New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Following recent U.S. dates which wrapped July 20 in Los Angeles, singer, songwriter and musician RICKIE LEE JONES is planning another run of shows before she heads to Europe for shows in the fall. The latest shows kick off October 7 in Asheville, NC and wrap October 23 in Minnesota. The European tour launches October 27 with a festival appearance at the Bluesfest at O2 Arena in London. RICKIE LEE's tour dates follow the release of KICKS, her newest collection of songs from the great American songbook, which was released in June.

Check out a live clip of "Nagasaki," the second single from KICKS. For her version of the song-which was first performed by the Ipana Troubadours in 1928 and was most famously recorded by the Benny Goodman Quartet in 1952-JONES gives the track a traditional jazz offering of tight three-part harmonies.

Here's some early critical feedback from RICKIE LEE JONES' recent live shows:
"…a joyously wondrous evening with one of America's greatest living singer-songwriters…Jones enchanted an audience with a repertoire that was remarkably diverse in sound and style…Jones consistently made magic with her three-piece band." - Peter Blackstock, AUSTIN 360, 6-23-19
"Rickie Lee Jones shows Marina Del Rey the live jazzy style that made her famous…on a clear summer night, Jones played a range of jazzy bebop style tunes and kept the crowd enthralled with a voice that is still as youthful as when she recorded the 1979 hit 'Chuck E's In Love.' She's spunky and funky and fun." - Donna Balancia, CALIFORNIA ROCKER, 7-20-19

On KICKS RICKIE LEE JONES spans two decades (50s-70s) of pop, rock and jazz, presenting her unique and sophisticated interpretations of these songs. JONES is that rare musician who has transcended the singer/songwriter mantle by incorporating different radio genres from the get-go and she continues that tradition on the forthcoming album. It is fitting that one of the American treasures of songwriters should be comfortable with this diverse collection of the great songwriters of the 20th century. KICKS was created entirely in New Orleans, using local musicians,mixers and studios. Produced by RICKIE LEE JONES with her bandmate, vibraphonist Mike Dillion, it features 10 songs of a highly infectious nature.
