Q: Hello Jacqui, How has your education and your years in living in NYC helped you come up with your unique style of music? Jeanne Gilbert

A: That's a great question Jeanne. To be honest, my educational background is all over the map. I started off studying computer science, then moved to architectural interiors. But it wasn't until I was in my mid-30's that I realized I was an artist "of some kind". I finally finished my degree with a concentration in creative writing at City College of New York, so I feel I got a strong writing foundation. In addition, I studied voice with Jane Burbank (a wonderful musical theater/cabaret vocalist), who, among many mentors who would follow her, got me where I am today. I think in general, my interests have always been wide-ranging, and New York being such a melting pot, I think I brought that sensibility with me when my husband and I moved to Texas for his academic pursuits. It was in Houston that I met the musicians who would give their talents and generous, adventurous spirits to this project called "Frontier Jazz", which C. Michael Bailey described as "where jazz meets the American frontier." It's New York and Kentucky all on the same sheet of music!
