Sony Music Entertainment Australia is excited to announce the release of Rick Price and Jack Jones’ brand new studio album, CALIFORNIA DREAMING on September 29th, available to purchase now!
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 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.”
Celebrating 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.
