Sister of well known artist ALAN SORRENTI,
Jenny, (or Jane, as she was called in her
early releases), was born in Naples from
welsh mother, and formed there
the acid folk trio Saint Just.
With this band she released two albums
before embarking in a solo career that only
produced two more albums in the 70's.
Jenny's style as a solo artist is far from
her previous bands, being much closer
to the song format.
Both albums being mainly built on Jenny's
delicate voice, "Suspiro" is the best of the two,
with help from experienced musicians like
PETER KAUKONEN (brother of Jorma,
Jefferson Airplane's guitarist), drummer
Francesco Froggio Francica
(from RACCOMANDATA CON
RICEVUTA DI RITORNO and PROCESSION),
guitarist PINO DANIELE
(later a well known solo artist),
violinist LUCIO FABBRI (PFM) and
long cohort Toni Verde from the SAINT JUSTdays.
"Suspiro" has recently reached high values
due to the interest by many foreign collectors
in the Jenny Sorrenti production.
A great rarity never reissued on vinyl, now on CD!
