Jenny Burton – Something Old New Borrowed Blue

Liner Notes

A Word from Jenny Burton on Something Old New Borrowed Blue

My latest album, created in collaboration with composer, producer, Peter Link, is a heartfelt collection of songs we both love.

The title of this album reflects the range of subjects and emotions that we wanted to convey, old songs made new again, new songs dealing with present day issues, borrowed songs (covers) with new approaches and, of course, blue!

In creating this most eclectic music experience, we looked at many of the issues of the day that have affected our life and times. It also, of course, deals in the subject of Love and many of its various ramifications.

A Word from Jenny’s Producer

Jenny and I spent 6 months recording 11 new songs – some new material that I’ve written just for her, and several covers that I know you’ll love, done with that very special Jenny Burton touch.

I’ve always loved this quote from Critic, Bill Ervolino of The Record:

“If you can’t put aside a Thursday night to catch ‘The Jenny Burton Experience’ at midtown’s Don’t Tell Mama, you can always toss 10 sticks of dynamite into your tool shed and watch the roof take off for the stratosphere.” 

That’s Jenny – back then and today.

Those of you who know Jenny’s work from the past know that she is one of the great vocalists of our time. Those of you who are new to Jenny … well, … I’ll just let you discover for yourselves …

About Jenny Burton

In the late 80s and early 90s Burton had four national number one R&B/Dance hits — “One More Shot,” rose to Billboard’s number five slot and led to Burton’s first major-label solo deal.  Atlantic Records released her first LP, “In Black & White,” which included the hit single, “I Remember What You Like”.  “Bad Habits,” off her second album was a #1 dance hit in America and rose to #12 on the R&B charts. She has to her credits as well two gold records from films — Harry Belafonte’s Beat Street and White Nights starring Gregory Hines and Mikhail Baryshnikov.

Moving more into an Inspirational direction, she created with producer/composer Peter Link, The Jenny Burton Experience, an award winning Inspirational group ran for seven years to sold out standing room only audiences at New York City’s “Don’t Tell Mama”.  

Along the way she sang at the Gospel Music Awards in Nashville and performed in the Movie Guide Awards in Hollywood, played a recurring role on ABC Television’s soap opera “All My Children”.

In 2019, Jenny returned to her disco roots, performing for a Body Mechanic Event at the Copacabana in Port Chester, NY.  

Recently, Jenny joined the cast of Rosemary and Thyme, a Musical Podcast written and composed by Peter Link.
