My guest on this episode is the acclaimed jazz and cabaret singer, Barb Jungr. Those labels don’t begin to capture the myriad of musical styles and personal style that infuse her work as a songwriter and performer.

My back up plan resulted in a recording where the audio quality isn’t as good as this conversation deserves. I do hope you’ll be able to put that aside in order to enjoy Barb’s stories and insights. They’re well worth the effort.]
