Jane Monheit - Something Cool


Full Track on imeem. <-- What's this?

When Jane Monheit was only 20, she was the first runner-up in the 1998 Theolonius Monk Institute vocal competition. The judges couldn't exactly place her sound, but knew she had incredible talent. By 2000 she was one of the highest-touted female talents in jazz.

She has an awesome voice that I could easily listen to all day. She has excellent range and is great at using the small vocal nuances and inflections that just bring a song to life.

Something Cool is a remake of the classic June Christy tune, but Monheit makes it uniquely her own. This track is off her latest album, The Lovers, the Dreamers and Me, which she recorded while pregnant with her first child.
