THE NEWTON THEATRE 234 Spring Street
most known for her 1979 self-titled debut album which yielded her a
GRAMMY Award for Best New Artist, Rickie Lee Jones’s
songs include “On Saturday Afternoons in 1963”, “Last Chance Texaco”
and the mega hit “Chuck E’s in Love”. Rickie Lee Jones’ upcoming
album “Pieces of Treasure” is a reunion with her lifelong
friend, legendary producer Russ Titelman, co-producer of Jones’
star-making debut and “Pirates”. Throughout her career, she has interpreted an extraordinarily wide range of songs and
has recorded celebrated jazz-leaning albums including “Girl at
Her Volcano” and “Pop Pop”, but until now, she had never
devoted an entire album to the American Songbook. She will be
backed by Rob Mounsey on piano, guitarist Russell Malone, bassist
Paul Nowinski and drummer Mark McLean.
