“The work, the will, the passion, Joani is all the things that inspire. Part of her magic is her fine control of nuances; vocals that range from a whisper to a whip.”
The Globe and Mail

Joani Taylor grew up on the stages of Vancouver nightclubs. While other teenage girls were glued to the radio on Friday nights, Joani was singing her heart out as the opening act for Stevie Wonder at Isy’s Supper Club on Georgia Street.

From clubs to concerts, television shows and film scores, Joani has sung in venues all over the world. Some of the names she’s worked with include; Bryan Adams, Jon Bon Jovi, Tom Jones, Little Richard, David Foster, Miles Davis, Cannonball Adderley, Fraser MacPherson, and Moe Koffman. This distinguished list of influencers, along with years of performing with Vancouver’s top players, has now given rise to Joani’s sixth album, In My Own Voice.

“It's been too long between records for vocalist, Joani Taylor,
who returns to the scene with In My Own Voice, which features nine
tracks she co-wrote. She is effective on the ballads, most notably
Jim's Lament. Taylor updates the Dave Brubeck number, Take 5 with
the help of hip hopper Jay Kin.”
Marke Andrews, Vancouver Sun

Joani’s first love is jazz and she’s been an in-demand performer at the
Vancouver International Jazz Festival many times. Joani was nominated for the National Jazz Awards and her album The Wall Street Sessions received a Juno nomination in 2003.

A prolific writer and vocal arranger, Joani has embraced the art of teaching. An acknowledged jazz master, she has taught classes for singers, musicians and television performers. For Joani, jazz is a vehicle for communicating, and her students have studied in the classroom of her experience, “I teach them to make sure there’s a lot of space for the audience to be part of the song, to really feel the music. Jazz can’t be too serious either – I show them how to use humour to develop intimacy with the audience.”

Joani has just finished filming a dazzling new video for her song, Take 5. Shot in moody sepia tones, it is set in a late night secret party loft on the edge of the city. In an explosion of new-world street style and old world charm, Joani collaborated with edgy young cinematographer Chayse Irvin and a cast of hot young dancers to create a stunning portrait of the timeless jazz standard.

“Jazz is a metaphor for my life” – Joani Taylor

How to be a working musician

Posted on December 31, 2009 at 8:52pm 2 Comments

i hear so much complaining about this subject, i just wanted to lay my practical experience on you. free.



first, three pre-conditions:



1. if you are a very materialistic person, skip this article, i don't think you are going to like what it says.

2. if you don't have the music where you want it art-wise, you might want to go work on that, this article isn't going to help you much either. you will be better off by practicing and studying and working on your music… Continue

Karl Paulnak's address to freshman class at Boston Conservatory



(This is just in case you ever feel that what we do is meaningless or trivial)



Welcome address to freshman class at Boston Conservatory given by Karl Paulnack, pianist and director of music division at Boston Conservatory:



"One of my parents' deepest fears, I suspect, is that society would not

properly value me as a musician, that I wouldn't be appreciated. I had very

good grades in high… Continue

The Jazz Network Worldwide is comprised of all the subsets of the industry worldwide from managers, agents, publicists, venues, festivals, radio stations, studios, musicians, vocalists, etc. and of course fans.  You can use it as a database by utilizing the tool bar for what you seek to connect and network with.

Jaijai, what a wonderful mission you've undertaken to create such a place for artistic minds to meet and share their hearts. A place to renew faded determinations, and revive lessened momentums. A place to display our wares and reconfirm to one another that we actually are on the right track.

I commend you, Jaijai, for caring so much that you created this castle of the heart for all of us. I want to share my praise for all of the new friends as well as old friends that I've met and will meet here in our castle. Here we can garnish the where-with-all, the strength, the conviction, and the selflessness through our symbiosis, to share our gift to the world with an unbiased agenda.

My mentor, Daisaku Ikeda says of art: "A beautiful flower delights and refreshes the hearts of all people equally, no matter what soil it grows in. That is the power of beauty. The same is true of great art. It is this spirit that the German poet Heinrich Heine sang of when he wrote that once the peapod bursts open, the sugar peas inside are for everyone to enjoy."

Let's be audacious, my friends!
