Thank you for the Open Sky CD
you gave me at Asilomar.
Wow! Wow! Wow!
I have been given quite a few CDs during my
speaking engagements, but none compare to
The professional quality of the production,
the amazing orchestration, and, of course,
your wonderful melodies make this album a
profoundly inspiring work of art.
You have captured the "bittersweet" nature
of life beautifully, and listening to it on
the long drive back to Sedona certainly made
the trip more pleasurable.
Bless you and the work you do.

It occurred to me that perhaps Jeanette
would be interested in turning a poem of
mine into a song.
The very same morning
that I sent my poem to Jeanette,
she awoke with a brand new
melody in her head It was a
perfect fit! "Through divine inspiration and divine motivation, two

I'll start off by saying I
love both your albums Still Point and Open Sky. You have a
wonderful style. There is piano and then there's piano. Your music is truly beautiful. I have often listened
to 'Still Point' to help me get to sleep. Beautiful melodies
on both recordings.
I hope you are working on a
third project or will be soon. Please keep me up to date or what you
will be producing. I will certainly look forward to hearing anything you
New Morning Music/
Sky is arresting. The musicianship and production values are so
good, and the
composition so creatively and flowingly interwoven that the album
demands your attention. And then you are moved.
wonderful new CD, Open Sky,
creates the perfect mood for romance...bravo!

: I listened to Open Sky and Still Point. Energy flows with elegance in
your music. Quietly subdued, yet powerfully empowering.
Have a great career,
~Dr. Seiji Iwata
I have been following your career
since 2000. I first experienced Geoffrey Castle and you at the Urban
Onion's Valentine's Day Dinner in Olympia. I was hooked. I saw you at
the St. Martin's Pavillion and attended the kick-off of your first CD,
Still Point with other performances following. Recently, though, I
enjoyed your talent at the Center of Spiritual Awakening Olympia's Gala
and your CSA performance a couple of Sundays ago.
I just want to tell you that your music is beautiful
and so are you! I have all three of your
CD's and am waiting for another one. You are
so talented. I am a vocalist and I can
appreciate your love of music. Keep sharing
your love with us!

special evening at the Liberty Project
dedication on Alki Beach in Seattle on Sept.
6, 2008, You looked gorgeous performing your
music on the beach as the evening sun set
ever so slowly upon the horizon. Your song,
“ Sun Down” was magical, the concert
enchanting, and you created quite a
sensation! The crowd enjoyed every minute of
I was working late the
other night and heard a cut from Still
Point on my new age music server (Choiceradio.com).
It brought me back to a moment in time (a few years ago) when I was up
on the Cape Breton peninsula in Nova Scotia. One of those sunset moments
when I was pretty much in harmony with earth, sky & water. Your piece
evidenced a profound tranquility with which I immediately identified.
My initial opinion was/is that you are one of
those artists who has a rare gift, so had better get my hands on some of
your work to confirm it. If it is as good as I suspect, I will
definitely reach out for a copy of Open Sky.
Stay well & best regards for your career....
first heard Jeanette's music at the Center
for Spiritual Living in Seattle, WA ..even
as I write this I am overwhelmed by the
beauty and pure love you have put to music,
and how deeply it touched me, each song,
each time I play the CDs, I cannot begin to
thank you for what you've done, what you

My name is Debbie, and I
attend CSL. I bought your Still Point CD a couple of weeks ago
when you were there. I
wanted you to know that it is the perfect music to listen to as I make
my jewelry in my studio. I listened to it for 3 hours straight the
first time...and there was no feeling of repetition. It all
sounded so fresh & new & calming. It helps ground me as I
melodies and unbridled creativity await
listeners on the new gorgeous album from
Jeanette Alexander titled OPEN SKY.
'Common Ground,' one of the album's most
powerful works, is like an ode to lost love
and bittersweet memories. The interplay
between Alexander's poignant piano melodies
and the warm instrumentation of guest
artists Eric Tingstad (guitar) and Nancy Rumbel (oboe) adds to
the song's emotional impact. Alexander's
vivid compositions are equal parts classical sophistication and
romantic abandon - beautiful flights of fancy that set the spirit
free. Highly recommended!
Your magnificent CD, "Walk In The Sun,"
arrived today. Beautiful music, which
improves with each playing. Some recordings
appeal to you on the first go. This was one
of those; although, my enjoyment increased
with each playing.
Some very special melodies and little
flourishes. Thanks for such a stunning addition to the music collection.
I look forward to hearing the tunes played live.
heard a small bit of your music in London and got someone to write
down the title of the CD (Still Point). I then ordered both CDs ,
Still Point and Open Sky . I finally got
around to listening to them, and all I can say is WOW!!! You
really pour your heart and soul into your music. Being a
musician myself, I can really appreciate the feeling expressed in your
songs. And now that I've seen your picture, I can say that
you're personally every bit as lovely as your music! I look
forward to future releases.
~Binder, M .
accidentally found your CDs while
looking for mood music on the internet and
listened to a sample. After hearing 10
seconds of it, I knew I had to have both
CDs, they were exactly the music I wanted!
So that's how I first heard of you. For some
reason, your name jumped out at me on the CD
Baby site, as if I knew you, which is why I
checked out your music.
I played the CDs as soon as I got them, I've had them nearly a month
now. I haven't stopped playing them, every night, all night long! My
husband and I enjoy them so very much, they are very healing, relaxing,
comforting and so beautiful! I can't thank you enough for sharing your
talent for all to enjoy. I'm sure one day you will be doing a live
concert in my town! I can't wait! I just ordered your newest CD, and I
know I won't be disappointed.
Thank you, God bless you and may you continue
to share your heart in music with us. Best wishes,
Still Point - Jeannette has developed a peaceful quality in this cd that seems to hold elements of grace, beauty, and love through
heart-warming piano music. I was looking for music to play during the
dinner portion of our wedding and discovered this album when searching
for other albums by David Lanz and Jim Brickman. I ordered the album and
it provided the backdrop for an elegantly superb dining portion of our
wedding. While Jeannette is not as well known as the other artists, her
music is beyond words. The
entire album is wonderful - my favorites are: "Best of Friends" (a
melding of heart-felt feelings that you might imagine about your best
"Linden" (a flowing piece that holds you with an uplifting feeling)
(to me, reflects the memory of a poignant loving moment - perhaps with a
son or daughter that has now grown up) /
"Year to Live" (a delightful
"dancing inside" piece that invites you to breath)...
I put Open Sky in the player so I could
listen while doing some work on my computer.
My 14 year old, (very teenage) son was (I
thought ) watching the morning news. Halfway
through the first song he said, "wow, that
is such beautiful music." He said that
a few times and finally walked over and
asked, "who is playing that beautiful
music?" Your CD, Open Sky, is just
that, beautiful music. Thank you. I
hope to hear more.
an exceptionally beautiful body of work. It
has a poignant simplicity, and yet a deep
soulfulness. I especially like the track
'Keep the Promise', and both 'Still Here'
and 'Reunion' speak to me deeply. Thank
you for the gifts of your music and your
up the world with her presence and her
music. She is a gift and I was
inspired to write this poem, after hearing
her music for the first time...
Wings of a Dove
Music so pure
Like wings of a dove
Stilling the swill
Capturing a soulful
For joy and heart
A single note
carries the moment
And then another,
Sounds that wake
To a being unopened
Touching a core to
The music paints a
Of places to soar
Places to hold
and of dreams
The mark of a great
artist is that you never get tired of reading their books, finding
something new in their pictures or listening to their music.
My wife and I still love every one of your albums.
There is nothing like them with a morning coffee and a fire. You are
right in our "New Age" collection beside Wayne Gratz and David
I wait anxiously for your next work.
You bring great joy to all that you
do...it shows in your smile, stage presence,
and the way you so reverently caress your
keyboard as you play. You bring great JOY to
all who listen! You bring joy to your
playing and you bring joy and love to your
interaction with your audience and to those
with whom you are sharing your gifts!

I just received a
gift of your CD "Still Point"... it took my soul away!
The pieces on this CD are achingly beautiful.....especially "Sunrise."
Your music is a joy to everyone who would listen! Thank you!

I just received your new CD 'Open Sky' and
the music is incredible. Simple words
cannot express the range of emotions I
experienced as I listened to your new CD,
Open Sky. It moves me, inspires me and makes
me believe in the possibility that once
again there will be a chance for
understanding, peace and love."
Daytona Beach, FL
I received your CDs in the mail
yesterday. Listened to your new one before
leaving the parking lot. The music on your
new CD, 'Open Sky,' is as outstanding as it
was on 'Still Point.' You are a remarkably
inspired artist. I wish you continued
success in all your adventures.
I am listening to your music every day. You have created something
exquisite! Every song of Open Sky touches my heart, stirs it with
longing, hope, melancholy, joy... Thank you so much for bringing your music into our house.
With my blessings,
Walk in the Sun is a beautiful title and the
melody gives me a very spirited feeling. The song, Sun Down,
almost gives me a country feeling. Was this implied? Fantastic If
this was a goal, Well done!

I fell in love with your Still
Point some time ago, and more recently enjoy
your Open Sky. For what it's worth, you've
got my vote for the Just Plain Folks event.
Good luck with the awards, and may the stars
go with you.
