Janette Mason Trio next gig - Oxford Wine Cafe Feb 12
Feb 12th Oxford Wine Cafe
"A band leader of pugnacious flair and genuine unpredictability”
James Griffiths - The Guardian
The Janette Mason's New Trio
Janette Mason Keys and Piano • Jack Pollitt Drums • Tom Mason Bass
The trio play contemporary jazz with cool grooves, interesting time scapes, funky synths and a cinematic texture. Think Herbie Hancock meets Dave Brubeck. They have recorded two successful albums, including the Parliamentary Jazz Award nominated 'Alien Left Hand'. The intuitive style and musical expertise of Tom Mason - Bass (Lizz Wright) and Jack Pollitt - Drums (Mamas Gun), complement Janette's unique improvisational approach perfectly to create innovative, energetic and engaging live performances. Janette is known as an outstanding arranger so alongside her contemporary jazz compositions the trio take on arrangements of pop classics such as Cars by Gary Numan and Ashes to Ashes by David Bowie.
