Let go as Jen and her stellar jazz band take you on a journey through vintage soundscapes and bittersweet emotions. Intrigue - Romance - Desire - Love - Heartbreak - Despair - Hope and everything, in fact, that makes life worth living. This is the story of ‘Unspoken Rule’, a jazz project built around the endless ramifications of a love cycle experience, as narrated through Jennifer Salisbury’s songs. When onstage, she channels the great voices of the ‘40s and ‘50s guiding her audience in a time-traveling roller-coaster of emotions, navigating the history of jazz. Her own songwriting is deeply influenced by the golden era of jazz; it’s almost impossible to tell apart the songs that she wrote herself, from the classic repertoire she draws from to tell the Unspoken Rule story; songs immortalised by Billie Holiday, Chet Baker, Doris Day, Benny Goodman, in unexpected arrangements by James Mustafa, turning the project into a balancing act between the vintage and modern aesthetics.
