Janette Mason – Piano and Synthesizers
Chris Morris – Drums
Tom Mason – Bass
Red Alert is pianist Janette Mason’s explosive new trio.
A platform for her unique contemporary jazz compositions. Her music has been described as similar to EST and The Bad Plus. Bringing together the dynamic rhythm section of Chris Morris and Tom Mason for this performance this is cutting edge jazz for a new generation.

– The Guardian
“A band leader of pugnacious flair and genuine unpredictability”
James Griffiths – The Guardian
The trio play contemporary jazz with cool grooves, interesting time scapes, funky synths and a cinematic texture. Think Herbie Hancock meets Dave Brubeck. They have recorded two successful albums, including the Parliamentary Jazz Award nominated ‘Alien Left Hand’. The intuitive style and musical expertise of Tom Mason – Bass and Chris Morris – Drums , complement Janette’s unique improvisational approach perfectly to create innovative, energetic and engaging live performances. Janette is known as an outstanding arranger so alongside her contemporary jazz compositions the trio take on arrangements of pop classics such as Cars by Gary Numan and Ashes to Ashes by David Bowie.
