Blessed with a voice of phenomenal beauty (Stephen Holden, New York Times), Jane Monheit has had plenty of milestone moments in establishing herself as one of today’s best and most important vocalist-musicians.
Come What May, her first album in five years, highlights her fresh takes on first-rate standards, with deft interpretations honed after years on the road. There is a certain comfortability that comes from performing a song night after night to audiences around the world, she says. So, by the time we finally got into the studio to make this record, I had the luxury of the arrangements being perfectly familiar, rehearsed, and polished. Putting together this project was a smooth, relaxed process and I think that’s reflected in the final product.
