-- "I listened to Jane's CD and thought it was really cool, and actually very progressive material! She's got something really special going on."
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 Urbanato 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.
