I love recording Jenna and John. We've been recording together more than 10 years on various projects. Over the years, Jenna has talked about recording the songs of Abbey Lincoln and a few months ago, the project rose to top priority. This duo recording is intended to be the basis of an album that would have strings, mandolin, accordion and other instruments. After hearing the vocal and piano tracks recorded live in the studio, it sounded so incredible, we wanted to release this early version without additional instrumentation.
The music is quite delicate, sparse and bare, meant for late evening relaxing in front of a fire. There have been no overdubs, no fixes or rerecording. Any anomalies you might hear are part of the challenges we face when recording at very soft volumes.
Please don't forget to listen to "When I'm Called Home". We've dedicated this songs to friends and family in far away places.
We love this recording and hope you do to.
