Jane Monheit

A Long Island native, Jane Monheit is one of the finest vocalists working today. She has been compared to Ella Fitzgerald, both possessed of an effortless melodicism, expert timing, and a gift for flawless diction. “What I set out to do is take songs that have been done really often  ‘My Funny Valentine,’ ‘Lush Life,’ ‘The Nearness of You’ and present them directly, sincerely, and truthfully.” With its mix of upbeat standards, fresh takes on well-loved ballads, and lesser-known tunes, these performances will be breathtakingly intimate and emotionally raw.


Ms. Monheit has made a career out of silver linings and their pursuit, applying the pristine sensuality of her voice to songs of cozy reverie.” – New York Times
