On Crowded Heart, vocalist Judy Wexler presents jazz standards for the 21st century, an anthology of timeless modern jazz compositions by contemporary songwriters, including Gregory Porter, Luciana Souza, Fred Hersch, Rene Marie, Alan Broadbent, Larry Goldings, Alan Pasqua, Kurt Elling & Sinne Eeg.

With exquisite arrangements by Alan Pasqua, these songs are the perfect vehicle for Wexler’s warm, soulful voice and highly personal interpretations.

“Judy Wexler has carved out a jewel-like niche as a gracefully swinging singer who brings penetrating insight to American Songbook-adjacent material often overlooked by her colleagues. While clearly inspired by less-is-more vocalists like Shirley Horn and Irene Kral, she doesn’t sound anything like either of them. With space for countless joys and woes, Wexler’s heart (and book) can continue to contain multitudes.”
Andrew Gilbert, JazzTimes Magazine

“Indie jazz sensation, versatile and sensual vocalist Judy Wexler weaves magic, charm and emotionally resonant grace through an array of exquisitely arranged contemporary songs she dubs ‘New Jazz Standards.’”
Jonathan Widran, Music Connection Magazine

“A gorgeous album that says everything about Judy Wexler’s enormous talent. wonderful song choices, smart arrangements, and, most of all, her enveloping voice.”
Marc Myers, JazzWax

“What a joy to listen to this album, both for the exquisite music-making of Judy Wexler and Alan Pasqua, but also for their astuteness in finding and featuring outstanding songs by current-day jazz composers. Highly recommended!”
Ted Gioia, author of The History of Jazz and The Jazz Standards

"An always engaging demonstration of contemporary jazz singing at its best."
Bruce Crowther, The Jazz Journal

“Vivacious vocalist Judy Wexler shines a spotlight on outstanding contemporary songwriters in this luminous new jazz collection. Some of Southern California's top musicians play on this marvelous album, but it's Wexler's vibrant vocals, her heartfelt interpretations of these great songs, that make this record so exceptional. She exhibits a rare combination of intelligence, sensitivity and technique.”
Paul Freeman, Pop Culture Classics
