Red Alert - CD release tour

“A band leader of pugnacious flair and genuine unpredictability”

James Griffiths - The Guardian

 

Red Alert, is the name of Janette's forthcoming CD and trio project. The music is inspired by her passionate belief that jazz needs to constantly evolve to attract a younger, more diverse audience. Janette’s unique contemporary jazz compositions, drawing on her wide-ranging influences from Dave Brubeck to David Bowie and Herbie Hancock to Goldfrapp, combine interesting timescapes and strong grooves with a cinematic texture and are underpinned by a mature and inventive jazz vocabulary. 

Janette was nominated for a Parliamentary jazz award for her second trio album Alien Left Hand and she reached the Grammy ballot for The Live Smoke Sessions with Lea DeLaria for which she took on the dual roles of arranger and producer. Her music has been described as similar to E.S.T and The Bad Plus.

She has performed internationally at The Rochester and Atlanta Jazz Festivals with Ian Shaw, toured extensively throughout Europe with Soupsongs, the music of Robert Wyatt and been a frequent visitor to Japan with the band Workshy.

 

 “Infectious grooving, clever composing and audacious improvisation…One of the best”

John Fordham The Guardian
