Jane Monheit - Taking a Chance on Love
Written by Nicholas Jennings    PDF Print E-mail

Jane Monheit - Taking a Chance on LoveMonheit’s been overshadowed by Norah Jones and Diana Krall in the jazz diva department. But with her fourth album, the New Yorker delivers a formidable challenge. Produced by Peter Asher and Al Schmitt, this collection of MGM musical standards finds Monheit scatting, teasing and soaring her way through material by Cole Porter, George Gershwin and others, injecting each chestnut with fresh emotion. And her sassy duet with Michael Bublé, on Jerome Kern’s “I Won’t Dance,” is a bright, horn-driven gem.
