My Shining Hour

My Shining Hour

a cosmic exploration, within and without

a journey of self-discovery

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.
