The first time I heard her sing "Sentimental Journey," I fell in love with Gene Tierney. The way she transported me to another era was just magical. I knew I wanted to record it for my own record. I chose "Sentimental Journey" as the title track because it sets up the whole record as a journey back in time. I asked my pianist Guilio Carmassi to open the song with laid back, sultry jazz piano that reminds me of listening to the John Lewis record "Afternoon in Paris" over and over and over again as a child.
