Per person cover charge of $20 applies

Award-winning vocalist and L.A. favorite Janis Mann "wows" audiences with a broad repertoire of soul-stirring ballads, hard swinging modern jazz, sensuous latin tunes, and spirited blues all presented with her own deft improvisational twist. Beyond the vocal quality is imaginative delivery and interpretation that comes from experience in life as well as performance. The way she weighs and colors the lyrics in her singing place her in rare company.

You’ve seen her perform with Diane Schuur, Roy Haynes, Kenny Werner, Terrell Stafford, Dave Frishberg, Jack Sheldon, John Clayton, Eric Reed, the Caribbean Jazz Project, Roberta Gambarini, and many other jazz luminaries in addition to her own legendary shows. Her music appears in films and her recordings are a radio and streaming mainstay.

Janis is based in Los Angeles and performs often in New York, her hometown, notably at the Blue Note and the Kitano. Her recent touring includes New York, San Francisco, Seattle, and Portland. Her latest CD “Celestial Anomaly” with pianist Kenny Werner followed in the path of her previous two releases by charting at the top of the national jazz radio charts.

JazzTimes Magazine says, “Mann is not only one of the most skilled vocalists around, but one of the most alluring as well."
