Getter, Jane: Three

With Three, guitarist Jane Getter is ready to show the world that a woman is totally capable of sitting alongside some of the male virtuosos on the scene. Previously, Getter has worked with Jack McDuff, Lenny White, Michal Urbaniak, Kenny Garrett, as well as having a premier slot in the Saturday Night Live Band. On her new CD, Getter shows plenty of trailblazing guitar chops, whether they be on crunchy vocal based rockers "Open Up Your Eyes" and "Too Much Fear", or gorgeous instrumentals like "Third Eye" and "Before Noon". On "Over the Edge", Getter and her band unleash their inner Deep Purple, delivering a raunchy guitar/organ thumper with plenty of fiery playing, and "Open Season" takes that same framework, but ditches the vocals and adds some tasty electric piano to the mix for an added jazzy touch. "Scofused" is an obvious tribute to John Scofield, and full of bluesy, jazzy bluster, while "Exsqueeze Me" adds a laid back funk element to her rock/jazz/blues bag of tricks.

Throughout it all, Getter's guitar is at center stage, jazzy, bluesy, at times with a hint of metal, but always tasty with a nice tone. Her vocals are not as strong as her guitar chops, but perhaps with time she'll gain more confidence in that department. The instrumentals here though are killer, and this album as a whole would be one to seek out if you are into strong guitar based music. A new guitar hero has arrived!
