The name Jill Hennessy didn't ring a bell when I saw it on the new release list this past Tuesday, but I was very impressed after listening what apparently is her debut album. Quick research reminded me that she played Claire on a couple or so years of "Law & Order", which is about the only TV show I ever watch. Apparently she has also been (and may still be, for all I know) on a show called "Crossing Jordan" I suppose I might have been more cynical had I realized all that in advance of listening to the album, so I gave it another listen and -- I'm even more impressed.

See what you think:

The original track listing included a duet on Shelter From The Storm by Emmylou Harris and Rodney Crowell that was specifically recorded for this album but it was left off the final Crossing Jordan soundtrack so that a SECOND cover by Jill Hennessey could be included. The Emmylou/Rodney duet finally appeared about five years later on Rodney Crowell's record, The Outsider but I've always held a grudge against Hennessey (even though it may not be her fault) that someone bumped Emmy and Rodney so her second song could be included.

Also, FYI-- Jill Hennessey has an identical twin sister who's a journalist but the two have done occasional acting performances together.
