Red Alert - Exceeds it's Target
The Red Alert Crowdfunding Campaign was a huge success.
The target was reached with 3 days to spare and then exceeded the 5k goal.
Highlights were the launch at Freedom bar on March 12th and the London Live interview.
Plans now are for Janette to finish writing the album in the next couple of month's and then record in June with a release date set for October.
Here's a clip of the Red Alert in action.
Red Alert marks a new direction for the Trio. The trio play contemporary jazz — cool grooves, interesting time scapes, funky synths with 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 (Founder member of Mamas Gun), complement Janette's unique improvisational approach perfectly to create innovative, energetic and engaging live performances.
"For all her familiarity with the commercial mainstream, Mason can't do anything obvious or unhip" - John Fordham The Guardian
Inspired to bring this music to new and diverse audiences Janette’s new sound is totally accessible.
“Jazz is alive and well – it’s an ever evolving art form and I am wholly committed to bringing this genre to a new and younger audience who are denied the opportunity to experience this music due to the narrow remit of our commercial radio stations.I want Red Alert to be at the forefront of this revolution.”
