Album Notes
Pirate Jenny is releasing its latest CD, "Once Upon a Wave," a disc with a rich buccaneer theme. The songs walk the plank between ska, alt.folk-rock, Gilbert & Sullivan-style operetta tunes and traditional-sounding chanteys. All will leave you wanting to grab a cutlass, grow a beard and sail the seas with a parrot on your shoulder.

--Kyle O'Brien, The Oregonian 4/15/99

"Once Upon a Wave" isn't quite as cohesive in theme and style as "Never-Sea Land", it stretches the pirate music genre and has something for everyone.

The album includes some fabulous, glittering gems, including my favorite pirate song of all: "Sensitive Guy". This pop-sensation is the song which turned me into a devoted fan for life. Who couldn't adore a band that sings "I'm the only vegetarian on this here schooner, though occasionally I will eat some dolphin-safe tuna"?

Other favorites include the dreamy, "Scabby & Captain Slaymore", which conjures up daydreams of building sandcastles on the shore, and "Pirate Jenny", the story of a dastardly pirate and the landlocked lass who loves him.

"Long Time Sailing" will be a special favorite to Portland natives - the story of how this rollicking crew of pirates became a rock band after setting foot in this "stone colored city with aroma like a beer."
