Coin and a Half Girls
Jazz - Contemporary
Her first recording effort, which she describes as a “concept album”, this album was released in the Fall of 2004. A solo work of piano and voice entitled Coin and a Half Girls is said by Anj to be “a journey through the inner life of one struggling to live honestly and remain grounded - a ceaseless attempt to try to maintain perspective in a world too often shallow and overblown by its own ego.”
On this inventive project, Anj has succeeded in capturing on record the experience of an intimate, autobiographical show in a small theater. Framing the album are dramatic prologue, intermission and closing tracks, which make the record less a collection of songs and more a play broken into two acts. She takes the listener on an unabashedly artistic and honest journey that they will not soon forget.
