Jane Monheit | The Lovers, The Dreamers and Me [Concord, 2009] Jazz Vocals
The Lovers, The Dreamers And Me
, Jane Monheit’s eagerly anticipated new CD, is set for release on Concord Records January 20th, 2009. An ode to songwriters past and present whom Monheit greatly admires, The Lovers, The Dreamers And Me is a sumptuously sung passionate song cycle of 13 tracks produced by jazz veteran Matt Pierson. The Lovers, The Dreamers And Me
is Monheit’s ninth CD and will be accompanied by a world tour starting in New York City on release date.
The Lovers, The Dreamers And Me features the songs of contemporary songwriters such as Fiona Apple (“Slow Like Honey”), Corrine Bailey Rae (“Like A Star”) and Paul Simon (“I Do It For Your Love”), alongside such jazz and pop classics as Cole Porter’s “Get Out Of Town,” Jimmy Dorsey’s “I’m Glad There Is You,” Leonard Bernstein’s “Lucky To Be Me,” William C. Barnes’ “Something Cool” (the June Christy classic) and the Brazilian gem, “No Tomorrow,” by Ivan Lins.
“I wanted to do something different with this record,” says Monheit, “and so I chose songs that meant a lot to me in many different ways and from a wide range of songwriters and genres – from female artists my age to celebrated legends.”
