Following the recent ARIA chart success their hot new album ‘California Dreaming’, Rick Price & Jack Jones have announced that they are embarking on a national tour in May 2018, with a show right here in Newcastle at the Civic Theatre, Sunday, May 27, 2018.
‘California Dreaming’ is a tribute to the west-coast California sounds of the 60’s & 70’s has been beautifully recorded by Australian music legends, Rick Price and Jack Jones with Rick at the production helm. Both Rick and Jack share a common love for the music of the period and were both equally enamoured by the idea of paying tribute to some of the greatest artists and songs of the 20th century.
Recording the twelve track album in Nashville at his home studio, Rick talks about making the album, saying: “I felt we needed to pay homage to be these songs and be respectful to the melodies and arrangements and not drift too far off the reservation. But, at the same time, we wanted to add some things here and there that made a difference”.
With Jack adding: “Rick and I have been talking about doing something for close to two decades… it was a great opportunity to work together and celebrate great artists, some great songs, and a certain time and genre. That period in music will never be repeated again.”
Rick and Jack will be celebrating music from the likes of The Mamas And The Papas, Linda Ronstadt, Neil Young, Jackson Browne, Eagles, The Doors, Joni Mitchell, James Taylor, The Byrds, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young. The ‘California Dreaming’ tour is set t be a magic ride back in time for lovers of the classic west-coast California sounds of the 60’s & 70’s
