Album Review

An eclectic collection of covers from one of jazz-pop's most eclectic performers, Pop Pop travels from the stage to tin pan alley through Jimi Hendrix's sky. Rickie Lee Jones cradles each of these songs with her pleading, gentle voice, backing them with subtle orchestration courtesy of notable performers including Robben Ford, Joe Henderson, and Charlie Haden. Her attention to love songs of the '40s and '50s demonstrates almost a longing for simpler times and simpler love, and these qualities are echoed in the treatment of songs like "My One and Only Love" and "I'll Be Seeing You." Her subdued take on the psychedelic Jimi Hendrix screamer "Up From the Skies" is slowed to a bluesy acoustic number, while the bratty refrain from Peter Pan's "I Won't Grow Up" seems blushingly sweet.

While fans of the folk styles she demonstrated with her 1979 self-titled debut might not see as much merit in these soulful jazz interpretations, it still demonstrates Jones' ability to evolve and her unwillingness to be pinned down into one category.

Customer Reviews

My favorite

I like most of Rickie Lee Jones' materials and albums, but by far this is my favorite. In part it's because of the range of materials but primarily it's the selection. She includes songs like Bye bye Blackbird, the Second Time Around and I'll be Seeing You with Love Junkyard and Spring Can Really Hang You Up the Most--it's a blend that works well. The old, the new, and the just plain Rickie. One mystery is the Horse Brand heroine sticker on the cover.

Big Little Girl Woman

Rickie's take on Dat Dere is perfect. The song is old, but it was written for her to perform all these years later! Serendipitous and soulful and wonderful... still loving everything she does, whether she wrote it or simply graces it with her lilting touch.

Not her best stuff

I like Rickie Lee Jones. However she does have better CDs to choose from. The one song on this you may like is the cover song "Comin' Back to Me'. It is a slow song though. After listening to this version, you may want to check out the Marty Balin version when he was with Jefferson Airplane.
