For our wedding reception, we played all standards -- good old love songs. The two female artists we played were Ella Fitzgerald and Jane Monheit. Well, this past Saturday, we got to see (a very wonderfully pregnant) Jane at Scullers Jazz Club in Boston. She was just amazing. She had two shows on Friday and two on Saturday, so she only played about a hour and a quarter (what with being pregnant and all).
Her voice can melt a glacier. She's so smooth and has a master's control. It was just great to hear her in person and to hear her quip with the audience. Thanks, Jane, for a great show! And good luck with the baby!
