what the critics are saying

“A profound pop-jazz album that connects traditional American pop with the present in a way that has never been done before.... She seamlessly carries off a tricky balance between fluid jazz singing and acting. This balancing act goes beyond juggling swing and theatrical savvy. It is embodied in her voice. Just below a surface bubbling with tenderness and cheer flows a current of sadness, which lends her performances a charge of emotional electricity.”
–The New York Times

Jessica Molaskey
Sitting in Limbo

Hailed by The New York Times as "A profound pop-jazz album that connects traditional American pop with the present in a way that has never been done before," SITTING IN LIMBO places Jessica Molaskey in the ranks of the great jazz artists. The CD has its origins in Molaskey's sold-out engagement at New York's famed Algonquin Hotel in June of 2006.

Surrounded by an extraordinary group of jazz musicians, including Grammy-nominated keyboardists Larry Goldings and Larry Fuller, the phenomenal sax player Harry Allen, and of course her husband, jazz guitarist and vocalist John Pizzarelli, Molaskey applies that "emotional electricity" to covers ranging from Jimmy Cliff to Sting to Billy Joel to Joni Mitchell, plus a few Molaskey-Pizzarelli originals. The results are disarming, captivating, stirring and irresistible.
