“I wanted to return “Home” to doing what I love best,” says Jane, “Getting back to my roots. For me, there’s nothing like singing a jazz standard and giving it new life through one’s own interpretation; bringing it to a new audience in a whole new and different light.” –Jane Monheit
Jane Monheit -//- Home [Emarcy/Universal Records, 2010]
Los Angeles, California. “Home,” Jane Monheit’s eagerly anticipated new CD, is set for release by Emarcy/Universal Records on September 21st, 2010. An ode to the golden age of the jazz standard – the genre which Jane identifies with most – “Home” celebrates the treasured tracks of songwriters and lyricists past and present whom Monheit greatly admires including Rodgers and Hart and Schwartz & Dietz. A sumptuously sung passionate song cycle of 12 tunes self-produced by the modern-day jazz diva, “Home” is Monheit’s tenth CD and will be accompanied by a world tour beginning in the Fall.
Accompanying Monheit on “Home” are long-time Monheit band-members Michael Kanan (piano), Neal Miner on bass and Rick Montalbano on drums, who were joined on the CD by guest artists John Pizzarelli (vocals and guitar), Peter Eldridge (vocals), Frank Vignola (guitar), Joe Magnarelli (trumpet and flugelhorn), Mark O’Connor (violin) and Larry Goldings (piano).
