Album Description

My Shining Hour, Jennifer’s third collaboration with guitarist Peter Sprague marks a turning point in her career as she steps fully into her role as songwriter. Eleven of the thirteen tracks are Jennifer’s original compositions – a showcase of her skill and breadth in this arena. From heart-rending ballads, to swingers worthy of the Great American Songbook, to lush bossa novas and a stirring tango, My Shining Hour is a colorful tapestry of inspired and inspiring music. Two of the tracks feature the gorgeous, resonant voice of Jennifer’s life partner (and sometimes muse) Carey Williams in duet with Jennifer. Soulful, uplifting, poignant, tender, wistful, heartbreaking, cathartic, transformative, whimsical, playful, psychedelic – these are just a few of the words that describe this dynamic new recording.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
