As demonstrated on albums such as 2004's TAKING A CHANCE ON LOVE and 2007's SURRENDER, Jane Monheit is possessed of an enchantingly cool, yet technically precise, vocal style that is beautifully suited to both contemporary pop and jazz standards. THE LOVERS, THE DREAMERS, AND ME, Monheit's seventh release, provides further evidence of her charm and talent. Taking on tunes by Cole Porter and Jimmy Dorsey, as well as Fiona Apple and Paul Simon, Monheit dazzles on a sophisticated, swinging vocal jazz outing.
