Jane Monheit: The Ella Fitzgerald Centennial Celebration
Part of the Starrlight Jazz Series
Additional support provided by Hershey & Denise Garner
Blessed with a voice of phenomenal beauty, Jane Monheit has established herself as one of today’s best and most important vocalist-musicians. But the Long Island native surprised even herself on her newest album – a tribute to Ella Fitzgerald’s beloved songbook. The result is a classic example of a singer leading her influences, rather than being led by them, with earthy wordless phrases and a sound that plays up her incomparable swinging, scatting, girlish side. Monheit is all woman here, pouring herself into the lyrics with sultry savoir faire. Celebrating the 100th anniversary of Ella’s birth, Monheit takes the stage with her longtime band mates to present her interpretation of this musical lioness.
