ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
With genre-bending grooves and a blend of Soul, Jazz and R&B this dynamic 3rd CD from Jeanne Ricks is set to heat up the charts!

What people have said about Jeanne Ricks…..

“Deep artistry, classic songwriting, rich harmonies” - Bob James

“ A Real Force” - Downbeat Magazine

“ A wonderful storyteller and a great songwriter” - George Benson

Jeanne’s Track Record......

Jeanne Ricks is described as a singer with a "smoky soulfulness" (New Entertainment Weekly Magazine), but her talents don't stop there…..

Famed Guitarist George Benson selected Jeanne's 'Love Remembers' for the title track of his Warner CD.

Francis Ford Coppola chose one of her songs for his critically acclaimed movie 'Assassination Tango', starring Robert Duvall.

Anita Pointer (from the Pointer Sisters) chose 'Thorny Rose', 'Always' and 'Stronger than Pride' for her upcoming CD.

Chaka Khan recorded 'Don't Ask Me' for a WEA release.

Tony Ransom recorded 'Take It To Heart' and 'Turn To Me' for his Expansion/EMI solo album.

Her song 'Simple Pleasure' was recently chosen for The Weather Channel's first ever commercial CD release, titled 'The Weather Channel Presents: the Best of Smooth Jazz' which reached #1 on the Billboard Contemporary Jazz chart for 7 weeks.

A multi-instrumentalist who plays Acoustic & Electric Guitar as well as Keyboards - Jeanne lends background vocals to two of Steve Coleman's tracks on his groundbreaking CD 'The Sonic Language of Myth' [RCA/Victor].

Jeanne's new CD “Make it Work!” features the exciting Walter Beasley 'cuttin' up' on the title track 'Make it Work!' and on 'Something More² Say'. Also (Miles Davis’ alum) Robert Irving III with an amazing solo on "War & Insufficient Peace'!!

Jeanne says: "You could say that the song Make it Work!" is a kind of homage to fashion guru Tim Gunn who uses the phrase to encourage designers to take raw fabric and create magic - something that expresses their style & personality but, rocks the runway! That's what I wanna do - take you to the next level - 'rock you' !"


'Make it Work!' CD Dedication:
For my Uncle Percy who believed in my dreams, as much as his own.

'Make it Work!' CD Acknowledgments:
Robert Irving III and Walter Beasley for sharing their incredible talents here and lifting the songs to a transcendent height.
Danny Leake of Urban Guerrilla Engineers, Chicago, whose ears I’ve come to rely on as much as his gracious spirit and keen insight.
Vanessa Holley for lending her creative talents to the cover artwork.
Regina Fleming for finding me on the other side of her lens and capturing some wonderful photos.
