Janine Santana

Of Puerto Rican descent, Via Brooklyn, NY and Trenton, NJ Janine Santana has had a deep love for Afro-Cuban/ Caribbean traditions and Jazz for as long as she can remember. The recent debut of Soft as Granite was born from her relentless drive to have something personal to freely express. “I closed my eyes, obeyed my muse and, fear or no fear, leapt into the fire of this idea. I had always been a side-man (er, side-woman) and this is my first outward expression of my own ideas after keeping it rather tight & quiet for many years. My hands and my drive to keep learning this art really are soft as granite...” Collecting musical heroes and friends from around the country and her current home in the Colorado Front Range, Janine led a tight, creative rotating group with such luminary players as Richie Cole, Jose Madera and local pros such as Jeff Jenkins, Paul Romaine, Kim Stone, Kenny Walker, Brad Goode, Greg Gisbet, Wendy Fopeano and many others.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
