Rickie Lee Jones Traffic From Paradise Hybrid Stereo SACD
Mastered by Kevin Gray at Cohearent Audio!
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.
