Jane Monheit

When: Wed., Feb. 12, 7 & 9 p.m. and Thu., Feb. 13, 7 & 9 p.m. 2014

On her latest album, The Heart of the Matter, Jane Monheit once again displays her vocal prowess. The Grammy-nominated singer beautifully works within a variety of jazz genres. Bossa nova takes, on tracks like "A Gente Merece Ser Feliz" and the Carpenter's classic "Sing," delicately groove the album, giving it some much needed momentum from slower numbers like the Beatles' "The Long and Winding Road." Her voice smoothly glides along on gentle melodies like "Little Man You've Had a Busy Day," lending itself to a little bluesier, smokier style of jazz. While a full orchestration of strings and winds accompany her on the album, tonight she performs as a duo with her pianist for a more intimate performance. (Stoops)
