This is one suggestion offered in this list (which has been extended to 50). Under it is a description that I think is as appropriate today as when Jackie first began singing stories.
She's A Natural Storyteller
"This struck me one day while driving and listening to her first album "Prelude To A Dream". Each song she sings is also a story that she tells with a unique timing and nuance that only the best of storytellers is capable of. She draws me into every song she sings -- where she has already been, and made herself comfortable. Couple that with a voice that is free and unstrained, wide of range, spot on-key, pleasant, with a full and rich in timbre without any discoloration that I can discern, and a vibrato that changes speed and depth depending on the song, she is the whole singing package.
I noticed this from the beginning.. She loves "stories".. because she does them so well.. If there is a story she can relate to I think she will always do well with it.. Like "Summer Knows".. making -the summer- a metaphorical entity.. Some like baudy tavern beer songs.. others like tamer stories.. I believe Jackie is one of those.. (in preference)."

I wonder who she would love most to have perform at HER birthday party.
I'm glad Jackie is #1. I'd choose her in a heartbeat if I wanted a celebration and could afford her fee. The one I would NEVER choose is Persephone (wife of Hades, Greek god of the underworld); that, for a birthday party, would really be pushing one's luck, I think.
rickolsen: My cats and I are well. They are sleeping. I'm watching football. I just went to the store and got some noodles alfredo. I'm not really into chicken alfredo. I just like the noodles and sauce.

rickolsen: My cats and I are well. I just gave them some chicken gravy dinner. I'm watching football. I woke up about 20 minutes ago. Yesterday I went to the store and got some smoked ham lunch meat, mustard, and bread. I may have a couple of sandwiches later.

rickolsen: Phoenix and Sampson are sleeping. Brandie is eating dry dinner on my desk. I gave them gravy dinner a little while ago. Beef. Sometimes Brandie eats beef and sometimes she doesn't. Today she didn't. I'm watching football.

rlhamil: In general, if you copy/paste the foreign language posts (historically almost all Vietnamese here) into translate.google.com, you'll find they're some sort of commercial spam. A very occasional non-English post might be from a fan, but that's rare.

rickolsen: My cats and I are well. I gave them some gravy dinner an hour ago. Two are sleeping, but Brandie just woke up. She's eating dry dinner on my desk. She will go back to sleep. I'm watching Super Bowl X.

rickolsen: My cats and I are well. I gave them gravy dinner a little while ago and they are sleeping. I just watched a movie called The Game Plan. I've watched it about 30 times. It's a great movie. Phoenix just woke up and is on my desk.

rickolsen: My cats and I are well. They are sleeping. I'm watching The Game Plan with Madison Pettis. It's my favorite movie. I've watched it at least 50 times. I'm eating feta cheese and kalamata (Greek) olives. I love them.

rickolsen: I got a very good report from my doctor. I've lost 25 pounds. He said I should keep eating feta cheese and kalamata olives. He said they are good for me. I don't have to be on insulin for my diabetes. I feel good.

rickolsen: My cats and I are well. Jackie hasn't done anything in going on 2 years. No new music. Nothing. Is anyone still a Jackie fan?

rickolsen: My cats and I are well. My cats killed 3 mice in the last couple of weeks. The mice must eat cat food. My kitchen cabinets are above my sink and there is no food in them a mouse could eat. A mouse couldn't reach them anyway. I don't like mice in my house.
