that musically inclined baby has grown into a vocalist of great power,
imagination, and artistry. Jenna's first album, Under the Influence,
was one of the most widely praised debuts in recent memory, earning a
four-star review in Japan's most prestigious jazz magazine, Swing

material with daring, Jenna makes a convincing case for herself as an
artist whose music transcends category.
