    Jane Monheit sings Hello Bluebird - A Celebration of the Jazz of Judy Garland

    Grammy-nominated jazz vocalist Jane Monheit pays tribute to the legendary Judy Garland with a classic repertoire of the Hollywood icon’s most celebrated ballads and closes the performance with Garland’s signature song “Over The Rainbow/Hello Bluebird.” An extraordinarily gifted jazz vocalist whose sincere and romantic interpretations of exceptional songs have made her a favorite in both the jazz and cabaret worlds, Jane Monheit has garnered numerous accolades in the past decade. Her first album, Never Never Land, was voted top debut recording by the Jazz Journalist’s Association and stayed on the Billboard jazz chart for over a year; subsequent albums yielded two Grammy nominations.
