Jenny Sorrenti :: Suspiro

Though one may not guess it from the more recent entries of her discography, at one moment, Jenny Sorrenti was deep in the underground annals of psych folk. The Italian songstress may have moved on toward the more madrigal/trad-folk side of things in recent years, but 1976’s Suspiro came barreling forth in sun-drenched pop with a flair for fuzz and grit. And though it has been recognized for its association with Jorma Kaukonen’s brother Peter making an appearance on mandolin and production duties, Sorrenti’s debut deserves the chance to stand on its own merit.
