Grammy nominated jazz and pop vocalist Jane Monheit returns to Bay Area Cabaret for her Venetian Room debut - in an evening of her most requested songs, personal favorites, and a few surprises! We'll also be treated to a West Coast exclusive - as Jane gives us a preview of her upcoming Ella Fitzgerald album - in the very room that Ella made famous!
Jane Monheit created a sensation in the jazz world with her very first album, "Never Never Land", in 2000. She has since recorded over 10 albums (receiving two Grammy Award nominations), garnered a global fan base, and collaborated with some of the music industry's biggest names and most respected jazz artists, including Michael Bublé, John Pizzarelli, David Benoit, Ivan Lins and Ramsey Lewis. The sultry voiced jazz singer has also developed a loyal cabaret following, with her expressive storytelling, and intimate connection to her lyrics. Jane says, "Everything I'm singing now is a reflection of my truest self.”
"Endowed with a voice of phenomenal beauty and flexibility." NY Times
"This is a singer who knows exactly what she’s doing. It was evident throughout Monheit’s entire performance – from her thoughtful selection of songs, to her interpretation of lyrics and notes, to her chemistry with the audience and her band. Monheit is someone who loves jazz and loves love, and she has perfected the art of preserving a classic, while still making it contemporary and fresh.” Center on the Aisle
"As a musician, she's a rare songbird indeed - one of the best in her jazz generation." Seattle Times
