Hailed by Fred Hersch as “a real discovery - a first rate musician in every way", singer and composer Joanna Wallfisch celebrates her second release for Sunnyside Records, and her most adventurous album yet — Gardens In My Mind. A stunning collaboration with Dan Tepfer and The Sacconi Quartet, Gardens is an intricate collection of originals and imaginative covers, including those of Tim Buckley and Joni Mitchell. Featuring her signature pure vocals, poetic lyrics and lush piano and string quartet arrangements Wallfisch blurs the boundaries between the classical, jazz and singer-songwriter worlds. “[With her] clear-eyed poetry Wallfisch combines the intimate purview of a singer-songwriter with the technical liberties of a jazz improviser, crossing boarders and flouting rules…” (The Boston Globe).

The songs lead the listener through her own imagination, from dreams of a secret garden in which she can escape the confines of her city dwelling, to stories of true love, grief and heartbreak. In her affecting, darkly hued cover of Joni Mitchell’s “All I Want” she combines string arrangement with her distinctive loop pedal techniques, drawing on the message of the ever-searching soul, evoking a journey that has just begun.

Long an admirer of the orchestral sounds on recordings of artists such as Nick Drake, Joni Mitchell and Laura Mvula, Wallfisch had been keen to work with such sound worlds herself. With Gardens In My Mind she has done it, exploring new aesthetics while highlighting her playfulness and trust in her fruitful imagination.

Her concert at The Forge Venue as part of this years London Jazz Festival will be the UK debut of this record, directly following Joanna’s 6 week album release tour in the USA.
