CCM highlights alumni guest artists who will return to campus for the Sesquicentennial Alumni Showcase in a series of alumni spotlight stories.
Clarinetist and saxophonist Janelle Reichman (BM Jazz Saxophone, 2005) returns to CCM to perform Fats Waller’s Ain’t Misbehavin’ and Harry Warren’s There Will Never Be Another You at the Sesquicentennial Alumni Showcase on April 21!
Reichman has performed as a featured soloist all over the world with renowned ensembles such as Doc Severinsen and his Tonight Show Band, the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis, the DIVA Jazz Orchestra and many more. Originally from Ann Arbor, Michigan, Reichman received her BM from CCM where she studied with Rick VanMatre. She later attended the Manhattan School of Music, quickly after which she embarked upon an exciting and diverse musical career in New York City, where she remained for a decade. Her musical work in NYC ran the gamut from the New Orleans sounds of the Red Hook Ramblers, to the soulful grooves of the rhythm and blues band ON THE SUN, to the Broadway jazz musical After Midnight — and everything in between.
Reichman’s debut solo album, Middleground, has received rave reviews. In 2016 she was a featured clarinetist at Jazz at Lincoln Center for Moonglow: The Magic of Benny Goodman. In early 2018 she was welcomed back to Lincoln Center to perform as a guest clarinet soloist with the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis for the show Benny Goodman: The King of Swing, alongside respected clarinetists Anat Cohen and Ken Peplowski.
Now happily back in her hometown in Michigan since 2016, Reichman can be heard performing with groups such as accomplished pianist James Dapogny’s Easy Street Jazz Band, the high-energy klezmer band Klezmephonic and her own jazz quintet Janelle Reichman +4, for which she regularly composes new music and with which she frequently performs around Ann Arbor to sold-out audiences. When she’s not playing her clarinet or saxophone, Reichman is most likely designing and building websites for other musicians throughout the Midwest and NYC.
