I’VE BEEN in love with Rickie Lee Jones for 38 years, because of her unfailingly creative and original music.
There, I just had to say that, after seeing her in concert in New Jersey last night. She started by asking, “Where exactly am I tonight?” (She’s on tour.)
I patted my chest. You’re right here, Rickie. Right here.
