Album Notes
Vocalist Janice Borla regards herself as a “vocal instrumentalist,” with a voice that has been praised for its beauty and technical agility. Sounds of Timeless Jazz: “Exquisite voice…a passionate, excellently-trained multi-range vocal improviser.” Jazz critics have applauded her risk-taking approach. Scott Yanow (AllMusic Guide): “…A true jazz singer…who constantly takes chances and stretches herself.” Esteemed jazz journalist Owen Cordle: “Borla sets a high standard for the traditional art of scat singing and employing the voice as an ensemble instrument or solo horn…She’s emotionally satisfying and technically superb, with bull’s-eye intonation and a solid tone throughout her range.”
Janice’s 2003 CD release Agents of Change, named “The #1 Jazz CD of the Year” by WBEZ-FM Chicago Public Radio, has enjoyed wide critical acclaim and extensive international radio airplay. Jazz Times describes her as “a one-woman jazz tornado” and praises the album as “...eight breathtaking musical canvases, each a perceptively executed masterpiece... Genius. Pure genius.” Gary Walker (WBGO, NY): “Fresh and inventive... This CD knocks me out.” Pittsburgh Post-Gazette: "A stunning singer with a lustrous voice and the technique, imagination and daring of the best improvising instrumentalists."
For this CD Janice delves into a program of modern and contemporary jazz compositions, including three for which she wrote lyrics (“Black Narcissus,” Remembering the Rain” and The Aerie”). Joining her for this project are saxophonist Rich Fudoli, trumpeter Art Davis, vibraphonist Brad Stirtz, guitarist Fareed Haque, and her regular rhythm section, pianist Dan Haerle, bassist Bob Bowman and drummer Jack Mouse.
