5.0 out of 5 stars Quality jazz crossover music 25 April 2005
By Peter Durward Harris #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Billie, Ella and Sarah were great singers of their time although Billie is better appreciated now than in her lifetime while Ella and Sarah took a decade or two to really establish their reputations. This is only Jane's fourth album so maybe she has time to win over the critics yet. Jane won me over with her very first album - her magnificent voice enabling her to record wonderful interpretations of classic songs. This album provides further proof of Jane's brilliance.
The set begins in upbeat style with a great version of Honeysuckle Rose (the Fats Waller classic) with simple but brilliantly effective accompaniment by Geoffrey Keezer (piano), Christian McBride (bass) and Lewis Nash (drums). Next comes the first of three Cole Porter songs on the album, the superb ballad In the still of the night, this time featuring an orchestra conducted by Jorge Calandrelli. Third up is the title track, a bight and breezy song featuring five musicians - Michael Kanan (piano), Orlando Le Fleming (bass), Rick Montalbano (drums), Donald Harrison (alto saxophone) and Miles Okazaki (rhythm guitar). The fourth track is an outstanding ballad, Bill, in which Michael Kanan on piano is the only musician backing Jane. It works superbly. Very different but equally brilliant is the next track, I won't dance, a duet with Michael Buble with an eight-piece horn section and three other musicians.
Thus, the first five tracks are all performed with very different musical backings but each is brilliant in its own way. Somehow, the album hangs together despite the contrasts. This highlights the brilliance of the co-producers, Peter Asher and Al Schmitt. Pop and rock music know about Peter Asher - he started as one half of the singing duo, Peter and Gordon, in the sixties before becoming a record producer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful to listen to anytime 3 Feb 2007
Format:Audio CD
This album is a wonderful piece of listening pleasure. This album shows quality throughout from the upbeat and catchy Honeysuckle Rose to the great duet with Michael Buble on I Wont Dance. For me, the wonder of Monheit is the emotional purity of her voice with the phrasing and intonation that leaves you wanting for more.

I disagree with the previous reviewer as Monheit is obviously a lover of many differences genres and not just jazz which can be seen by viewing the tracks from her previous albums that contain standards, easy listening, jazz, Brazilian music, songs from musicals as well as some contemporary songs. And the delivery is far from bland...many of the songs, especially Dancing in the Dark, leave me transfixed and in awe of her voice.

Listen closely and you will find a singer that has a talent and voice unmatched by even Ella Fitzgerald or Sarah Vaughan.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Jazz Crossover Success 26 Jan 2005
Format:Audio CD
We have had a few Mainstream Jazz singers come through in the last couple of years. I have played Katie Melua's album so much and I can't wait for her next album. This album from Jane though nicely fills in the void while I wait. A mixture of a lovely voice and some really good numbers makes this a hugely enjoyable album. I'll be checking out her previous material that's for sure.

4.0 out of 5 stars Better Than Average 25 Aug 2010
By lonniej
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Years ago I saw Monheit on the Parkinson Show and dismissed her as an uninventive routine singer of standards. I recently picked up a cheap 'Best of' set and revised my opinion. Now this. The current batch of female GAS (Great American Songbook) singers will never compete with Fitzgerald but, on her own terms, this CD suggests that Monheit is nearly as good as Krall. (P.S. MUST the publicists try and sell these singers as sultry seductresses? Is the only market that of aging men panting over carefully contrived images?)
