”Breezy and agreeable company....Janusz is a whiz on the keys and has a pleasing Sinatraesque voice!” Misha Berson, Seattle Times

“His rich baritone has hints of insouciant humor...” —Jazz Improv magazine

“His fourth, full-length studio album... 'Cafe Pluvieux' is an engaging journey through different destinations and moods....the first song 'Don't Start the Show Without Me' is a cabaretesque, playful tune full of spirited piano and vocals from Janusz —and even a surprise interlude with steel drums...this album also showcases strong Northwest musicians ..including Medearis Dixson on alto and tenor sax, and SPencer Hoveskeland on double bass, electric bass, and guitar” —Lucienne Agarwall, Earshot Jazz Magazine (Nov 2018)

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
