If there's one thing the recent work of Jane Monheit proves, it's that maturing doesn’t mean losing freshness and immediacy. Now more than a decade into a scintillating career, the thrush might not be trying to invoke the nubile mermaid image she once projected, but she’s still performing with verve and impeccable instinct. She has always sung ballads with an understanding beyond her years, and that hasn’t changed one iota: Just when she seems to have lofted the final breathtaking note, she inevitably adds something astonishing.
