Rickie Lee Jones | Last Chance Texaco: Chronicles of an American Troubadour

Carole Phillips Memorial Lecture In conversation with singer, songwriter, and novelist Wesley Stace Acclaimed for ''her hauntingly beautiful voice and fearless experimentation'' (NPR), singer–-songwriter Rickie Lee Jones has remained one of music's most intriguing figures for more than four decades. Combining rock, jazz, blues, and pop, her 18 albums have garnered two Grammys and a multigenerational fanbase. A sought–-after collaborator, Jones has been a guest vocalist in more than a dozen other musicians' works. She is also a celebrated record producer, actor, and narrator. Last Chance Texaco is an intimate account of her unsteady childhood, the pleasures and pitfalls of early success, her battle against substance abuse, and her enduring position as a woman in rock and roll.
