Jane Monheit is a returning voice to this Festival, after having participated in the first Edition. She was missed and returns now as guest of the Algarve Jazz Orchestra. Jane comes from a family of musicians, and soon joined the Manhattan Shool Of Music, soon after she was competing very successfully in one of the most prominent North American events, the Thelonious Monk International Jazz Competition. He started recording in 2000, having today in her name about a dozen albums, with the most outstanding North American musicians. Her influences are many, and her discography is proof of that, leaving no Smooth Jazz item out of context: besides swing, it is not difficult to hear a Bossa Nova in his voice. Her latest work focus the music of Ella Fitzgerald, and this is also the motif that will be heard in this Concert, bringing Jane together with this Orchestra.
