ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The tracks were excerpted from her first three vinyl albums and a later cassette, plus previously unreleased acetate discs, reel-to-reel tapes and cassette recordings. All the various music sources were carefully transfered to the digital realm by Jack Miller with WAVES Restoration software. The opening song, from a 1947 demo tape, establishes her distinct vocal style. Successive studio and live tracks through 1989 showcase her incredibly swinging approach to jazz and blues, always with her individual imprint and invention as she played piano and trumpet or fluglehorn at the same time. She retired in 2003 and died in northern California at age 79 in August of 2008.

The Very Best of Nadine Jansen
This is a true jazz treasure! I've been a fan of Nadine Jansen since the 1970s, when she was the reigning queen of the local scene, performing at Phoenix-area clubs and posh resorts. I've had her vinyl and cassette albums for years, and it's wonderful to have excerpts from all of those, and new tracks, all in one album. I keep listening to this CD again and again, and I always hear some new element that only Nadine could have created. The songs are memorable, and her delivery of them is incomparable and unforgettable.
