Rita Coolidge Signs to Concord

Two-time Grammy-award winner Rita Coolidge has signed to independent label Concord Records to release her first new recording in over five years and her first jazz album of her career.

The album, slated for summer 2005, will be produced by Jimmy Haslip of The Yellowjackets and overseen by Concord’s John Burk, who recently worked with Ray Charles on his Genius Loves Company album. The CD will include a repertoire of jazz and pop standards, as well as one of Coolidge’s unreleased tracks, “A Song for You,” a love letter written by Leon Russell to Coolidge.
