Jane Getter has played with many jazz and rock greats while garnering increasing recognition as a bandleader and gifted writer and instrumentalist. Early in her career she toured with legendary jazz/blues organist Brother Jack McDuff, which provided invaluable training ground. Her composing talents received attention when she won the ASCAP Gershwin Award for Music for Dance or Theatre in the mid 90’s. At this time, she also recorded and toured with Michal Urbaniak’s band Urbanator, featuring Kenny Garrett, Lenny White and Tom Browne. 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 featured on White’s “Present Tense” and “Acoustic Masters” CD’s. She then received widespread exposure playing in the Saturday Night Live Band.
