About A Sentimental Journey
A collection of archival style songs, inspired by famous jazz, pop and soul standards of the 30s, 40s, 50s and 60s. This all-female fronted assortment of sultry torch-songs, emotional ballads and syrupy-sweet pop songs, will take you back in time to iconic moments in music that forever stand still.
