Ziua Chitarelor was my first chance to see Jennifer Batten live. In this special video Jennifer Batten made special tribute to Michael Jackson, playing a compilation of the solos from Michael's songs in Jennifer's own unique style. The crowd were highly enthusiastic and deeply appreciative of this gesture. The video does not include the onscreen back projections produced by Jennifer to go along with the show... for that you'll need to go along to one of her shows.

I think I would describe Jennifer as a guitar artist, painting with music and media. Her two handed approach along with chain of effects enables her to conjure up swathes of colour and texture, emotion and grace. I would certainly recommend checking out Jennifer's live show, particularly with the media back projections.
