Jane Getter

Jane Getter - See Jane Run - 2006 - Alternity

As written in Guitar Player Magazine, Jane Getter is “the fieriest fretboarding female ever to strap on a Stratocaster.” Early in her career she toured with legendary jazz/blues organist Jack McDuff, which provided invaluable training ground. She has since played with many jazz and rock greats while at the same time pursuing her own career as a band leader. Her composing talents received attention when she won the ASCAP Gershwin Award for Music for Theater or Dance in the mid 90′s. She then teamed up with writing partner Lenny White (drummer from Return To Forever). They co-wrote Urbanator’s smooth jazz hit “Hopscotch”, along with other compositions which were recorded on White’s CD’s Present Tense and Acoustic Masters. At this time she recorded and toured with Michal Urbaniak’s band Urbanator featuring Kenny Garrett, Tom Browne and Lenny White. She then received widespread exposure playing in the Saturday Night Live Band. Jane has appeared in Guitar Player Magazine various times with her featured interview in 2006 and with her instructional articles in the “Sessions” section. Her current band consists of a stellar crew of New York’s finest – James Genus, Adam Holzman and Anton Fig. They can be seen playing in the the New York City area and touring the U.S and recently opened for guitar legend Allan Holdsworth in NYC’s BB Kings Blues Club. Her debut CD on Lipstick Records titled Jane, received worldwide critical acclaim. Her 2nd CD titled See Jane Run was released in 2006 on Alternity Records, the home of Allan Holdsworth. In 2009 a special guitar duet project entitled Secret Code with guitarist Bruce Arnold was released on Muse-Eek Records . Jane continues to perform, tour and record with many great artists such as The Roots/”The Jam”, Jaimoe (Allman Brothers Band drummer), Ursala Dudziak, Kenny Garrett, Regina Carter, Richard Bona, etc. Recently she has been performing with her trio in festivals in Europe and the States, including Warsaw’s Guitar City and the San Francisco Jazz Festival. Follow Jane’s new musical direction into progressive rock/jazz, on her new CD “three”! Just released on Digital Nations and Alternity Records. © www.shreddelicious.com/2012_06_26_archive.html

Based in New York, the flexible jazz guitarist Jane Getter has played everything from fusion and pop-jazz to straight-ahead post-bop and hard bop. Getter's influences are far-reaching; Wes Montgomery and George Benson have affected her playing, but so have fusion guitarists like John McLaughlin, Pat Metheny, Al DiMeola, and John Scofield (who she studied with). Getter is originally from New Jersey; she moved to the Bay Area to attend San Francisco State University but ended up returning to the East Coast and making New York her home. In the 1980s, the guitarist enjoyed a stint with organist Jack McDuff, but after leaving his employ, she didn't stick to the type of soul-jazz/hard bop that he was known for -- far from a purist, Getter made it clear that she was the sort of musician who could play fusion one minute and straight-ahead jazz the next. After moving to New York, she studied privately with John Scofield, Jack Wilkins, and Chuck Loeb and was employed by artists who ranged from violinist Michael Urbaniak to saxman Joe Lovano and pianist Kenny Barron. In the late '90s, Getter led her own fusion/crossover band, employing such notables as keyboardist Adam Holtzman and bassist Victor Bailey. Both of those musicians appear on Getter's first album, Jane, which came out on Lipstick in 1998. © Alex Henderson © 2013 AllMusic, a division of All Media Network, LLC. | All Rights Reserved
