Not Exactly What I Wanted, But She's Talented
2 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The 24-year-old jazz singer gives a concert in a famous showroom in New York City. Jane Monheit doesn't have the jazzy-type-somewhat smoky voice of a Diana Krall or Norah Jones but she certainly has a great voice, better than those two better-known singers. It's more classically trained. You get more of a straight singer, like a Judy Garland, Perry Como, Bing Crosby or whomever to name three older famous singers. Could Monheit be called a "cronner?"

Anyway, to be honest, I was looking for something with a little more bluesy-type sound. However, there is no debate this young woman can sing.

What I would also liked to have heard is more from the musicians, as they are very professional. Most of the songs are pretty short here, so you don't hear a lot of instrumental stuff.

As professional as her voice is, she looked a bit amateurish talking and always curtsying to the audience. It will be interesting to see how she matures as a performer. With age on her side, she could be an excellent entertainer. She has the looks, too, and I believe the desire to keep perfecting her craft. She gives me that impression.

Since she isn't - or wasn't when this was recorded - a great entertaining, this DVD was used more like a CD the several times I played it after my first look. It's nice music, but not a concert to remember.
