Almost Real

by Jane Zell

Diverse - Jane & the band flow naturally from one feel to the next without being overproduced to create an upbeat, unpretentious disc that grooves with style: rock, jazz, blues and funk. Nicely done.

Album Notes
Jane Zell’s 2017 CD – Almost Real – includes 8 original songs and a country- blues take on Gene Autry’s 1939 hit, Back in the Saddle Again. American roots at its finest, Zell grooves on a rockin’ rhythm section while she and the band flow naturally from one feel to the next, always staying grounded in what the words and music have to say.

Versatile, Zell’s vocals offer grainy-warmth or gritty expressiveness. Hailing from the music mecca of the north-east, Syracuse, NY, Jane is supported by some of the finest musicians in the area including harmonica dynamo Curtis Waterman (cuts 2, 9); vocalist and trumpet player Tamaralee Shutt (cuts 1, 5, 6, 8, 9); Queen Bee Brand - George Rossi on keys (B3 organ and piano, cuts 1, 2, 5, 6, 8); and stellar rhythm section; stand-up bass player Joey Arcuri (Driftwood fame) & Phil Leone on traps & cajon. Special guests, George Newton supplies pedal-steel guitar for cut 1 on Feels Real; and Frank Grosso adds bottom to Rain (cut 4), with baritone saxophone. A skilled guitarist, Jane lays down solid rhythms and tasty solos for the disc (check out her solo on cut 3, Hold On). The Zelltones' singers include Connie Walters, Colleen Kattau, Tamaralee Shutt, Gamil Ashaun and Zoe Mullen-Stout, with solid harmonies that fills out the overall presentation of the music.

The disc is professionally produced by award winning engineer and sound technician Jeremey Johnson at Subcat Studio and mastered by Jason "Jocko" Randall at More Sound Studio, both of Syracuse, NY.
