From the moment she first appeared in front of us on Saturday Night Live in 1979, Rickie Lee Jones has challenged her listeners and the establishment with an absorbing musical vision that defies border and classification. 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 tottered on a thread of her own devise, jazz – the old musical kind, and R&B – the Motown thread that permeates her work. Her sense of humor, musical dexterity and song craft will all be evident at Bull Run on July 26.
