Janet Lawson - Dindi (Mono Version) The first of two superb records by The Janet Lawson Quintet, their eponymous debut set originally came out in 1981 on Inner City. An astonishing tour-de-force of the jazz singer’s art released at a time when jazz was widely viewed as being artistically moribund and when the market for straight-ahead jazz had shrunk to something of a rump (although the adventurous Inner City label had achieved a certain caché with hard-core jazz aficionados around the world, and notably with the UK’s jazz-funk scene of the late ‘70s)

Janet Lawson, born Janet Polun on November 13, 1940, in Baltimore, Maryland, is a jazz singer and educator. She was born into a family of professional musicians. As a child she performed on the radio and regional television.

The Janet Lawson Quintet. One of the finest jazz singers to emerge in the late '70s, Janet Lawson has surprisingly only led two record sessions. A brilliant scatter and a consistently strong improviser, Lawson is joined on this 1980 LP by baritonist Roger Rosenberg (who also plays soprano and flute), pianist Bill O'Connell, bassist Ratzo Harris, and drummer Jimmy Madison. The highly appealing vocalist really digs into the six tunes, which include "Jitterbug Waltz," Blossom Dearie's "Sunday Afternoon," "'Round Midnight," and "So High.
