Eden Brent – the Mississippi chanteuse and piano mistress called "irresistibly fresh" by NPR.org – will make her New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival debut May 2.
A former highlight of WWOZ's Piano Night during JazzFest week, Brent
made her acclaimed 2010 album 'Ain't Got No Troubles' in the Crescent
City. For her new release 'Jigsaw Heart' (May 6
/ Yellow Dog Records), she traveled to Nashville, TN to record with
renowned producer Colin Linden (Lucinda Williams, Lindi Ortega). The
resulting album is an artistic high-water mark for the Mississippian,
her piano-pounding prowess counterbalanced with vocals and songwriting
that recall a grittier Norah Jones in their emotional depth.
