Get The Season NOW! 22 Dec. 2005
By Dr. Christopher Coleman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I dunno, I think if you're overly concerned about the cover photography and the other paraphenalia, you might just be missing what's most important about the CD, the music. Jane Monheit's The Season is quite simply the best Christmas CD I've heard in a long, long time. I have to admit that i'm not overly fond of the opening song, This Christmas--it's just a generic jazz arrangement with nothing special. But with the opening notes of Merry Christmas Darling the CD really picks up. Monheit has amazing timbral control of her voice, you can hear the smile in her voice, and the longing. The Man With the Bag gets a terrific arrangement and Monheit shows her rhythmic flexibility. Moonlight in Vermont follows--I suppose this is why the CD is called "The Season" instead of "The Christmas Season"--it's one of Monheit's quiet ballads, with some wonderfully subtle guitar work by Miles Okazaki. Next, Leroy Anderson's Sleighride gets one of its best interpretations ever, uptempo and jazzy and smart--a real gift for this overplayed warhorse. Another standard, Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas gets another extraordinary performance--Monheit sings the introduction without any accompaniment, and the whole is incredibly touching. It's done at a quite slow tempo which lets Monheit use her timbral control to great effect--she really means the words she's singing. A medley of I Love the Winter Weather and I've Got My Love To Keep Me Warm follows, making a great contrast with the previous song. The Christmas Waltz has some nice guitar and vibes work--again the contrasts between the arrangements and songs shows real musicianship. Speaking of contrasts, the highlight of the disc is I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day in a simple duet between Monheit and guitarist Okazaki--it's timely and touching, and nothing on Diana Krall's Christmas CD comes close to the emotional power of this performance. It's worth the purchase price of the CD for this 3 minute song alone. Santa Claus is Coming to Town gets a somewhat uptempo jazzy arrangement, with some very fun scat singing and melodic elaborations by Monheit. The CD closes with a song I'm not familiar with, My Grown Up Christmas List--again, it's so touching and emotionally gripping. This is a wonderful CD, a must-have for your collection. I'd recommend it even if you never celebrate Christmas--it's simply great music.

Destined to Become a Holiday Classic 2 Nov. 2005
By J. Cummings - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I've been a big fan of Jane Monheit since her first release and am always amazed at her vocal range and wonderful interpretation of standards. Being a lover of both Christmas and Jane, I was excited to hear that she was recording a Holiday album and I must say that this release lives up to all of my expectations. As for the first reviewers comments, I can only say that it would be ludicrous to put the same emotion into a Christmas song as a Cole Porter song. Why would you sing a song about a fat man with a sack on his back in the same manner as a song about a love affair gone bad? And yes, she is sexy. She was in her previous releases too.

Merry Christmas Everybody!!! 25 Nov. 2005
By Kristin Eriksen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Oooh, I just love this album more and more each time I listen to it. I swear, I've probably listened to the entire album about 35 times already, and I find it to be brilliant. I light a Christmas scented candle, sneek under a blanket and pick up one of my favorite books while looking at the snow falling outside my window. And to make the evening complete I put on Jane Monheit's Christmas album in the background. What a perfect evening! Christmas is finally around the corner :-) Have fun listening to this wonderful album, guys, I sure am!

Don't buy if you have iPod 15 Nov. 2005
By Tooth Doc - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
The songs on the CD are great. Jane Monheit has a beautiful voice and she performs several christmas classics well. This "enhanced" version is horrible however. Sony has "enhanced" this version of the CD so that you cannot import the music into iTunes and then subsequently play it in your iPod. You can only use it in Sony digital players.

"You And I . . . And Moonlight In Vermont" 27 Nov. 2007
By Rebecca*rhapsodyinblue* - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Jane Monheit is very good at dramatizing the sentiments behind a song. This is particularly true with her dramatically beautiful interpretations of the Christmas songs in "The Season," a very well-produced CD which offers the kind of Christmas repertoire that keeps getting better as you listen to it year after year.

Produced by Jane Monheit herself with Al Schmitt, they chose the absolute best musicians from the world of jazz headed by a creative arranger, Rob Mounsey together with Michael Kanan (piano/keyboards), Dave Mann (sax), Rick Montalbano (drums), Mike Okazaki (guitar) and Dave Samuels (vibes), among others.

With an unparalleled arrangement by Rob Mounsey, Jane Monheit's persuasive rendition of "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas" is simply splendid. It starts with a capella intro of "I'll Be Home For Christmas." Ms. Monheit's voice is an instrument by itself. Even without an accompanying instrument, her voice shines through. The medley of "I Love The Winter Weather/I've Got My Love To Keep Me Warm" is so enlivening and refreshing.

Her delicate and refined rendition of "Moonlight In Vermont" written by John Blackburn and Karl Suessdorf is one of my favorite tracks. It is so lovely and spellbinding! What interpretation and musicianship! I haven't been to Vermont yet but with this song, I'm dreaming of visiting this place someday and experience its enchanting "moonlight and snowlight."

"Pennies in a stream
Falling leaves of sycamore
Moonlight in Vermont
Icy finger waves
Ski trails on a mountainside
Snowlight in Vermont

Telegraph cables, they sing down the highway
And travel each bend in the road
People who meet in this romantic setting
Are so hypnotized by the lovely ...

Evening summer breeze
Warbling of a meadowlark
Moonlight in Vermont
You and I and moonlight in Vermont"

The rest of the highlights include gorgeous interpretations of "The Christmas Waltz," which features Dave Samuels on vibes, "Santa Claus Is Coming To Town," "Merry Christmas Darling" and "Sleigh Ride."

In addition, her version of a meaningful song "My Grown-Up Christmas List" is just superb. It can stir up emotions with its luxurious backdrops of violins, violas and celli. Special mention goes to Concert Master Elena Barera, who did a great job in making this final track stand out. If you love this song, please check out another great version from Amy Grant in 20th Century Masters: The Best of Amy Grant - The Christmas Collection.

I invite the listeners to immerse themselves in this breathtaking Christmas music from this fabulous album and let it be a part of your Christmas parties, family reunions and gatherings.

With my heartfelt recommendation for your listening pleasure this Yuletide Season.
