ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Jazz vocalist Janet Planet releases an album of Bob Dylan songs that features thirteen of Mr. Dylan’s compositions from the 1960’s.

Ms. Planet is most influenced by lyrics, and in constant quest to connect the meaning, physicality and musicality of words. Like many other jazz and cabaret singers, Janet Planet has drawn from the “American Songbook” for material, but as an artist she is continually reaching beyond traditional boundaries for inspiration. Janet was drawn to the concept of a “Dylan Songbook” not only for the poetic value of Dylan’s work but also for the musical challenge his melodies posed for a jazz musician.

Planet reflects, “I am a lover of words. Bob’s prose inspired me to sing his “songbook.” As it turns out, I became a legitimate Dylan fan only after I tackled, articulated and assimilated his words... wrestled with, tampered with, and slept with his words.”

The original arrangements are Janet Planet collaborations with long-time musical partners Tom Theabo and Tom Washatka. Tom Theabo is featured on lead guitar throughout the album.

All songs written by Bob Dylan. Produced by Janet Planet, Kyle Knoke & Tom Washatka. Executive producer: Kyle Knoke. Recorded & mixed by Tom Washatka.

Tom Theabo (guitar), John Gibson (bass), Andy Sachen (bass), Danny Lueck (drums & percussion), James Le Fevre (drums), Tom Washatka (saxophone & keyboard)

Really cool and unique!
I love this album! It is quite daring to tackle a legend. The arrangements are really fresh, not at all imitative of Dylan. This is good, since Dylan is inimitable. Janet can sing anything and make it sound great, so it's no surprise that she aces this effort. And you will adore the backing band.
