New York Times Review “The Songbook Sessions: Ella Fitzgerald”

Jane Monheit approaches a familiar touchstone from an unexpected angle on her new album, “The Songbook Sessions: Ella Fitzgerald.” An act of loving homage from one vocalist to another, it features Ms. Monheit with her longtime band, but in the hands of an outside producer, the trumpeter Nicholas Payton. There’s a flicker of odd-couple tension in their alliance, and it works. http://www.nytimes.com/2016/04/07/arts/music/jane-monheit-songbook-sessions-ella-fitzgerald.html?_r=0
