Rickie Lee Jones was invited to participate in the summer of 2006, and in a matter of moments she changed the entire nature of the project. Jones claimed she could not read the words with any authority, but asked if she could sing them. She was left alone in a room with a microphone and, without the text, completely improvised the words from her heart. There were two tracks taken from those sessions, the opening cut, "Nobody Knows My Name," and "Where I Like It Best. The songs Jones cut at Exposition Boulevard sat on a shelf for a while, until she contacted producer Rob Schnapf and asked him to recruit the same musicians to go further. The sheer organic nature of some of these recordings is more akin to what indie rock musicians would try to pull off because of budgetary constraints.

Lacking the classicism and diversity she showed on Evening of My Best Day, the emotional directness of Traffic from Paradise or the transcendent weirdness of Ghostyhead, The Sermon is, at best, a mildly diverting b-road, and probably the weakest album of her career thus far, considering her dizzyingly high standards. Most disappointingly, the album only murkily evokes the figure of Christ, holding the listener at something of a distance.
