Born in Baltimore to a family of professional
musicians, Janet Lawson made her singing debut at the age of three and later
in her teens performed with big bands. After moving to New York, she began
her studies with distinguished composer/arranger Hall Overton and made her
debut appearance in the Village Vanguard with the Art Farmer Quartet.
Throughout her career she has appeared with, among other jazz greats, Duke
Ellington, Tommy Flanagan, Joe Newman, Barney Kessel, Milt Hinton, Ron
Carter, Barry Harris, Dave Liebman, David and Lida Baker, Rufus Reid, Clark
Terry, Billy Hart, Cedar Walton, Billy Higgins and Bob Dorough.
Lawson was nominated for IAJE’s 2007 Hall of Fame Award in Jazz Education and is the recipient of numerous awards and honors, including grants from the National Endowment for the Arts, the Rockefeller Foundation, the New York and Pennsylvania Councils on the Arts, and ArtsLink. She is listed in the New Grove Dictionary of Jazz, and the All Music Guide to Jazz. Stanley Crouch, noted critic and journalist, says, “ . . . Janet Lawson is a true musician . . . up next to the musicians with whom she’s working on an equal level.”
