Jane Getter

Jane Getter is “the fieriest fret-boarding female ever to strap on a Stratocaster”...........Guitar Player magazine.

Jane Getter has played with many jazz and rock greats while garnering in- creasing recognition as a bandleader and gifted writer and instrumentalist. Early in her career she toured with legendary jazz/blues organist Jack McDuff, which provided invaluable training ground. Her composing talents received attention when she won the ASCAP Gershwin Award for Music for Theater or Dance in the mid 90’s. At this time she also recorded and toured with Michal Urbaniak’s band ‘Urbanator,’ (featuring Kenny Garrett, Tom Browne and Lenny White). Getter then teamed up with writing partner Lenny White (the legendary drummer from Return To Forever), and co-wrote Urbanator’s smooth jazz hit “Hopscotch”, along with other compositions which were recorded on White’s Present Tense and Acoustic Masters CDs. She then received widespread exposure playing in the Saturday Night Live Band.

Her debut CD, titled Jane, received worldwide critical acclaim. Jane’s 2nd CD, titled See Jane Run, was released in 2006. It was a powerful statement, featuring Keith Carlock, one of the most talked about young drummers, (who soon after performed on tours with Steely Dan and Donald Fagen), and contains the classic jazz-rock anthem “The Loop.” Secret Code, a special guitar duet project with guitarist Bruce Arnold, was released in 2009. Her current band consists of a stellar crew of New York’s finest: James Genus, Adam Holzman and Anton Fig, and are featured on her latest release, three (released 10/16/12) which has recently been submitted for a Grammy Nomination.

Jane has appeared in Guitar Player Magazine regularly, most recently in a special feature interview in the February 2013 issue. She has also written instructional articles for Guitar Player’s “Sessions” section. Other great artists Jane has recorded or performed with include Ursala Dudziak, The Roots The Jam, Jaimoe (Allman Brothers Band drummer), Kenny Garrett, legendary Headhunters drummer Mike Clark, Cindy Blackman Santana and many more. Her band can be seen playing in the New York City area, touring the U.S. and Europe performing in festivals such as Warsaw’s Guitar City, Austria’s Outreach Festival , the San Francisco Jazz Festival, etc.
