Red Alert Day - Official release 16.3.18

Dot Time Records is honored to announce that it will release Red Alert by London based pianist, composer, arranger and producer Janette Mason.

Red Alert worldwide release March 16th, 2018.

Inspired by her passionate belief that jazz needs to constantly evolve to attract a younger, more diverse audience, Red Alert is brought to life by the explosive combination of Jack Pollitt on drums and Tom Mason on Bass. It is a direct musical response to the political and social challenges now facing us all.  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 modern beats with a cinematic texture and are underpinned by a mature and inventive jazz vocabulary. Janette’s powerful and rhythmic approach to the piano is subtly fused with the keyboards to create a musical journey that is as engaging as it is thought provoking.

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.
