Seasons of Life – The new CD from janita – –
(From Soultracks.com) She moved to New York at age 18 and was signed by Sony Records. Sony had trouble figuring how to market her lone album for that label, 1998’s Janita, in the US — Was she Jazz? Was she Soul? Was she Adult Contemporary? Unfortunately, the result was that the disc never found its audience in America. Janita recorded again in 2001, independently releasing I’ll Be Fine to generally positive reviews and to a small but growing international audience for her brand of smooth, jazz-infused vocal music. Compared by some to India, Arie or Jill Scott, her music was much more reminiscent of talented smooth jazz artists such as Basia or Everything But the Girl. I’ll Be Fine also showed her growing talent as a songwriter. ‘Seasons’ takes things a step farther. ‘Too Late’, ‘I Miss You’ are two of the great tracks on the CD. However, there is the one track that gets ya. To me, that single is – ‘That’s How Life Goes.’ For a quick listen, click here. ‘THAT’S HOW LIFE GOES’ It gives you a real good look into the CD, where it’s coming from and where it’s heading. Trancy – I like it!
– either way, she’s something to behold…and she’s coming…
