Jane Monheit has had plenty of milestone moments in establishing herself as one of today’s best and most important vocalist-musicians. With her new album, The Songbook Sessions: Ella Fitzgerald—the first to be released on her own Emerald City Records—the Long Island native has surprised even herself with her artistic leap.
On this new offering, Monheit pays joyous tribute to Ella while sharing a definitive portrait of herself, guided by her producer, arranger, and trumpet great, Nicholas Payton.

At the young age of 20, Jane became first runner-up in the 1998 Thelonious Monk Institute’s vocal competition behind the late-great Teri Thornton. Her stunning debut album, Never Never Land was voted Best Recording Debut by the Jazz Journalists Association and stayed on the Billboard jazz chart for a year. To date, Jane has released ten studio albums and two best-of compilations, including her most recent release, The Songbook Sessions: Ella Fitzgerald.
