Singer of the month : Janice Jarrett

In Jazz Singers of the month on December 14, 2011 at 7:57 am

Best jazz clubs in the world would be nothing without artists who share their experience all over the world. This month one of our friends: Janice and her new album.

Janice Jarrett sings the music of Kenny BarronGeorge Cables & more in her December 1, 2011 release of Blues Nights & Sunshower.
Out of her library of lyrics that include compositions by Barron, Cables, Freddie Hubbard, Judd Miller, Moacir Santos, & Eddie Russ, Janice Jarrett has selected seven originals by Barron & Cables for her first CD.
Joined by an energetic cast of accompanists, Blue Nights & Sunshower includes a Rodgers & Hart standard & a beautiful bossa nova by Sting.
This is the first time Jarrett has been able to sing her own words with her own arrangements in a solo recording.

Recorded while many of the group were performing in Jarrett’s ensembles, the recording captures their easy camaraderie on typically challenging songs on her largely original set lists. Performing in the CD: guest recording artist Dmitri Matheny, flugelhorn, international Classical & Jazz award winning guitarist Aliéksey Vianna, bassist Mike Levy, pianist Mike Eckroth, percussionists Dave JeffreyGil Rodriguez & Bill M. Martinez, & guests violinist Michael Fan & baritone Paul Johnson.
