1. What kinds of music do you like?

Straight ahead / be-bop jazz. The American Songbook...the standards...and sometimes some unexpected songs in these styles.

2. Are you a musician or singer? An aspiring musician or aspiring singer? (You do not have to be a musician to be a member of our group. Non-musicians are very welcome, and we will have lots of great shows for you to go to!)

Musician first, singer second; but actually for me it is one and the same. Playing with others takes the word "intercourse" to a whole new level when it's happening with a certain level of mutual understanding.

3. If you are a musician or singer, what is your primary instrument? (Singers may answer "Voice".) Do you play any other instruments in addition to your primary?

Ah, I'm a singer who may pick up the viola again....

4. If you are a musician or singer, what kinds of music do you like to play/sing? (For example: Rock, Soul, Pop, Classical, Jazz, Country, Hip Hop, etc.)

Anything that reaches me....Gospel moves me the most. I was raised on classical & baroque. Breaking out of the four-cornered box was necessary to enter the jazz world.

5. Multi-part question: 1. Do you have a web site or audio/video links? 2. Do you have any additional music-related skills? 3. Where have you performed? 4. Is there any other music-related information you would like to tell us about yourself?

Janelle With U on YouTube shows some very basic video of things I've done in the past 6 months. My background is violin, viola, concert band percussion, piano, sacred chorale.... More info to follow.... I'm on the way to support my friend Rick Bogart at L'ybane Restaurant on 8th Avenue!


I find that singing is the purest form of being.
