AllMusic Review by Scott Yanow
Pianist Jane Getz (no, she is not related to Stan Getz) caused a stir in the mid-'60s when she performed and recorded with Charles Mingus and Pharoah Sanders, even gigging with the other Getz. Unfortunately, a few years later she dropped out of jazz altogether and became an obscure legend. However, unknown to much of the jazz world, Jane Getz spent the next two decades living in Los Angeles, playing country music and rock quite successfully, recording under the name of Mother Hen and performing behind a variety of pop stars. In the 1990s, she finally returned to jazz. On No Relation, the pianist's long overdue recording debut in jazz as a leader, Jane Getz shows that her improvising talents had grown through the years. Seven of the ten songs are her originals (all but "You Don't Know What Love Is," a swinging trio workout on "Come Sunday" and Dale Fielder's "J. Reese Waltz") and the music falls into the area of advanced hard bop. Joined on the majority of the selections by trumpeter Brian Swartz and either Dale Fielder (who plays the uncredited soprano on "Cowboy Music"), Doug Webb or Phil Vieux on tenor, bassist Darek Oleszkiewicz, and either Fritz Wise or Russell Bizzett on drums, Jane Getz has an opportunity to accompany the younger horn players before constantly stealing solo honors. Mixing together elements of Bud Powell and McCoy Tyner, Jane Getz proves to be a real powerhouse with consistently inventive ideas. Her release is highly recommended.
