Never Too Late
This is Jan's first solo album as singer/songwriter!!! It's called 'Never Too Late' and it is an eclectic mix of musical styles and sentiments. Some of the best musicians in the business worked on it with her including her co-producer/guitarist Peter Calo, of Carly Simon fame! Jan is best known from her work on Broadway and in the Symphonic Orchestra world as a guest soloist . She has sung with over one hundred orchestras in the U.S. as well as major orchestras in Italy, Brazil, China, Israel, Canada, and even Bulgaria!!!! She appeared in five Broadway shows including the original companies of 'The Phantom of the Opera' where she got to perform the roles of Christine and Carlotta; Bob Fosse's 'Sweet Charity' (the first revival starring Debbie Allen); and 'The ThreePenny Opera' starring the one and only Sting. Jan toured around the country playing a very old cat - Grizabella, (you know the one who sings 'that song')- in Lord Lloyd Webber's 'CATS'. She is proud of her Off-Broadway work as well which includes working with Yoko Ono in her musical 'New York Rock' (cast album on Capitol Records), and playing the role of Svetlana in the Tim Rice's Revised version of 'Chess' where she got to sing one of the best songs ever written: 'Someone Else's Story'. Another Off-Broadway favorite was 'Jacques Brel is...' at the old Equity Library Theater where she wowed audiences with her version of Brel's amazing song 'Marieke'. As a songwriter Jan had the incredible priviledge of premiering her song 'Immigrant's Anthem' with the Cincinnati Pops Orchestra in 2005, and most recently got to sing it again with The Rochester Philharmonic on a barge in the Erie Canal with about 14,000 people lining the shores! Quite a thrill!!! This year she also performed another original song called 'Adolescent's Lament' with the Albuquerque and Wichita Symphonies in which she played- of all things -her TUBA!!! (Note her tuba can be heard on the final track of her CD as well!) Jan lives in New York City with the love of her life, the incredibly gifted Italian-born painter/artist/poet, Rino Li Causi. Rino provided the beautiful images for her CD and also helped to compose one of the songs (the one sung in Italian!).
