The disc has its origins in Molaskey's sold-out engagement at New York's Algonquin Hotel in June 2006. According to PS Classics co-founder Tommy Krasker, "Sitting in Limbo" finds Molaskey "surrounded by an extraordinary group of jazz musicians, including Grammy-nominated keyboardists Larry Goldings and Larry Fuller, sax player Harry Allen, and her celebrated husband, jazz guitarist and vocalist John Pizzarelli — in covers ranging from Jimmy Cliff to Sting to Billy Joel to Joni Mitchell, plus several standards from the Great American Songbook (and a few Molaskey-Pizzarelli originals)."

Pizzarelli produced the new disc. Molaskey's previous solo albums for PS Classics include "Pentimento," "A Good Day" and "Make Believe." She is also heard on the PS Classics recordings of "Windflowers: The Songs of Jerome Moross," Fine and Dandy, and most recently, John Bucchino's "It's Only Life."

Winner of the 2007 Nightlife Award for Outstanding Female Vocalist, Molaskey is a veteran of a dozen Broadway and Off-Broadway shows, most recently A Man of No Importance at Lincoln Center. Other credits include Parade, Dream, Tommy, Crazy for You, Les Misérables and City of Angels.

She has sung in concerts from Lincoln Center to Carnegie Hall to the Montreal Jazz festival. The release of "Sitting in Limbo" coincides with Molaskey and Pizzarelli's engagement at the Café Carlyle in New York City in May.

Songs include "Sitting in Limbo," "Heavy Cloud, No Rain," "Summer, Highland Falls," "Ooh Child," "I Want to Be Happy"/"Sometimes I'm Happy," "There Will Never Be Another You," "Knowing You," "I'm Gonna Sit Right Down and Write Myself a Letter," "The Circle Game"/"Waters of March," "Walkin' After Midnight," "Hearts and Bones," "Morning Has Broken"/"I Woke Up One Early Morning."
