WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Critically acclaimed jazz vocalist Jane Monheit returns to Birdland to celebrate her eagerly anticipated new CD, "Home," which is set to release by Emarcy/Universal Records on September 21st, 2010. An ode to the golden age of the jazz standard -- the genre which Jane identifies with most -- "Home" celebrates the treasured tracks of songwriters and lyricists past and present whom Monheit greatly admires including Rodgers and Hart and Schwartz & Dietz. A sumptuously sung passionate song cycle of 12 tunes self-produced by the modern-day jazz diva, "Home" is Monheit's tenth CD and will be accompanied by a world tour beginning in the Fall. It seems like a lifelong musical journey from the fresh-faced innocence of the "Never Never Land" debut album (2000) to the world-weary maturity of 2009's release, entitled "The Lovers, The Dreamers, and Me," and now her 2010 return "Home." However, Jane Monheit has managed to make the trip in just ten years, establishing herself as one of her generation's most beloved and accomplished jazz vocalists. Monheit's honey-smooth vocals, silky phrasing and natural knack for storytelling have earned her chart-topping success, two Grammy nominations, and a prominent career that shows no sign of slowing.
