Jazz Divas Series JBGB Events London Jazz Gigs

Arriving from the US for her U.K. debut in this concluding concert of our Jazz Divas 2020 Series, we welcome Janet Planet,  the  sultry vocalist with a vast repertoire of jazz, blues, and standards…with some Bob Dylan thrown in for good measure.

This concert marks the international launch of Janet’s latest show, paying homage to the iconic 1962 Capitol Records release of Nancy Wilson and Cannonball Adderley featuring songs from that album, “Happy Talk”, “The Masquerade Is Over” “Unit 7” and so many more, supported by saxophonist and husband Tom Washatka with Jim Watson - piano, Geoff Gascoyne - double bass and Matt Home -drums.

In 2017 Planet was acknowledged by the GRAMMY Foundation for her recording “Janet PlanetJust Like A WomanThe Music Of Bob Dylan”.

Janet’s determination and creative output continues to take her around the world through her recordings and live performances. with tours across the U.S., Canada, Japan, Russia, South Africa and Europe.

She  leaves listeners assured that there is a soul in this “Planet”.
