Jane Stuart has been awarded the Blue Chip Award for
"Best Jazz Vocalist" IAJE/Jazz Journal
Jane sings with effortless style,natural warmth and phrasing that is subtle and right on target. She's the real deal.“Beginning To See The Light”,produced and arranged by Jane Stuart and Rave Tesar, is a wonderfully mixed selection of jazz standards by Jon Hendricks, Duke Ellington, Bobbie Timmons, Stevie Wonder, Mack Gordon, Rodgers & Hammerstein II and Harold Arlen. Choice of material and pacing of this CD put it in a class above the rest. Jane Stuart is a wonderful find and this CD long overdue. The rhythm section is tight driven by Rick De Kovessey's fine drum work. The excellent musicianship is sensitive and very tasty.It's obvious that they have a strong musical history together. Horn section with Frank Elmo, Vinnie Cutro, Conrad Zulauf and Dan Nigro, is solid on the one tune, "Moanin'". Soloists are all unique and wonderful with a special one on the exhuberent samba "It Might As Well Be Spring", by Lenny Argese .
Jane works with her trio, mostly in the NY/NJ area. She also sings with “Reflections”, a 19-piece jazz swing band.
