Jane Monheit

When Jane Monheit first performed for SFJAZZ a decade ago, she was a wide-eyed ingénue at the start of a meteoric rise launched by her debut at the Monk Institute’s 1998 vocal competition. There was no doubt about her exquisite voice and supple sense of swing, which became the foundation of a brilliant recording and touring career. Still fresh-faced at 34, Monheit continues to grow as an artist, honing her sound and expanding her repertoire. A self-described obsessive when it comes to her listening habits, Monheit has spent the past several years immersing herself in Brazilian music. Just about every performance now includes songs by Jobim and Ivan Lins, who accompanied her on 2002’s In the Sun. Monheit still listens closely to Ella, Billie and Sarah, but she’s just as likely to draw inspiration from Bonnie Raitt and Joni Mitchell. Her latest EmArcy album Home is a lustrous collection of standards that finds Monheit keeping company with top-flight guests including John Pizzarelli, Mark O’Connor and Larry Goldings. Jane’s 2011 Spring Season show sold out handily, so we suggest early ticket purchase for this Members-only treat.
