Jenny’s extensive discography has reached more than twenty albums since the year 2000, comprised of recordings on Steinway & Sons, hänssler CLASSIC, eOne Records, BIS Records, Albany Records, and Sunrise Records.
Her most outstanding media appearances include her as a featured artist on "Speaking for Myself", a film about Manhattan as seen through the eyes of eight contemporary artists by filmmaker Bert Shapiro, and her presence as the central figure in "Cooking for Jenny", a musical documentary portraying her journey to the north of Spain and meeting with composer Javier López de Guereña.
