Jaywalkin’, Jennifer’s debut release as lead vocalist, is both a tribute to the straight-ahead jazz tradition and a step or two outside of that tradition. This provocative collection of standards, originals and Brazilian songs features guitarist Peter Sprague (Jennifer’s co-producer and co-arranger) and bassist Bob Magnusson. From her poignant, dream-like interpretation of “I’m Old Fashioned”, to her heavily funkified version of “The Inchworm”, Jennifer will keep you transfixed. “A delicious listening experience,” says Reese Erlich of Jazz Perspectives.
