Editorial Reviews

From the Artist

"I wanted to return "Home" to doing what I love best," says Jane, "Getting back to my roots. For me, there's nothing like singing a jazz standard and giving it new life through one's own interpretation; bringing it to a new audience in a whole new and different light."

5.0 out of 5 stars No strings attached. September 25, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
In this outing Jane re-affirms that she is, primarily, a jazz singer; and does so in a setting that allows her to fully display her skills. Accompanied by no more than five instrumentalists on any track, in fact 2 of the 12 tracks are duets while 4 feature Monheit backed by just her regular working trio (piano,bass,drums). The content? All, save for one contribution from pianist/composer Larry Goldings, are fine selections from the Great American Songbook. The result is a recording that closely reflects what one would hear at one Jane's live shows. I might add that since giving birth to her son, Jane's voice has actually improved, gaining a couple of notes at the lower end of her range and maturing a bit. I like!

4.0 out of 5 stars Another great CD...Love it!!! December 2, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Jane Monheit demonstrates her well-deserved place as a silky-smooth jazz singer with the release of "Home," a compilation of songs almost exclusively from the Great American Songbook. It is her first album with Emarcy/Universal, and also the first album she produced herself. With this, she was driven to realize her vision of what the CD should be, and to do what she wanted to do in the absence of anyone's assistance. Well, except for her band, consisting of Michael Kanan (piano), Neal Miner (bass), and Rick Montalbano (drums, and husband). With the new addition of their son to their pack, along with the return to the standard songbook, the title "Home" can be interpreted in multiple levels.

Though admittedly this CD was not immediately my to-die-for favorite from Jane, I listened to it a lot on several road trips from San Francisco to So. California and I have grown to appreciate it more and more. I enjoyed her duet with John Pizzarelli in "Tonight You Belong To Me," and also her arrangement and rendition of "Look For The Silver Lining." My wife and I enjoyed her performance in the Bay Area back in June, and eagerly anticipated the release "Home." This is one CD that will stay in my iPod for a long time. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Memorable Moments of Beauty In Vocal Jazz January 20, 2012
Format:Audio CD
"Music binds us together with harmonies that are part of the galaxies and all the stars in their courses. Music heals, music releases emotions. Music we hear with each other is indeed more than music." ~ Madeleine L'Engle ~

Last night I pulled out a very old issue of Victoria (November 1995) from my collection and re-read an article written by Madeleine L'Engle titled "Giving Love A Memory, Melody A Tune." The above quote caught my fancy and it stirred and reactivated my spirit-to-write, which has been back-burnered for a long time because of my other passion--jewelry designing and handcrafting--which is very time-consuming. As a result, I have lost my "Top 500 Reviewer" status. I have been unfaithful so my dear AMZN took it away from me! :( Although I'm not really particular about ranking, it's always marvelous to have a badge of "Top Reviewer." It's a great feeling and it makes a reviewer more enthused and inspired in the process. One of my New Year's resolutions is to write more reviews--at least two to three CDs a week--if time permits. I love reviewing music and intend to keep it going as I still have more unreviewed CDs from my collection and if ever I run out of it, it's time to tackle my late father's collection of vinyl records. :)

Jane Monheit's "Home" reflects an understated sophistication that restores the time-tested standards to their original splendor. It is the kind of music that "heals and releases emotions." It exudes a wide range of emotions from gladness to sadness, from bliss to loneliness. And when you listen to it with someone special, it indeed becomes "more than music.

3.0 out of 5 stars "Home" Maid September 28, 2010
Format:Audio CD
Any new recording from Monheit, one of my favorite singers, is always more than welcome. That said, this isn't my favorite of her albums. "Home," a self-produced effort, certainly has a homemade feel to it, but to me that translates into a kind of slapdash looseness and an almost improvisational quality that, oddly, doesn't show off Monheit to her best advantage. Her voice sounds thinner and less solidly in control than in the past, and she doesn't seem to inhabit any of the material; these are pretty superficial renditions, lacking Monheit's usual emotional depth.

I download music, so don't have any liner notes that might explain the thinking behind the project; perhaps the offhandedness is the point. But "Home" feels almost UNproduced, as if Monheit and her musicians simply sat down and did their thing; it sounds as if the recordings were done live, and left as is. That isn't necessarily a bad thing, but neither does it suggest a guiding hand that might have created a cohesive whole out of its disparate parts.

As far as the selection of tunes, it's less interesting to me than on previous discs. ("I'll Be Around" being a notable exception.) The one new tune is negligible, and I could do without the cutesy duet with John Pizzarelli.

If you're a Monheit fan, you're going to get the album, and will, hopefully, like it more than I. But if you're just looking into this remarkably talented performer, this isn't the album with which to start.

I usually get every Jane Monheit album the minute it's released, but for some reason, I skipped this one until now. I'm sorry i waited so long!

Nothing spectacular...not up to her usual thrilling songs. Just O.K. Maybe it is the songs she picked on this album, but i would prefer to hear something that showcases her voice... Read more
