Fiona's Comments

Forever in the moment, Australia's vintage jazz vocalist Jennifer Salisbury summons some heyday, light theatrical schmooze. Substantial and supportive band solos throughout.

About the Album

This original jazz tune is a beautiful song describing the time spent thinking about the one you love. Let go as Jen and her stellar jazz band guide you through a world of vintage soundscapes and bittersweet emotions. Intrigue - Romance - Desire - Love - Heartbreak - Despair - Hope and everything, in fact, that makes life worth living. This is the story of ‘Unspoken Rule’, a jazz project built around the endless ramifications of love, as narrated through Jennifer Salisbury’s songs. Jen Salisbury: voice; James Mustafa: trumpet, flugelhorn; Aaron Rodriguez: baritone sax; Trent Howard: tenor sax; Samual O'Halloran: guitar; Hiroki Hoshino: double bass; Tim Clifton: drums; Selene Messinis: piano.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
