RED ALERT

Janette Mason is a composer, arranger, producer and performer with a diverse musical career.

She toured extensively throughout the 90s with artists like Oasis, Pulp and Robert Wyatt and can be heard on the CD soundtrack to the recent Disney release, Cars 3.

She signed her latest trio project, Red Alert to Dot Time Records in early 2018 and released her third trio CD of the same name on March 16.3.18.

Red Alert is inspired by her passionate belief that jazz needs to constantly evolve to attract a younger, more diverse audience.Her unique contemporary compositions, drawing on her wide-ranging influences from Dave Brubeck to David Bowie and Herbie Hancock to Goldfrapp, combine interesting timescapes and modern beats with a cinematic texture and are underpinned by a mature and inventive jazz vocabulary. Her vision is brought to life by the explosive combination of Jack Pollitt on drums, Tom Mason on Bass and Will Fry percussion and is a direct musical response to the political and social challenges now facing us all – hence the name Red Alert.

Jan­­ette’s powerful and rhythmic approach to the piano is subtly fused with synthesizers to create a musical journey that is as engaging as it is thought provoking. Her music  has been described as similar to E.S.T and The Bad Plus.

Janette was nominated for a Parliamentary Jazz Award for her second trio album Alien Left Hand and she reached the Grammy ballot for The Live Smoke Sessions with Lea DeLaria for which she took on the dual roles of arranger and producer.
