Not since Billie Holiday has there been a vocalist who so completely
transforms a song into her own. On "It's Like This", eclectic folkie Rickie Lee
Jones envelops standards, showtunes, '70s soul, and even slick jazz-rock,
interpreting them with her familiar childlike, breathy shouts. In a very similar
vein as 1991's Pop Pop, Jones pulls together a collection of diverse songs from
throughout the 20th century and gives them a sparse, fragile spin, kind of like
Diana Krall and Bjork sharing coffee at an all-night diner. Produced by Bruce
Brody (who has also worked with Maria McKee and Bette Midler), this album is
really a showcase for the dynamic vocalist - her voice pitching and yawing like
a sloop far out at sea. Several notable artists scatter themselves unobtrusively
throughout the album like Joe Jackson, Ben Folds, John Pizzarelli, and Taj Mahal;
each lend a subtle bass line or harmony vocal, cautiously not stepping on any of
Jones' delicate lines.
