Jenna’s live performances capture her audiences and hold them like butterflies in the palm of her hand. “Jenna could sing a page from the phone book and make it sound like her own private piece of the sky,” writes Grapevine Culture critic Kimberlye Gold. “Like a devious detective, she can look around a room of any size and use that gift to freestyle a song on the spot about the people in it, including her band.” Recognized as one of the leading women of jazz/pop crossover for three years in a row by Jazziz Magazine, she recently shared the honor of both the cover and an original song “A Love that Lasts”, included alongside Diana Krall and Norah Jones.

Rolf Sturm is a NY/NJ area guitarist who has performed and/or toured with banjo pioneer Tony Trischka, drummer Billy Martin, country singer Eddy Arnold, the Argentinean tango group New York-Buenos Aires Connection, the Grateful Dead big band Illuminati, klezmer clarinetist Giora Feidman, and the Walter Thompson Orchestra. He also leads his own New York City area bands Feed The Meter and Just Cause, and he co-leads the Jazz trio Tricycle.

Rolf has toured North America and Europe, performing at the World Expo 2000 in Hannover, Germany, and at Lincoln Center and Town Hall in New York City. He has performed on soundtracks for both film and television and has released many CDs on the Water Street Music label. Rolf has recorded dozens of CDs as a sideman, appearing on recordings with Loudon Wainwright, Glen Velez, Maggie Roche, Ike Willis, Dave Douglas, Cameron Brown, Jorma Kaukonen, David Johansen, and Pat Boone!?!
