Last Show: Thursday 12 th March 2020

PizzaExpress Jazz Club (Soho)

'Red Alert' is pianist Janette Mason’s explosive new trio. A platform for her unique contemporary jazz compositions. Her music has been described as similar to EST and The Bad Plus. Bringing together the dynamic rhythm section of Chris Morris and Tom Mason for this performance this is cutting edge jazz for a new generation. The Trio play contemporary jazz with cool grooves, interesting times scapes with funky synths and a cinematic texture. Think Herbie Hancock meets Dave Brubeck. The intuitive style and musical expertise of Tom Mason - Bass and Chris Morris - Drums, compliment Janette’s unique improvisational approach perfectly to create innovative, energetic and engaging live performances. Janette is known as an outstanding arranger so alongside her contemporary jazz compositions the trio take on arrangements of pop classics such as Gary Numan’s Cars and Ashes To Ashes by David Bowie.

“Infectious grooving, clever composing and audacious improvisation…One of the best”

John Fordham - The Guardian
