische Ex-Partnerin von Tom Waits Coverversionen von Liedern aus dem sog. American Songbook, in diesem Falle Klassiker aus den Dekaden der 5er-7er der Genres Pop, Rock und Jazz.

Kicks is an eclectic album of ten cover songs - from Mack The Knife written in 1928 for a German musical (known in the U.S. as The Threepenny Opera) that became a jazz standard, to Bad Company the eponymous theme song for the British rock band written in 1974. The arrangement and instrumentation, by producer Michael Napolitano (Ani DiFranco), provides a fresh and modern sonic infusion on every song. Rickie Lee Jones skyrocketed to fame in 1979 when as a barely known artist she appeared on Saturday Night Live. Performing her biggest hit Chuck E's In Love in her trademark red beret, Time Magazine instantly dubbed her the Duchess of Coolsville. Since then she has gone on to win two Grammy Awards, appeared on the cover of Rolling Stone twice, and included in VH1's 1 Greatest Women of Rock & Roll.
