RIDGEFIELD, Conn. -- Grammy Award-winning artist Rickie Lee Jones made an immediate and profound impact on the music world when she released her first album more than 35 years ago.
Her self-titled debut album and its single, “Chuck E.’s in Love” made her a beacon of New Bohemia and landed her on the cover of Rolling Stone.
Since then she's made some of the most poignant and adventurous music the radio's ever played and remained a dynamic live performer with a dazzling vocal approach, according to a press release.
She won a Grammy for her 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.
Jones returns to The Ridgefield Playhouse at 8 p.m. Wednesday.
