Jane Monheit - Home was released on the Emarcy/Universal label and is the tenth release in the storied career of the Grammy nominated jazz vocalist. The release Home provided Jane with the outlet to return to her jazz roots where she gives new life, through her own interpretations, to jazz standards that she admired. Jane also wanted to record a release in the same manner as she performs for her audiences around the world, with a small, tight, intimate band. The combination of her interpretations accompanied by her traveling band results in one of her most memorable releases to date. To learn more about Jane Monheit read Jane Monheit - Interview in the Music Scene section.   

The release Home, as Jane commented "Is a project that I've been thinking about for a long time...an album of songs and a group of musicians that are deeply important to me...this release is clearly me, from the heart." She opens the release with the treasured up-tempo song A Shine on Your Shoes (Arthur Schwartz/Howard Dietz) where she puts her mark on the arrangement with sensational improvisational scat to accompany her amazing vocals. Her second track is There's a Small Hotel (Rodgers/Hart) where her sexy vocals draw the accompanying trumpet and piano to new heights of passion.  

The release continues with This is Always (Harry James) a sultry track where Jane and the band create an expressive and touching arrangement. Tonight You Belong to Me (Billy Rose/Lee David) is a duet with John Pizzarelli; Look For the Silver Lining is the perfect arrangement for Jane's scat, while Jane's interpretation of the ballad I'll Be Around (Alec Wilder/William Engvick) is pure magic. The track Everything I've Got Belongs to You (Rodgers/Hart) is an amusing arrangement where Jane and violinist Mark O'Connor create a lighthearted sound. 

The track It's Only Smoke, the only non-standard on the release, is a moving and poignant track where Jane is accompanied by Peter Eldridge on vocals, whom she studied under at the Manhattan School of Music. Other tracks include The Eagle and Me (Harburg/Arlen),  I Didn't Know About You / All Too Soon (Duke Ellington), Isn't It a Lovely Day (Irving Berlin), and the release closes with While We're Young (Perry Como).
