Janelle Reichman, clarinetist and saxophonist, has performed with musical greats such as Doc Severinsen, Les Paul, Anne Hampton Callaway, Sherrie Maricle and DIVA, Dave Liebman, Donny McCaslin and many others.

Janelle first discovered her love of music when she picked up the clarinet in fifth grade, and would go on to become a multi-instrumentalist. As a teenager, Janelle was a member of bands that opened for Nicholas Payton’s ensemble and The Jazz at Lincoln Center Sextet, as well as attended numerous festivals around the country, including the Detroit International Jazz Festival, where Janelle was named Best High School Saxophonist. At age 17, she was accepted into Dave Liebman’s International Saxophone Masterclass, a weeklong intensive workshop located in Liebman’s hometown of Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania.

Janelle’s rich tone and creative melodic ideas landed her a spot in the IAJE (International Association for Jazz Education) Sisters-in-Jazz Quintet, which opened for Nicholas Payton at the 2004 IAJE Conference in New York, and had performances at the Kennedy Center in Washington D.C. as part of the Mary Lou Williams Women in Jazz Festival. Janelle was also accepted into the full-scholarship Henry Mancini Institute for two years running, where she performed with Maria Schneider, Christian McBride, Ray Buretto, Chris Potter, and Vince Mendoza.
