A singer possessed of “a voice of phenomenal beauty” (NY Times), Jane Monheit returned to the Miner stage in July 2017 with music from her 2016 Emerald City release The Songbook Sessions, her tribute to the music of the legendary First Lady of Song, Ella Fitzgerald — her greatest influence.
Monheit has come a long way since her debut at the Thelonious Monk Institute’s 1998 International Vocal Competition, and the stylistic breadth of her eleven subsequent albums clearly shows a love for the Great American Songbook, the Brazilian pop of Ivan Lins and the hits of Paul Simon, Judy Collins, and Judy Garland. But the undeniable compatibility of Monheit’s incandescent instrument with Ella’s mellifluous, evocative voice and genre-defying approach makes this celebration of Fitzgerald, backed by her longtime trio, a match made in musical heaven.
