At This Moment: Jennifer's debut recording, comprised of her own original material. She sings, as well as plays Mountain Dulcimer, Native American flute and cello. Philip Mylod joins her on the Irish Bodhran and assorted percussion, while guitar wizardry is provided by John Wilson. Tom White (of Wizmak) did most of the engineering and contributed solid support on violin, whistle and bass. Abigail Mylod also adds cello.
This is a superb album in that - it is both creative and colorful. But above all, this lady can sing! Her arrangements are well structured, well played and very sophisticated in the best possible sense of the word. The dulcimer, guitar and flute weave in and around the vocals like a comfortable pair of shoes.
Jennifer's dulcimer playing is very solid and serves as the framework for most of the arrangements. The guitar and the flute add just the right amount of flash - the bass adds an important texture and the bodhran serves as an underlying heartbeat that makes the music breathe.
The engineering is excellent and you'll find yourself amazed that all this was accomplished for presumably much less money than your average pop superstar spends on demo tapes!
