Liner Notes
JENNY REPRESENTS THE ROOTS...THE TREE...THE LEAVES OF A DREAM...A DIGNITY...A PRIDE...A FRUSTRATION...THAT STARTS IN THE OLD COUNTRY...AND CAME ASHORE IN SHACKLES...THAT COULD NEVER CONTAIN THE STRENGTH OF THE MEN...THE LAUGHTER OF THE CHILDREN...AND THE FIRE AND THE PRIDE AND THE DIGNITY AND THE STRENGTH OF MOMMA...WHOSE BEAUTY OF SOUL CAN BE SEEN AND FELT AND HEARD IN THIS PORTRAIT OF JENNY. AND ONLY DIZZY GILLESPIE COULD SEE HER THE WAY SHE REALLY IS.
