"Since the five voices - Janice Jarrett, Sunny Wilkinson, Bob Joyce, Rocky Davis and Leila - that make up the contemporary jazz singing group Borrowed Time sound so good, you have to wonder why this exceptional band isn't heard from a lot...The talented members have their share of work, so club dates aren't always easily arranged. That's why this one-nighter at the Alleycat is worth noting. It's the band's first appearance in an annum and judging from voices floating seamlessly in and out of the forefront of Judd Miller's "Coast Highway," the snappy, Latin spirit of Pat Murphy's "Baile," the thick cloudy vocal shapes on George Cables' "Blue Nights" - time has done nothing but improve Borrowed Time." Zan Stewart, L.A. Weekly Pick of the Week



“A group so captivating and vivacious as Borrowed Time is bound to be heard from. It’s an exciting, polished jazz vocal ensemble whose five members can easily handle any contemporary style from hard-edged jazz-rock to sensitive ballads.... These artists listen to each other and they are amazingly precise....Most (tunes) were arranged by Jarrett who chooses warm, pleasing harmonies.” Zan Stewart, Los Angeles Times

Former member of the group, who has become one of the most vital members of Michigan's outstanding community of jazz educators & performers, Sunny Wilkinson, says of her work with Jarrett from LA: I had the privilege of singing in her vocal group "Borrowed Time" for 12 years in Los Angeles. I learned volumes from her about music, production, arranging & musicianship. She elevated my taste in music, helped create my style & deepened my musicianship. She is a remarkable musician & teacher.”
