W Press Quotes SAYING...


"All musicians play music, but it's rarer the player who's so at home in his craft that he can let the music play him. Jamie Janover is that most precious sort of musician, who seems to create from the very source of music itself. His liquid, haunting, deceptively effortless lines ring with uncanny familiarity, because there are so many traditions flowing through Jamie's dancing hands : Celtic Highland folk forms, modal jazz reflection and odd-time mountain echoes, all in the flux of improvisation.
Jamie's music always sounds fresh because it's always in the process of discovering itself. It can be followed note-for-note with all the intensity a careful listener can muster, but it's fertile explorations weave shimmering backdrops for deep human occupations, like reflection on What Matters and making love."
- Steve Silberman, coauthor of Skeleton Key: A Dictionary For Deadheads (Doubleday)


"I've never seen anything like it - amazing! A very great musician!"
- Trey Anastasio, guitarist, PHISH


"Jamie Janover takes both the idea of dulcimer as drum and the idea of travel through music to their logical extremes".
- Carrie Cromptom, Dulcimer Player News


"A hammered dulcimer wizard!"
-Lawrence Washington, Boulder Colorado's Daily Camera


"His newest disk, "Realms", offers a vast array of instrumental settings for Janover to display his skill ... the disc is a surprisingly complex showcase of unpredictability and ability."
-David Surchuk, The Boulder Weekly


"An artist who scores heavily in the originality stakes is Jamie Janover. He plays the hammered dulcimer, and boy, does he play it! Realms is his (fifth) album to date, and what a gem it is. Janover has an all-star cast of heavy friends including members of Leftover Salmon, String Cheese Incident, Phish and The Jazz Mandolin Project, as well as Darol Anger, Sally Van Meter, Tony Furtado, (Kai Eckhardt and Howard Levy). But rest assured; it's Janover's incredibly diverse and imaginative playing that occupies the limelight. The music he tackles is far more complex and experimental than of most hammered dulcimer players."
-Mick Skidmore, Relix Magazine


Relaxation and beauty are to be found on this album, sided with talented sidemen and an assortment of genres.
-Jambands.com, Christopher Orman


"Excellent fusion knows no boundaries. And this sampling of jazz, rock,funk and folk shakes your moneymaker in delightful ways. Gotta give Jamie Janover an 'A' with creative engineering on the songs (on this CD)."
-TJM, Dirty Linnen - The magazine of folk and world music.
