"Four stars [for The Devil You Know]… Spooky retellings of rock history's riches… Jones should be applauded for bringing to the fore the disturbing voices that were always there, buried deep in the originals." - Record Collector"It's a simple, surprising record," says Rickie Lee Jones of her new album, The Devil You Know. Though she's one of the most acclaimed singer-songwriters of our time, interpretive singing has long been part of Jones's musical tapestry as well. Such previous collections as Girl at Her Volcano (1983), Pop Pop (1991), and It's Like This (2000) have illustrated the fresh and inimitable feel that she has for classic American compositions; she won a Grammy for her sly duet with Dr. John on the naughty-but-nice standard "Makin' Whoopee" and was nominated for another for her performance of "Autumn Leaves" with bassist Rob Wasserman. With The Devil You Know, Jones turns her focus to the rock & roll canon that shaped a generation. She tackles the work of such giants as Neil Young ("Only Love Can Break Your Heart"), The Band ("The Weight"), and Van Morrison ("Comfort You"). Though these songs are burned deeply into our brains, Jones finds her own unique way in, peeling them back with spare, intimate arrangements, and uncovering layers and emotions that feel both familiar and new.Rickie Lee Jones, 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. Following her now infamous debut television appearance on SNL, a successful world tour and the cover of Rolling Stone magazine, Jones secured five Grammy Award nominations (Record of the Year, Best Pop Vocal Performance, Female, Best Rock Vocal Performance, Female, Song of the Year ("Chuck E.'s in Love"), and Best New Artist, which she won at the January 1980 ceremony. From the moment she first appeared in front of us on Saturday Night Live in 1979, 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 totters on a thread of her own devise. www.rickieleejones.com Boston-based vocalist/guitarist Jesse Dee is a retro-soul singer/songwriter.
