This is a project co-led by composer/instrumentalists Rosemary Galloway and Jane Fair. The development of a creative chemistry between the members of this group have led to new compositions, producing provocative and engaging material, resulting in an exciting 2011 CD release, Playin’ Jane.
The quintet released a debut CD in Waltz Out, in 2002. Since then, the group has received support from both the Canada Council and the Ontario Arts Council, and has performed at major jazz festivals and clubs all over Canada, to tremendous audience response. Listeners can expect an extraordinary breadth and depth of material from the original compositions offered, contemporary musical landscapes which remain engaging and accessible.


Nancy Walker, pianist, breathes harmonic and rhythmic fire into everything she touches. Drums and bass, Nick Fraser and Rosemary Galloway, provide inspired support and acute responsiveness to match the flow of ideas. Trumpet, Lina Allemano, and saxophone, Jane Fair, bring two distinct approaches to the music that interact to produce both beauty and the unexpected.

The group released a second CD, 'Playin' Jane' in 2010 and continue to play concerts and club venues across Canada.
