Blue Nights & Sunshower CD


“On Blue Nights & Sunshower, Janice Jarrett offers deeply expressive, moving versions of superlative tunes mainly by piano giants George Cables and Kenny Barron, outfitting these ace vehicles with her lyrics and gracing them with vibrant, often delightfully-layered vocals. Great musical partners abound.  A winner.”  (Zan Stewart, formerly  with The LA Times)
Here’s a couple of minutes featuring Mike Eckroth on piano and Alieksey Vianna on guitar, along with the fantastic rhythm section: Kenny Barron’s “Belem.”

Zan later emailed: “Could have said more. Very cool, very strong, lot of feeling. Wonderful to hear your voice – like you’re talking to me, Band good too. Really splendid job.”

“I wanted to let you know I think you did a wonderful job on the CD. Congratulations on a very professional album. I appreciate you asking me to be a part of it and hearing the finished product is very gratifying.”  (Dmitri Matheny, guest artist on Fluegelhorn)
