In a late-career twist, the "Chuck E.'s in Love" singer hones in on well-known pop-jazz and rock songs from the 1950s, ’60s and ’70s. She brilliantly upgrades Bad Company's self-referential track with a more literal interpretation of lyrics like "A destiny, oh it's the rising sun / I was born, a shotgun in my hands," stripping away the cock-rock veneer for a haunted desert breeze. Steve Miller's "Quicksilver Girl" becomes a shimmering lullabye in Jones' hands, while the cloying Skeeter Davis classic "End of the World" gets a moody, Randy Newman-esque makeover. At other moments — "My Father's Gun" by Elton John, "Lonely People" by America — the singer stays pretty true to the originals, just letting her voice pour over them like honey. One of Jones' neatest tricks is pulling away the ring-a-ding jokiness of two tracks made famous by Dean Martin ("Houston" and "You're Nobody 'Til Somebody Loves You") and imbuing both with pure, sweet warmth. It can sound a little confused when consumed in one setting, but broken up for a cocktail-party playlist, it's pure pleasure. © Qobuz
