ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
“Songs are the way we humans communicate best---it’s a basic instinct. All through history songs have been sung to deliver the message of devotion to a higher power, of love and longing, of nurturing and comfort, of heartbreak and loss, of joy and celebration—all giving voice to what just can’t be expressed with words alone or instruments alone.”

Jane lives many musical lives. From her classical training as a child she grew to appreciate all kinds of music, and has included elements of classical, folk, jazz, country, and spiritual music into her work. In all these forms, Jane’s music invites introspection and seeks to have a calming and uplifting influence. “Pitt’s original songs are very sunny things about nature and hope that she somehow brings off through sheer sincerity.” (Cadence Magazine)

She has been writing songs ever since she discovered, at 15, that if she played guitar instead of oboe she could sing at the same time. Following early years of college concerts and coffeehouse gigs, Jane recorded “This Beautiful Feeling” for Unity Records. Two albums followed: “Wind Off the Water,” recorded in Nashville and produced by Grammy winner Mac Gayden, and “Peace of the River,” recorded with some of the Detroit area’s finest jazz musicians.


Peace of the River:
“ . . .if you find pleasure in the quiet beauty of words set thoughtfully to music and expressed with freshness and clarity, you will like this.” Detroit Jazz

Peace of the River is a collection of eleven songs that range from standards to blues to bossa. Half are original compositions and half are songs that Pitt fell in love with long ago and had to get to know, in the way you get to know a song only by singing it over and over until it becomes your own. All the songs speak of growth and peace, and try to convey that message in a way that soothes the soul.
