Jane Monheit, at the age of 26, is widely considered to be one of the great young voices of jazz and traditional pop. Her professional career began at age 20 after winning the first runner-up prize at the 1998 Thelonious Monk Institute vocal competition. Shortly thereafter she began work on her first album, which came out in 2000. With Surrender - her sixth album and her first for Concord - she truly comes into her own, going beyond the "promising young vocalist" category to emerge at the top of her profession. Stephen Holden of the New York Times has this to say about Jan Monheit..."When Jane Monheit wraps her sweet, silky voice around ''Moon River,'' she suggests a kitten curled up on a rug, purring contentedly before a crackling fire."
