This truly accomplished and amazing vocalist continues to leave her audiences spell-bound with her new show and her first Solo artist Jazz CD “Where I Hang My Hat Is Home” continues to sell throughout the world. Her latest CD is due for release leter this year.. The smooth, pocket-grooves Jacki sings to combine old-world class and swing with some classic Latin and “Motown” type grooves to add to the mix.
