Rickie Lee Jones, “Traffic From Paradise”, by Alón Sagee
I’ve loved Rickie Lee Jones’s music for many years, and have been continuously awed by how she uses her voice as an instrument that integrates with all the other musicians to create the rich tapestry of sound that is her trademark.
This 1993 Album, Traffic From Paradise is just wonderful. It’s recorded very well and is available pressed on quiet 180g vinyl. My favorite song (today) is Running From Mercy, a hauntingly beautiful tune she sings with Leo Kottke and Lyle Lovett as back-up vocals.
Just about every song on the album is a gem. Enjoy! Alón
