O’s Notes: Vocalist Janet’s quintet is bassist Ratzo Harris, Roger Rosenberg (sax, fl), pianist Bill O’Connell and Jimmy Madison on drums. The combinations of flute, sax and Janet’s scatting are very complimentary on “Jitterbug Waltz” and similarly with bass and piano on “Round Midnight”. This album was originally released on vinyl in 1981 and on CD in 2014 in Europe. Janet has influenced many as a musician and teacher. She suffered damage to her vocal cords after suffering from Lyme disease and Bell’s palsy. Funds from the US CD release will help fund her health.
