Janis Mann & Kenny Werner

Dreams of Flying (Pancake Records)

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, Mann’s rich timbre, flexibility, and range often invites comparison to Sarah Vaughan.

Janis has performed with Diane Schuur, Roy Haynes, Terrell Stafford, Dave Frishberg, Jack Sheldon, John Clayton, the Caribbean Jazz Project, Roberta Gambarini, and many other jazz luminaries.
