Getting to Here is an intimate six track introspective and soulful musical journey that delivers solo guitar interpretations of jazz standards “All the Things You Are,” “Dindi,” and “Spain” (a tribute to the profound influence Chick Corea’s music has played in Janson’s artistic musings). Getting to Here also features original compositions “I Should Have Just Waved Hello” and “Blues for Joe” (dedicated to Joe Pass), and a stellar cover of the obscure guitar-cult favorite “Lamentos do Morro” by Garoto.

There aren’t many jazz guitarists today focusing on solo guitar, but for Janson, playing solo jazz guitar is both his passion and love - he is inspired by the solo guitar works of players like Pat Metheny, Kurt Rosenwinkel, and Wolfgang Muthspiel - with a humble nod to jazz legends such as Joe Pass, Earl Klugh, and Jim Hall.

Getting to Here was produced by Eric Conn. Recorded and mixed in 2022 by Brandon Bell at The Cabin Studio, Nashville TN.
