Rickie Lee Jones
Because I got to raise CharlotteIt is a beautiful song, at once heartbreaking and reassuring, resonating deeply with an awareness of life's interwoven pain and beauty. On a humid summer night when you're feeling a bit melancholy, you can listen and be reassured that you are not alone. Thank God for Rickie Lee Jones.
Jones performs at the Ark Aug. 26.

Rickie Lee Jones has been a favorite of mine since the late 70's. She laid the groundwork for so many of today's female vocalists, but rarely gets the accolades she's due. Thank you for this wonderful article about a gifted woman.
