Jenna Mammina (vocals) and Rolf Sturm (guitar) got together for a special one-of-a-kind recording! Live in the studio – the best of both worlds. Put two great musicians in a room with no headphones, no overdubs, and only the recording crew with the ultimate gear to capture the sound what you get is passion in the song. Only the best of the best musicians can achieve this and both Jenna and Rolf rise to the occasion. The album flows effortlessly as they perform classic pop and jazz songs of the ’70s and ’80s.
A must-hear is “Wicked Game” – a song originally written and performed by Chris Isaac. Jenna and Rolf put their unique spin on this classic song making a haunting version all their own. Slow, somber and every breath heard.
Of Jenna’s voice, former senior editor of Rolling Stone Magazine, Ben Fong-Torres says “Exquisite. Rolf Sturm has also earned the praise of Joe Pass, Jim Hall, John Abercrombie, and Bill Frisell. Together they create a beautiful sound that captures our imagination and brings a fresh feel to popular songs. Recorded to DSD, and mixed through an analog console to get the finest sonic results. Recorded and produced by Blue Coast Records founder, Cookie Marenco.
