Da Capo

This recent CD can be thought of as a celebration of the long-time friendship of vocalist Janet Planet and pianist John Harmon. They have performed together on an occasional basis over the past 40 years. Ms. Planet was originally a folk singer but changed direction after hearing the classic Nancy Wilson/Cannonball Adderley record. She has a very inviting voice and can sing bebop quite well while not forgetting her roots in folk music. One of her recent recordings (there are over two dozen) is her versions of Bob Dylan songs. John Harmon is on Ms. Planet’s recording debut (1986’s Sweet Thunder), recorded a duet album with the singer (1995’s More Beautiful Than Planned), joins her as part of a trio on the Gene Bertoncini recording Just Above A Whisper, and is an important part of her Get Happy and Of Thee I Sing CDs.
