Jane Getz - Boy From Portland

Jane Getz is an American jazz pianist and session musician. Getz learned classical piano as a child and began playing jazz at the age of nine.

In the early 1970s Getz returned to Los Angeles and found work as a studio musician. She recorded country music for RCA Records under the name Mother Hen, and appeared on albums by The Bee Gees, Ringo Starr, Harry Nilsson, Rick Roberts, and John Lennon, among others. During this period, Getz wrote the title track for the 1973 Jimmie Spheeris album The Original Tap Dancing Kid.

Getz went into semi-retirement from jazz at this period, but began playing jazz again in the 1990s. She was with Dale Fielder's quartet in Los Angeles from 1995. Her first jazz record as a leader, No Relation, appeared in 1996.
