“… supremely gifted singer…” – DownBeat
“ I want to get away from the drama, and celebrate what we all loved about Judy…the immense joy she brought through song, and her innate understanding of jazz. She did so much more than break hearts…she put them together again…and that’s what we’re going to be about with this show!” states singer Jane Monheit. 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.
