Janiece Jaffe grew up in a musical family. Her mother was a preschool teacher and an opera singer and her father was a professor of classical music. As a child her parents facilitated ‘Opera Nights’ where singing was the mode of conversation at the dinner table!
As a performer, Janiece has worked in collaboration with many great artists, including Freddie Hubbard, Frank Vignola, Keter Betts, Dominic Spera and Al Cobine. Jaffe has the flexibility to work with various groups from Big Band to Duos. She is featured in Scott Yanow’s Jazz Singer: The Ultimate Guide.
