Janey Clewer and her husband Bruce Gaitsch are now finishing up Janey's new solo CD mixes with the engineer Josh Abbey, producer and engineer for Russell Watson, in NYC. Janey's new solo CD "Fallen For Brazil", is a collection of self-penned compositions and one cover of “This Masquerade”. Her songs are new additions to the already colorful existing palate of exotic, Brazilian music. With the embellishment of Portuguese background vocals by Michael Sembello and the acoustic guitar work of Bruce Gaitsch, she weaves a sexy collection of bossa novas. Flutes by Dave Boruff, vibes by Alex Poston and the bass of John Patitucci add a whole new level of sophistication. The timeless string arrangements of Boh Cooper and Janey brush each song with beautiful strokes of color. The string players are Nashville’s finest led by David Davidson, concertmaster of Orchestra Nashville.
In addition to the above-mentioned solo effort, Janey will perform in NYC again with George Benson for a concert "A Tribute to Nat King Cole" November 10th at Lincoln Center. In February of 2008 (February 15th, 2008), Janey sang background vocals for George Benson in L.A. for a special Nat King Cole tribute concert at the Walt Disney Concert Hall. Janey again joined George in June of 2008 for more concerts at Chastain Park in Atlanta and Wolf Trap in Virginia where she was also featured singing the duet “Unforgettable” with George.
