ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Music has always been a place of great joy and community for me, and a refuge in times of challenge. It is a steady companion and keeper of my deepest thoughts and feelings. I along with millions am making the journey through the cancer experience and the songs on this CD are ones that I've written while on this journey, plus one I am revisiting. The illness has been a great teacher and I have learned how to take a sour experience and turn it into something sweet. I hope you enjoy this batch of lemonade!" -- Jennifer

"A graceful guitarist and songwriter whose subtle style places her somewhere between Joni Mitchell's open-tuning confessions and jazz adventurer Patricia Barber." -- Bliss / Pasadena Weekly

Hello! I am happy to say this is my fourth CD. It's been several years since the recording of "Nonodey" but "Lemonade" is especially meaningful to me on several levels, and I feel worth the wait. Not only because I got to produce it myself, but I had the opportunity to work with the fabulous Los Angeles guitarist Riner Scivally and percussionist Jerry Kalaf whom I've wanted to record with for many years. We recorded in a very simple "old school" style where we set up in a circle in the same room and played live without headphones. This took us four days. I tell you, it was a revelation and something I have wanted to do ever since the recording of the song "I Have A Ladder" on my second CD "Eye of the Storm". It was the first song I recorded in that fashion and it left a strong impression. There were no lead vocal fixes on "Lemonade" and we did a minimum of vocal harmony and vibe overdubbing. For me, this is the way to record, with a small ensemble and very intimate.

If you are interested in hearing samples from my first three CDs, just click on the Artist Website link on this page. I hope you enjoy my new CD!

Lemonade
I can't stop playing Jennifer's new cd - Lemonade! It is a beautiful journey of voice, lyrics and melody. I admire the originality of the sound - a sophisticated mix of folk and jazz - and the clean accompaniment by her fellow musicians. Thank you, Jennifer, for the inspired respite!!

Refreshing Lemonade
I found this cd to be just like the title suggests, cool and soothing like lemonade on a hot summer day. Jennifer's style is at once evocative of the great female singers with smoky style and still completely her own as she coos, scats and smiles her way through these songs. Her guitar work is the perfect match for that matchless voice and the supporting musicians do their jobs by showcasing the talent that is center stage.

Wonderful Folk music flavored with Jazz
Jennifer Robin’s latest released CD, “Lemonade” is overflowing with sweet sounds of Folk music sprinkled with colorful flavors of Jazz. Robin impresses the listener with her soothing, laid back voice as her songs capture the essence of heartfelt and well written lyrics. “Into the Blue” features delicate and engaging guitar fills that compliment the silky vocals. As an added bonus, “Love Packard (Poem)” projects the same smooth and emotive clarity as Robin’s poetic poetry is just as brilliant as her voice and songs are. An easy flowing tempo and wonderful harmonies on “Be-ya” swirl playfully around this catchy melody. Jennifer Robin and her supporting musicians have created a thoroughly appealing and melodic album. If you like Folk music with a touch of Jazz then “Lemonade” will surely please your tasteful palate.
