Grammy-nominated vocalist Jane Monheit will release her 11th CD The Heart Of The Matter on April 16, 2013 with Emarcy/Decca Records. An homage to great songwriters and voices from a variety of musical genres, the new album is an eclectic and carefully crafted selection of 12 tunes ranging from Golden Slumbers/The Long And Winding Road by The Beatles to Buffy St. Maries Until Its Time For You To Go to Depende de Nos by Ivan Lins. Jane adds a few personal favorites into the mix such as her take on the Sesame Street classic, Sing, a song she often sings for her young son Jack and Night Night Stars, a Monheit original and the first song she ever recorded. The release of The Heart Of The Matter will be accompanied by select tour dates worldwide.
This album is really different from my last, Jane says. I knew it was time for the focus of a project to be lyrical interpretation…over the years, its become the most important part of my approach to music. The songs were chosen just for that reason…I didnt worry about genre or style…just that each song dealt with a message I wanted to share or story I wanted to tell.
The Heart Of The Matter was produced and arranged by noted producer Gil Goldstein and recorded this past November at Avatar Studios in New York City. The CD features Jane on lead and background vocals, Michael Kanan on piano, Gil Goldstein on electric piano and accordion, Romero Lubambo on acoustic guitar, Neal Miner on bass, Rick Montalbano on drums, Rogerio Boccato on percussion, David Eggar and Richard Locker on cello, Barry Crawford and Kathleen Nester on alto flute, and Sheryl Henze on bass flute and c flute.
