I tend to describe Jeanne Jolly, her voice and her countenance as "incomparable" for good reason. Her days performing with Grammy Award winning trumpeter Chris Botti, followed by her transformation into a bona fied "country" singer was something I had the distinct pleasure of absorbing. Her music as well as her glowing and giving personality always had a profound affect on me. One of the first reviews I had the honor of publishing was about her first EP, Falling in Carolina.. Her singing inspired me to take a bolder step toward writing about music and for that I am eternally indebted to her and her gift as a singer / songwriter. Since Falling in Carolina, Jolly has successfully continued to hone her craft and establish herself as a vocalist of the highest order.
It would be remiss of me not to take this opportunity to plug her latest effort: A home run rendition of Leonard Cohen's "Halleluiah", made all her own by the power she possesses vocally in union with her desire to raise awareness for a cause near and dear to her heart. Please take a moment to visit Jeanne Jolly's website , download the track and give it your full attention. All proceeds go to The Ovarian Cancer Research Fund.
SEE JEANNE JOLLY with CHRIS BOERNER, ALLYN LOVE, E. SCOTT WARREN and NICK BAGLIO at THE BERKLEY CAFE this FRIDAY JUNE 29.
