Last fall I was granted a sabbatical. I shared with my colleagues that I planned to practice the piano, focus on wellness, and re-read some of my favorite books, including The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. One of the senior faculty asked me: "Why did you read that book that kids read in grade school?"
Jordan Witzigreuter: "I wrote a bunch of songs -- 70 or so -- over the past two years, and only a few of those 70 were even considered for this album. I tend to like a song when I finish it, give it a week, and then I'm over it, so the ones that made the cut were the ones I still felt passionately about."
