Rickie Lee Jones at Kent (OH) Stage last night. Great unstated performance, with RLJ's voice back to what it was! Yes! If you'd seen her a few years ago (and her albums at the time) she used a much less dynamic, lower octave voice, but all her wails, falsetto and soft nuance are back in full!!
The concert was very minimalistic with Rickie (acoustic guitar, piano) and her incredibly busy percussionist/vibist Mike Dillon. Wife and I had 3rd row aisle so it was wonderful and personal.
She did the standard RLJ stuff, of course, but often in her own "covers" sort of way, with a lot of interpretation that was quite something. But she also brought out some real unforgotten gems of her catalog like Falling Up, Horses, Blinded By The Hunt, etc. She sang for 2 hours to an only half-packed house of about 300 of us, but it didn't matter; we were fanatics anyway.
Go see here if you are in VA, MA, NJ, or NY this month.
