"Everything I'm singing now is a reflection of me truest self," says Jane Monheit. After all this time in the industry, after touring for 13 years, it's time to just be me, with complete and utter freedom.
An extraordinarily gifted jazz vocalist whose sincere and romantic interpretations of exceptional songs has made her a favorite in both the jazz and cabaret worlds, Jane Monheit has garnered numerous accolades in the past decade. Her first album, Never Never Land, was voted top debut recording by the Jazz Journalist's Association and stayed on the Billboard jazz chart for over a year. Subsequent albums either charted high, or in several cases, debuted at number one, and yielded two Grammy nominations in the Best Instrumental Arrangement Accompanying Vocals category, recognizing the work of Vince Mendoza on In The Sun and Taking A Chance On Love.
In addition to her own recordings, Jane has worked alongside the likes of Terence Blanchard, Tom Harrell, and Ivan Lins.
