All Music Guide - Zac Johnson
An eclectic collection of covers from one of jazz-pop's most eclectic performers, Pop Pop travels from the stage to tin pan alley through Jimi Hendrix's sky.

Her subdued take on the psychedelic Jimi Hendrix screamer "Up From the Skies" is slowed to a bluesy acoustic number, while the bratty refrain from Peter Pan's "I Won't Grow Up" seems blushingly sweet.

    Rickie Lee Jones at her best

    Not pop at all, but a collection of outstanding covers that sets her firmly in the pantheon of vocal jazz greats. A must for Rickie Lee fans and for jazz enthusiasts alike.
