It s impossible to overstate the role saxophonist Jane Fair has played for women in Canadian jazz. Without the emergence of the Guelph native in the early 70s as the first Canadian-born female instrumentalist of consequence, there would likely be no Jane Bunnett -- an early student of Fair s -- or Ingrid Jensen. Bassist Rosemary Galloway has been another strong role model for Canadian women in jazz over the past 30 years.
“Jane Fair both as a saxophonist and as a composer, has been a seriously under-exposed and under-valued Canadian talent. This recording finds her at The Cellar in Vancouver, with a trio of that city’s finest. In lieu of saying “What took so long ”, let’s say “Halleluia” for a disc which captures Fair and comrades revelling in the night’s playing.”
“..her idiomatic versatility and her melodic strength as a soloist are greatly admired.”
