FEINSTEIN'S AT LOEWS REGENCY, the nightclub proclaimed "Best of New York" by New York Magazine and "an invaluable New York institution" by The New York Post, will continue its 10th Anniversary season with the debut engagement of acclaimed jazz singer JANE MONHEIT. Her new show which celebrates the release of her new Concord Records CD The Lovers, The Dreamers and Me runs from January 20 to February 7 at the Regency Hotel (540 Park Avenue at 61st Street).
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 Porters Get Out Of Town, Jimmy Dorseys Im Glad There Is You, Leonard Bernsteins Lucky To Be Me, William C. Barnes Something Cool (the June Christy classic) and the Brazilian gem, No Tomorrow, by Ivan Lins. The disc, her ninth album, was produced by jazz veteran Matt Pierson.
Jane Monheit released her debut album, Never Never Land, in 2000 which remained on the Billboard Jazz chart for over a year and was voted Best Debut Recording by the members of the Jazz Journalists Association. Her second release, Come Dream With Me, came just a year later and landed atop the Billboard Jazz charts and also earned a Grammy nomination for Vince Mendoza for Best Instrumental Arrangement Accompanying Vocals (as did 2003s In The Sun for Mendozas Arrangement of Since Youve Asked). Monheits 2007 critically-lauded CD, Surrender, debuted at number one on the Billboard Jazz chart as well, and she continues to tour and perform in front of sold-out audiences worldwide. Said Time Magazine of Monheit, Jane Monheit cant miss. She has, in a word, everything.
