Jazz singer Jane Monheit had thought about recording a tribute to Ella Fitzgerald for a long time. While growing up, Fitzgerald’s songbook albums were biblical to a young Monheit. So sixteen years after her 2000 debut, Never Never Land, Monheit finally released that tribute with The Songbook Sessions: Ella Fitzgerald. While Monheit pays homage to Fitzgerald on the dozen songs that make up the album, she puts her own stunning spin on each track, particularly on ballads like “Chelsea Mood” (a blending of “Chelsea Bridge” and “In a Sentimental Mood”) and “Ev’ry Time We Say Goodbye,” as well as the more buoyant and swinging “Something’s Gotta Give” and “Where or When.” While it honors a great, the album proves that Monheit herself is one of the best jazz vocalists in the world.
