The Jazz Session #489: Jane Monheit

It’s been 20 years since the release of Jane Monheit‘s first album, Never Never Land. This week (September 19-21, 2019) Jane is at the Iridium in New York City to celebrate that anniversary. In this interview, we talk about the early days of her career; touring as a homeschooling mom; maintaining good vocal technique; and more.

I’ve been recording conversations with jazz musicians since 2007. I think it’s important work that deserves public support. I’d also like to be able to do it for my living.
