Songs for Petra presents the music of renowned composer John Zorn and the lyrics of Grammy Award–winning songwriter Jesse Harris performed by Petra Haden (vocals), Julian Lage (guitar), Jorge Roeder (upright bass), Kenny Wollesen (drums), and Jesse Harris himself (guitar, vocals). Petra, who sings with Bill Frisell and The Haden Triplets, first collaborated with Jesse on the album Seemed Like A Good Idea: Petra Haden Sings Jesse Harris (Sunnyside Records); Julian Lage (2018 Grammy Award nominee) is fast becoming perhaps the best known young jazz guitarist, whose latest album, Modern Lore (Mack Avenue Records) debuted at #1 on the Jazz Billboard chart. With powerful songs sung by the potent singer they were written for, this is not an evening to be missed!
