SOPHISTICATED FUSION ~ RETRO & MODERN MIX
Jean Therapy offers a sophisticated fusion of Jazz, Rock, Latin & Retro Soul. They draw upon a musical catalogue with a complex history - classic jazz-rock fusion, staples from the late 60's to mid 70's, standout contemporary hits, and updated jazz standards. Slightly off center, yet hauntingly familiar - there is a tongue-in-cheek nostalgia to this unique cover band's repertoire. It's fun. It's adult. It's unexpected.
"We have a lifetime of experience and influences that converge in an unusual mix. For us, it's all about a multigenerational mash-up of our parents' music, the diverse music of our own generation, and our kids' modern music. As a band we gravitate to the lesser played covers - aiming slightly off center - towards a target that's not easy to define. It's a musical space with a complex history and haunting appeal - a space everyone loves to revisit and celebrate. Like someone said - it's that amazing moment when you hear a song you haven't heard in years and you still know every word. - and you love it!" - Jean Lenke
Jean Therapy celebrates the sophistication of master musicians like Steely Dan, Joni Mitchell (Shadows & Light), Santana, Burt Bacharach, Stevie Wonder & Sergio Mendez with their own modern interpretations of yesteryear tunes. The collaborators also love to play with classic jazz standards and upbeat songs of today - often stripping more modern pieces down to their smooth roots. Musically partnered for ten years, vocalist Jean Lenke and guitarist Dan McKay head up this music project. Their musical chemistry is evident in the interplay and dynamics of the group's performances - whether as an acoustic duo, jazz combo, or as the full six-piece jazz-rock band.
"The music we play is part of our collective DNA. It's a mixture of the popular music we grew up on through the 70's and the music that our parents played on the AM radio, ubiquitous, always there as we drove to the shore in the back of our parent's station wagon. Whether you love it or hate it, songs like 'Walk on By' & 'Its Too Late' are imprinted in our brains." - Dan McKay
