Jane Monheit

At the tender age of 20, New York vocalist Jane Monheit was the first runner-up in the 1998 Thelonious Monk Institute vocal competition, winning a $10,000 scholarship to further her musical education. Judges couldn't exactly place her sound, which blended natural elegance with a potent yet impressively controlled presentation, and by 2000 Monheit had joined Diana Krall as one of the highest-touted female talents in jazz. That May she signed to N-Coded and released her debut, Never Never Land. Angelic and conservative, Monheit's structured set of ten popular standards illustrated her still-emerging vocal talents. Come Dream with Me arrived in 2001; it consisted of several standards as well as a few lesser-known jazz compositions. The album wasn't as widely praised as her debut, but her growth as a performer was still evident. Since that time she has released several albums, including In the Sun in 2002, Taking a Chance on Love in 2004, the holiday-themed Season in 2005, and Surrender in 2007. In 2009, Monheit released the album The Lovers, The Dreamers and Me which featured her version of the classic Muppets ballad "The Rainbow Connection." A year later, Monheit returned, this time on Emarcy, with Home. In 2013, she released her ninth studio album, the Gil Goldstein-produced Heart of the Matter. ~ MacKenzie Wilson, Rovi

APPLES TO ORANGES, BUT MAKES ME FEEL AS THO'
A NANCY LaMOTT IS WITH US. WOULD BE GOOD TO
HEAR HER WITH CHRISTOPHER MARLOWE.
Jane can magnify a melody with the precise inflections of her voice. She can work any piece to pure perfection.

Have seen her a few times and she only seems to get better..Woul d love to have heard her with a Nelson Riddle arrangement. .
I'm a fan. Truly, one of the best !!!
Great voice! She does have some incredible renditions of some classic songs. Two that stick out are He's Just My Bill and Somewhere Over the Rainbow. I would love to hear her in concert sometime.
Listened to her for years and finally got a chance to see her play at he Blue Note last year and loved it. Her voice was even better in person. So controlled and yet powerful.

Enjoy listening to her even more now.

What a version of Somewhere Over The Rainbow. The BEST
I have seen her perform half a dozen times, and she is almost always spot on, her band is great, too. She does interesting arrangements for old standards, and I seem to see her in a new light with every concert.
I love to listen to Ms. Monheit. Have trouble watching her perform. Her voice is so amazing and sweet. Her physical personna is more like a seductress. It's been pretty hard for me to reconcile these two very different images. I would recommend a great stylist. My opinion only.
american treasure..
Bought her first CD when it came out in 2000. Been a sold fan since then; although, I haven't always liked every chart on every CD. However, on the whole, she has grown from one strength to the next. She is dynamite in concert.
Proudhawkart . / NO SOUL? Listen to her sing Blame It On My Youth

She has that very pure, open sound of Ella.
proudhawkart
Obviously a wonderful voice but, she just doesn't seem to have any soul to me. There is just some intangible thing that's missing. Maybe she'll develope it. I hope so because the rest of the package is there.
Wow. I am a new fan. Beautiful, Jane!
Piccoy
Saw her at the Blue Note.I fell in Love.
Love her voice.
beautiful
USDANITE UNITE~- awesome that she went to USDAN music camp
Jane's version of I Wish You Love is one of my favorites. I saw Her at the Catalina Jazz Club in Hollywood. She finished the night with Over the Rainbow, what a talent!
vanwal63
first heard her sing Over the Rainbow on Sky Captain movie and was instantly in love with her voice.

Saw her with John Pizzarelli last night at Cal State Northridge -- Amazing!!!
setonspecial t i e s
Love her voice- and a real singer of the old school
rspellman
great styling - I love her voice
One word Lush and soft like the black velvet dress I dance the Tango with recently.
Just saw her live in Annapolis - what a talent
I backdoored into being a Jane Monheit fan. I heard her duet with Michael Buble, and got curious. I was a huge fan of I Won't Dance. Now, I want the whole catalogue!
Sterile

I agree with John. One of the best live performances I ever witnessed!

I've been a fan for a long time. For those of you in the Louisville area, she is giving a Christmas program at the Ogle Center at IUS in New Albany, IN on Fri. Dec.2 at 7:30. (502-584-777 7 )

Just plain luv it!!!
johnbsmith
Perfect pitch and great interpretati o n . . . J a n e ' s fantastic!
If you like Jane, give a listen to the late Nancy LaMott. Tragically early death, but she left a treasure trove of great music for us. When I heard Jane's "Blame It On My Youth" just now I ambled over to see it were, as I expected, Nancy. It wasn't, but it surely COULD have been.
Nice
I have to hear Jane singer "Waters of March" every Spring...or it's not Spring.
"Like a lover",Jane at her best...
Monheit and Krall are at the top of their game.
THIS SOUND IS MELLOW AND RELAXING.
my favorite jazz singer!
Yea--SHE'S GOOD!!
Too bad for you Zesty; she wouldn't give you a single look.
brett.olsen3
Caught her at the Birdland in NY in Oct. Thanks to my friends for taking me with. She sounds even better live!
She has a distintively unique sound! Sultry and playful!
Just "found" her, too....absou l u t e l y superb!
ronmilan
Nicely done.
tcole265
Do not know this name..She sounds as if I should know this name. Not quite C. Connor or J. Christy or Ella but they are not like Jane Monheit either. I will try to get to know her as time passes!!!!!
We saw her this weekend in Great Neck and it was wonderful concert.She has fantastic voice.
