Rickie Lee Jones, Erik Friedlander-6.16
***LIMITED NUMBER OF $20 STUDENT TIX AVAILABLE AT BOX OFFICE ONLY.             'The Sermon On Exposition Boulevard', the new album by Rickie Lee Jones and her first for New West Records, is a beauty--soul-satisfying and sonically unique. What will certainly be most striking to some fans is that it rocks harder than any album the two-time Grammy Award winner has ever recorded. And yet, this music transcends all of its
historical touchstones, taking the elements and creating something that sounds totally new--full of grace, soul and adventurous sonic textures. What's ultimately just as fascinating as the remarkable music, however, is that all 13 songs are inspired by the real words and ideas of one Jesus Christ. The recording began in a painter's loft on an abandoned industrial street in mid-L.A in the summer of '05. Lee Cantelon, who can best be described as a modern renaissance man,originally conceived the project as a lo-fi, low budget spoken word undertaking, and the initial plan was to recruit friends and associates--from punk icon Mike Watt to a homeless man he encountered every day--to do the talking. The project changed directions, though,when Rickie Lee showed up to record her part. Instead of reciting the text, she stunned everyone in the studio by improvising an entire song to a track she had never heard. "Nobody Knows My Name" is that first recording. So began the inspired musical and textural improvisations that would become 'The Sermon On Exposition Boulevard', an intuitive and beautiful collection.
