An intoxicating jazz singer with a warm and supple voice and perfect pitch, Jane Monheit has the chops to do just about anything she chooses. Audiences have long responded to the fearless honesty that marks her performances and her 10-year recording career.  She sings like she knows what the song is about and has lived its story. Monheit is the real deal. She will help us celebrate Women in Jazz on November 15th and will be in residence for three days as part of the Billy Taylor Jazz Residency.
