Jeanne Ricks is described as a singer with a "smoky soulfulness" (New Entertainment Weekly Magazine), but her talents don't stop there. As a composer, she has actualized a myriad of impressive accomplishments that would have taken some a lifetime to achieve.  

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 chose 'Thorny Rose', 'Always', and 'Stronger than Pride' for her upcoming CD;

Chaka Khan recorded 'Don't Ask Me' for a WEA release; and 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 1st ever commercial CD release, titled
'The Weather Channel Presents: Best of Smooth Jazz' which reached #1 on the Billboard Contemporary Jazz chart.

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].

Her new CD "Make it Work!' was released in August 2009 and features Jazz saxaphonist Walter Beasley
