CD REVIEW: Jana – “Smoke & Mirrors”
By Stacey Board - 05/24/2004 - 05:46 PM EDT

Artist: Jana
Album: “Smoke & Mirrors”
CD Review: The music on “Smoke & Mirrors” is pleasingly difficult to categorize. I hear what
I would describe this as folk rock, new age, r&b pop. It is by no means elevator music or sleep inducing yet it is peaceful and relaxing.

The music is very groove laden and layered. The lyrics are more to create an atmosphere or point the way to a mood than they are literally telling us a story.

Jana does all the writing of words and music and Jeff Tweeter plays all the instruments. I’m quite impressed with his versatility and the way he has shaped the sound. It seems a perfect match to Jana’s poetry and expression.

This is a unique sound that is intelligently written, arranged and played.
