The songs from the show formed the basis for the album The Men I Love: The New American Songbook (Naim, 2010) released to great acclaim. By then, Jungr was opening a new show, “River," at Caf Carlyle to further rave reviews. With concerts lined up throughout the year--invariably well attended and well received--plus other projects coming to fruition, the future looks bright for Jungr.

Veteran AAJ Contributor and London Correspondent John Eyles spoke with Jungr at great length recently, about bringing disparate music into the jazz sphere, the deeper significance of some of the songs she interprets, and much, much more.
