“A first class jazz singer!” Scott Yanow, jazz critic and author, proclaims. At once both a striking song stylist and a fearless improviser, Janis Mann is that rare artist who can sweep you away with her captivating sound. She is a true jazz singer in the manner of Carmen McRae, Betty Carter, and Shirley Horn, yet with a sound all her own. An exciting and engaging performer, Janis’ rich timbre, flexibility, and range often invite comparisons to Sarah Vaughan. Some of the jazz luminaries she has sung or recorded with include: Roy Haynes, Diane Schuur, Jack Sheldon, Jon Mayer, Ross Tompkins, John Heard, Red Holloway, and Dave Frishberg, earning their praises.
A native New Yorker, Janis is now a favorite on the Los Angeles jazz scene, her performances a hit in L.A.’s best rooms including Catalina’s, The Jazz Bakery, Charlie O’s, The A-Frame, and Steamers. “This exceptional jazz vocalist has been making waves with her performances. Good stuff!” notes Brick Wahl of the L.A. Weekly.
