Both are songwriter/composers, educators, recording artists and improvisors who have been performing and touring for over 25 years. Jackie is known for her transcendent interpretations of familiar standards from the American Songbook, re-imagined classics from the 60s and 70s, inspired originals and long forgotten gems.
