Balm in Gilead
10 new songs

This album includes the R&B-flavored opener "Wild girl" written about Rickie's daughter , "The Gospel of Carlos, Norman and Smith" a reflection on society's racial injustice and its human ramifications; "Old Enough" (recorded as a duet with Ben Harper) and "The Moon Is Made of Gold," a star-dusted acoustic jazz gem, written by her father decades ago. Other highlights include the emotionally raw "Bonfires," the gorgeous ambience of "His Jeweled Floor" (on which Rickie plays all the instruments except bass and accordion) and the wild-dog howl of "Blue Ghazel."
