Jane Monheit - The Songbook Sessions: Ella Fitzgerald

Dinner at 6pm, Show at 8pm.

Blessed with a voice of phenomenal beauty (Stephen Holden, New York Times), Jane Monheit has had plenty of milestone moments in establishing herself as one of todays best and most important vocalist-musicians.
With her new album, The Songbook Sessions: Ella Fitzgeraldthe first to be released on her own Emerald City Recordsthe Long Island native has surprised even herself with her artistic leap. Jane had thought about recording an Ella tribute for a long time. Fitzgeralds beloved songbook albums held Biblical importance for her when she was growing up and have never lost their hold on her.

On this new offering, Monheit pays joyous tribute to Ella while sharing a definitive portrait of herself, guided by her producer, arranger, and trumpet great, Nicholas Payton. Once she decided to make the dream project a reality, she had no trouble choosing titles. She jotted down a list of 25 titles almost immediately. She and Payton each narrowed the choices to a dozen and settled on the final list together.

We met in the middle in a lot of ways, Monheit says. It all came down to trust. I had no idea what to expect from Nicholas because we had never worked together, but it was evident from the start that he is a sensitive soul and his knowledge and understanding of history was beyond compare. I felt an instant trust in him I had never felt before with any other producer.
This record is really different, she adds. Its the first Ive made a recording without a label and so I was able to make all the decisions myself. Honestly, when I listened back to the takes, I heard a different singer than Ive heard beforea more mature one. It was a little scary because theres a certain raw quality to some of the vocals but we gave no thought to fixing them. These were the vocals of a 38-year-old woman with a lot of life experience. These tracks really express who I am.

My first priority was to make Jane comfortable, so all she had to worry about was showing up and singing, says Payton, who first met her in Brazil about five years ago and stayed in touch casually. But on the other hand, I wanted to make her a little uncomfortable by pushing her into places she might not push herself. She is so multifaceted. I wanted to showcase a lot of different things she loves to do on any given night with her band that havent necessarily been brought forth on her recordings.
Throughout the recording, Janes gorgeous upward swoop is pure Ella, her earthy wordless phrases pure Sarah, but this album is a classic example of a singer leading her influences rather than being led by them.
