ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"You can hear her love for the music from her heart...check out those low tones!" - Janet Lawson, GRAMMY nominated jazz vocalist

“Christmas Waltz” marks Janet's first released recording. Joining Janet are Kevin Bales on piano, Robert Dickson on bass, and Marlon Patton on drums. Janet's debut CD, "Believe in Spring" is scheduled for release on October 2, 2011.

Janet’s passion for the music is shaped by a lifetime of listening to and performing jazz, and an education from some of its finest performers. She credits her sense of swing, great ears and pitch to her father, a jazz drummer who insisted that she study piano before learning to sing.

Janet's talents were first recognized by world-renowned bassist Cleveland ("Cleve") Eaton, and she began singing regularly both with Eaton's band and with other jazz musicians in Birmingham, Alabama. She credits vocalists Shirley Horn, Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan, and Carmen McRae as major musical influences.

In addition to leading her own jazz quartet, she performed with some of Alabama's most notable jazz musicians, including Cleve Eaton, former bassist with The Count Basie Orchestra and the Ramsey Lewis Trio. She also appeared in the musical "Tuxedo Junction", with bandleader and trumpeter Erskine Hawkins. She currently resides in Atlanta, GA.

Janet studied jazz vocals with Judy Niemack, and Grammy-nominated jazz vocalist Janet Lawson. She has also studied with Ellis Marsalis, Barry Harris, and David Amram. Janet is a member of the Georgia Association of Jazz Educators and the Jazz Education Network and is dedicated to the cause of jazz education.
