About the artist:
What else would you expect from a girl born to the legendary composer Henry Mancini and a professional vocalist mother? Monica Mancini grew up in Los Angeles and made her first professional performance at age 14. Having been surrounded by music, Monica began singing on her father's records. Soon, others wanted Monica to be a part of their acts. She found her first job at an open call, singing for Peter Marshall.

Opting out of college, Monica eventually worked with John Davidson, Vikki Carr, and Linda Carter. She later provided back-up for Michel Jackson, Dolly Parton, Kenny Rogers, and Quincy Jones. She has also been featured on movie soundtracks, including Batman, Edward Scissorhands, and Armageddon. She has also toured and performed with Bill Conti and Doc Severinsen and with orchestras such as the Chicago Symphony, the Buffalo Philharmonic, and the London Metropolitan Orchestra.

In 1998, Monica released her self-titled debut album to rave reviews. Also in 1998, PBS aired a concert special on network television. In 2000, Mancini released Dreams of Johnny Mercer. In 2002, she staged a "Mancini At The Movies" show at the Regency in New York.

Muze PNote Arranger: Henry Mancini.
Muze PNote This 2004 album features new interpretations of composer Henry Mancini's music performed here by a Los Angeles studio orchestra and various guest artists. Mancini's own daughter Monica Mancini sings on this release, and her deep voice single-handedly propels the orchestra on several of these cuts.
Muze PNote Mancini's most popular compositions are included here, among them the sleek "The Pink Panther Theme" and the suspenseful "Peter Gunn Theme." "Days of Wine and Roses" (from the movie of the same name) is one of the highlights of this set, with the younger Mancini's vocals invoking the affection inherent in Johnny Mercer's lyric. "Moon River," the most enduring on this album, features the gorgeous harmonica playing of Stevie Wonder and the carefully harmonized vocals of Take 6. Together these artists bring great depth to this already-penetrating work. Overall, ULTIMATE MANCINI, a tribute both reverent and forward-looking, will remind listeners of the indelible beauty of this composer's catalog.
