ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Jenny Finn Orchestra plays the classic swing and gypsy jazz tunes of the 20's and 30's.

Biography
Based in Portland, OR, The Jenny Finn Orchestra plays the vintage swing jazz of the 20's-30's with a unique blend of sophisticated vocal harmonies, bebop lead guitar, classical violin colors and a hot rhythm section of gypsy guitar and upright bass. Led by rhythm guitarist Twayn Williams, the JFO is a sextet of jazz-inspired musicians whose love for these depression-era tunes is enhanced by their eclectic backgrounds that range from avant-garde to rock & roll to pop. Lead singer Carrie Baldwin-Sayre brings her extensive experience in theater to the forefront aided by canary-in-crime Janet Lindsley who kills with accordion on tunes from the Parisian café. Twayn’s gypsy rhythms, Hank Hadeed’s hot lead guitar, James Delaney’s thumpin’ upright bass and Megan Moran's bluegrass-inspired fiddle round out a swingin’ sextet that’s going to creep in like a shadow and then blow your top!

Description
The Jenny Finn Orchestra plays the classic swing and gypsy jazz tunes of the 20's and 30's. Established in 2010 by guitarist Twayn Williams, the JFO consists of 6 classically trained and jazz-inspired musicians residing in Portland, Oregon. The band name is inspired by a spooky Victorian-set graphic novel by Mike Mignola, author of Hellboy. The Jenny Finn novels were in turn inspired by a short story by H.P. Lovecraft, "Shadow Over Innsmouth." That short story is the basis for 2 JFO original tunes - "Sweet Jenny Finn" and "Shadow over Swingtown."
