Jane Monheit

February 21 @ 9:30 pm - 11:00 pm

Join us for Jane Monheit’s return to Birdland on February 21-25 with two sets each evening!

Come What May, her first album in five years, highlights her fresh takes on first-rate standards, with deft interpretations honed after years on the road. “There is a certain comfortability that comes from performing a song night after night to audiences around the world,” she says. “So by the time we finally got into the studio to make this record, I had the luxury of the arrangements being perfectly familiar, rehearsed, and polished. Putting together this project was a smooth, relaxed process and I think that’s reflected in the final product.”

In fact, Come What May is all the more special considering the unique bond that Jane shares with her musicians. “Michael and I go back over two decades,” she continues. “I love that man with all my heart, he’s like my big brother. And then of course our drummer is my husband Rick Montalbano. We’re coming up on our 20th wedding anniversary! It’s always a delight to work together, but this project has a particular resonance. For the last few years we haven’t been able to tour together since our son is in school, and Rick stays home with him. So one bright spot of the pandemic is we’re in the same city so we can make music again together.”

Label co-owner Joel Lindsey responds, “When we first started the label, it was my dream to sign Jane Monheit, so this new record of gorgeous standards really is that dream come true. And the fact that it helps mark her 20th anniversary as a recording artist is such an incredible bonus. The trademark lyricism of her voice, the detail of her interpretations, the sheer joy of her creativity shines brightly here in Come What May. We’re so proud to have this album on Club44 Records.”
