This is a landmark CD for Jan being her 12th solo album, recorded entirely on her own grand piano, with a protracted song writing period due to the COVID lockdown. “I had much more listening and thinking time on this CD than any prior, and I’m very excited by the results.” says Jan. “I’m also delighted to be able to come from Sydney (via hotel isolation) to play an extensive tour of the North Island with my trio. We’ll be performing my new material as well as some music that’s been in our set for a while but not recorded until now” - Join her at The Globe Theatre, Main St., PN on October 22nd.
