Product Description

Monheit,Jane ~ Come Dream With Me

Amazon.co.uk

Assured and mature far beyond her years, Jane Monheit proves on Come Dream With Me that the excitement surrounding her 2000 debut Never Never Land was not misplaced. Here, she fulfils that promise, delivering a performance that will enhance her growing reputation. Her voice is fluid yet controlled, rich yet never cloying and she always reaches to the heart of the lyrics she sings. Notable tracks include intriguingly moody versions of "I'll Be Seeing You" backed by Michael Brecker, "So Many Stars" with Tom Harrell and an appropriately wistful "Blame It On My Youth". She also shows that she is unafraid of difficult material, adroitly handling Jobim's "Waters of March". The album's high spots though, are two duets; with Richard Bona on "A Case Of You" and, especially, with Kenny Barron on "I'm Through With Love". Among many new young singers around today, this set places Jane Monheit firmly in the vanguard. --Bruce Crowther

Can you imagine the sense of anticipation I felt when this CD came through my door today? No, of course you can't. I have enthused before via this medium about Jane's first album 'Never Never Land'. In that review I expressed the hope that Jane could meet the exacting standard she had set herself in future. Well she has and more besides.
The sleeve notes say that the first song on the album 'Over The Rainbow' is the first take. The first take!! And on listening to it I can understand why they didn't bother with another. Jane really nails it, so precise and yet so full of meaning. It has been remarked by many the maturity and seeming experience Jane brings to a song, and this is the so here. I hadn't been a great fan of this song until I heard Tori Amos play and sing it on her Unplugged set. I'm an even greater fan now, I sat listening to Jane's version with my jaw open.
'Hit The Road To Dreamland' returns to that sweet low down swing that Jane can put into a song. This one's a foot tapper. 'Spring Can Really Hang You Up The Most' is another wonderful ballard that it can be difficult to bring something new to. I think this recording is a success, it's not over done, just mellow letting the music and the words speak for themselves.
'Waters Of March' is renound not only as difficult to sing, but hard to listen to if not done well. I could hear every word, every note clear as day. This one gave me a big grin, Jane obviously knows exactly where to breathe to keep the swing going. As the producer, Joel Dorn says, she sings it the way Jobim intended. There's a lovely playful edge to it, which really hits the spot.
I had enjoyed both 'I'm Through With Love' and 'I'll Be Seeing You' on Steve Tyrell's album 'A New Standard'.

And that's exactly why it isn't getting my full 5 stars. Jane's "people" must have told her that with a voice as beautiful as hers, she should focus on ballads and the odd mid-tempo song that serve to showcase it song after song. Only one track on this album is really up-tempo, but being able to be good at that too is also what being a good singer is all about, certainly if you aspire te be or become a "jazz" singer. I liked several songs very much, certainly "Over the Rainbow" and "The waters of March". But for the life of me I can't imagine why there is so much enthusiasm about her version of "I'm through with love". Although Marilyn Monroe as a singer doesn't even come close to Jane Monheit, in terms of getting into the song and translating that feeling into music ms Monheit can still learn a few things from her. But apart from that, a lot of people will get a lot of listening pleasure out of this album.

Despite the PR puff which compares her to Ella- a comparison I find faintly absurd, because no-one could swing with as much soul as Ella could- Ms Monheit's talent, is to be able to invest immaculate beauty into slow ballads. (If anything she resembles Peggy Lee in the extraordinary unaffected, yet stylish way that she handles ballads) If she does have a talent for uptemp material, it has yet to be exploited, or even discovered...
The outstanding track is 'Spring can really hang you up the most' a beautiful track in its own right, but she embellishes it with tremendous feeling. It evokes the late Stan Getz's beautiful interpretation, from the mid 80s.
The old chestnut, 'Over the Rainbow' sounds fresh, helped by Kenny Barron, as she is throughout, and 'Blame it on my Youth' is exquisite. The cover of 'A Case of You' is a little derivative of Joni Mitchell's phrasing, but still moving.
Jane takes you on a wonderful trip, and it's difficult to return....

This singer has the most delightful voice - listen without prejudice, and you will not be disapppinted! She is easily head and shoulders above many other contemporary female singers attempting to warble their way through classic vocal standards. She is the class act.

Monheit might look attractively young but she's been around for some years. I had ignored her. Fitgerald and Holiday were all I needed. i expected little from Monheit - the phrasing to be unadventurously dull, the interpretaions straightforward chat-show interlude stuff. Restaurant background music. Shame. Wrong. Big mistake. A 'Best Of' prompted me to purchase this and I'm not disappointed. She chooses quality songs and sings them so well. I never thought that I would like anyone singing 'Spring Can Hang You Up The Most' other than Mark Murphy but she does that great song justice. from me, no praise could be higher. Not quite five stars but near.
