Nice job...tough act to follow

I've really enjoyed listening to Jenna's CD. Like Gabriel, I don't have any of these songs in my collection (though I have songs from many of the artists) and now I don't know why. Nice job.

My CD is due to everyone in November. My wedding was this last weekend but I managed to squeeze in some work on the CD during the last frantic days before the wedding. I have more work to do but it has been really fun to think about how you will hear these songs and frustrating trying to fit everything I want onto one CD. And now with Jenna's CD in your hands, I have to focus on a high quality mix. I love a challenge...

Jenna for launching the Owls in style. An excellent mix

In our industry/discipline(?), Jenna has the reputation of style, sophistication and elegance- contemporary with a nod to classicism/tradition. I expected quality.
It was an interesting mix in both breadth and diversity, even more considering I could not have pulled a single tune out of my collection, a very different selection..
I see traces of a narrative, but that could be the intro phone thing. I have never been that lyrically oriented, so I may be trying to read more than is there.
c ya, gabriel
