"Jane Monheit

It's hard to believe that a scant seven years have passed since a 22-year-old Long Islander named Jane Monheit - now renowned as one of the worlds most beloved and accomplished song stylists - signed her first recording contract, for Manhattan's relatively small but enthusiastically supportive N-Coded label.

Her debut album, Never Never Land, introduced the world to two indisputable facts. First, as the cover portrait demonstrated, Monheit is a stunning, raven-haired beauty. Second, as the ten standards that filled the impressive disc made immediately obvious, Monheit, with her crystalline voice and buttery phrasing, was (and remains) impossible to pigeonhole, simultaneously suggesting the smarts of a seasoned jazz artist and the cunning storytelling skills of the finest cabaret performers.

Since then, two of her recordings have received Grammy nominations, she has known the sweet satisfaction of chart-topping success (several of her discs have debuted at number one), done her festive duty with a stunning Christmas album (The Season), and found herself moving to Sony for her two most recent albums, 2004's Taking a Chance on Love and the subsequent yuletide disc.

Now, for Surrender, her seventh album in as many years, Monheit has opted to follow such estimable vocal predecessors as Rosemary Clooney, Mel Torme, Ray Charles, Curtis Stigers and Karrin Allyson into the artist-friendly fold of the Concord Music family.

For Monheit, Surrender also marks an artistic 'coming home' of sorts, since the evocatively intimate title track was penned by masterful composer, arranger and vocalist Peter Eldridge (of New York Voices and Four Brothers fame), Jane's first and only vocal coach, with whom she studied at the Manhattan School of Music while still in her teens.

Surrender finds Jane in the welcome and familiar company of regular bandmates Michael Kanan (piano and Fender Rhodes), Miles Okaz

Jane Monheit, at the age of 26, is widely considered to be one of the great young voices of jazz and traditional pop. Her professional career began at age 20 after winning the first runner-up prize at the 1998 Thelonious Monk Institute vocal competition. Shortly thereafter she began work on her first album, which came out in 2000. With Surrender - her sixth album and her first for Concord - she truly comes into her own, going beyond the "promising young vocalist" category to emerge at the top of her profession. This album is a superb collection of bossas and ballads, many of which were developed by Jane and her band while on the road. Graced with lush and elegant string arrangements by Jorge Calandrelli and guest appearances by Toots Thielemans, Sergio Mendes (playing piano on his own composition "So Many Stars," which he last recorded with Brasil '66), and a new composition and duet with Ivan Lins, Surrender promises to be Jane's crowning achievement to date, and the beginning of a beautiful partnership with Concord.

Muze PNote At once crisply assertive and lovingly sensual, vocalist Jane Monheit is the jazz equivalent of the young and charming grade school teacher you secretly nurtured a crush on. A sophisticated bombshell of a performer with a voice that is, like her appearance, voluptuous and flawlessly pretty, Monheit has garnered well-earned comparisons to such icons as Ella Fitzgerald and the goddess of vocal pop, Barbra Streisand. In that sense, her sixth studio album, Surrender, is, at first glance, not dissimilar from her past work. Recorded with her working combo including husband and drummer Rick Montalbano, Surrender is a ballads-heavy album that features a mix of jazz standards, reworked pop tunes, and several bossa nova numbers. What is different is the focus and presentation of Monheit. Rather than featuring her here simply as a singer fronting a jazz band, Surrender is a cinematic showcase, a Broadway-sized coming-out party that finds Monheit's voice framed against sweeping orchestration and glossy, Technicolor arrangements. This is Monheit the vocal diva, the superstar. ~ Matt Collar

Bio

Jane Monheit

It?s hard to believe that a scant seven years have passed since a 22-year-old Long Islander named Jane Monheit - now renowned as one of the worlds most beloved and accomplished song stylists - signed her first recording contract, for Manhattan?s relatively small but enthusiastically supportive N-Coded label.

Her debut album, Never Never Land, introduced the world to two indisputable facts. First, as the cover portrait demonstrated, Monheit is a stunning, raven-haired beauty. Second, as the ten standards that filled the impressive disc made immediately obvious, Monheit, with her crystalline voice and buttery phrasing, was (and remains) impossible to pigeonhole, simultaneously suggesting the smarts of a seasoned jazz artist and the cunning storytelling skills of the finest cabaret performers.

Since then, two of her recordings have received Grammy nominations, she has known the sweet satisfaction of chart-topping success (several of her discs have debuted at number one), done her festive duty with a stunning Christmas album (The Season), and found herself moving to Sony for her two most recent albums, 2004?s Taking a Chance on Love and the subsequent yuletide disc.

Now, for Surrender, her seventh album in as many years, Monheit has opted to follow such estimable vocal predecessors as Rosemary Clooney, Mel Torme, Ray Charles, Curtis Stigers and Karrin Allyson into the artist-friendly fold of the Concord Music family.

For Monheit, Surrender also marks an artistic ?coming home? of sorts, since the evocatively intimate title track was penned by masterful composer, arranger and vocalist Peter Eldridge (of New York Voices and Four Brothers fame), Jane?s first and only vocal coach, with whom she studied at the Manhattan School of Music while still in her teens.

Surrender finds Jane in the welcome and familiar company of regular bandmates Michael Kanan (piano and Fender Rhodes), Miles Okazaki (acoustic and electric guitars), bassist Orlando Le Fleming, saxophonist Ari Ambrose and drummer Rick Montalbano (whose connection to Monheit runs deeper than any of her other accompanists - last Spring, they celebrated their fourth wedding anniversary), and the move toward more contemporary material was, she says, ?very intentional. It is where I had naturally been leaning in my own life, and when it?s time to make a record you?ve got to go in and do what?s really feeling right.?
