Countdown to Latitude...Rickie Lee Jones

RICKIE LEE JONES

Probably best known for her jazz-toned, easy-swinging smash hit from 1979,‘Chuck E’s In Love’ and for once having stepped out with Tom Waits, Jones affects a distinctive style which blends R&B, folk, Beat poeticism and jazz in a foil for her impressively supple, slightly smokey voice.

Rickie Lee Jones plays the Uncut Arena on Saturday July 14.
Latitude takes place July 12 - 15 at Henham Park, Southwold, Suffolk.
