Jen Salisbury is a warm, caring person, filled with empathy and a kind of contagious energy. She is also a singer with a very special affinity to vintage jazz, an inherent sense of swing and a very characteristic vibrato. She has been demonstrating all these qualities singing standards with her trio for a few years now, but it was when she presented herself as a songwriter – with Unspoken Rule – that she got to really blossom. Now she has a sophomore album ready, Call of the Wild –which further establishes her songwriting qualities and commitment to creating a songbook all of her own. If the first album was an anatomy of a love story, a theme that anyone can relate to, this one is really personal. It is an introspection, a collection of contemplative essays in vintage-jazz-form on growing up, on trying to find yourself and pursue your dreams, whilst – or despite of – facing the challenges and obligations of adulthood. A theme, that is, that anyone can relate to, once again.
