Jane Monheit has been a leading light in both the jazz and cabaret worlds since emerging as a finalist in the Thelonious Monk Institute’s 1998 vocal competition. In addition to her own recordings, she has worked alongside the likes of Terence Blanchard, Tom Harrell, and Ivan Lins. She says that the distinctive, continually surprising sound of The Heart Of The Matter is the result of an especially satisfying collaboration with Grammy-winning producer Gil Goldstein, who has previously worked with such giants as Wayne Shorter, Gil Evans, and Pat Metheny. Monheit’s passion for Brazilian music colors a big swath of The Heart Of The Matter- most obviously, in the two selections written by the great Ivan Lins. “This music has always been a huge part of my life,” she says.” It’s important to me that I sing in Portuguese whenever possible, out of respect for the composer and lyricist.”
