In 2010, Jane Monheit snagged the greatest reward to which any singer can aspire. That’s right, she played a singer who’s very big in a parallel universe—the otherwise nonexistent Judy Bridgewater, who “furnished” the title song for Never Let Me Go. Now she’s reversed thrusters to tackle a singer who was, at least for a while, very big in this universe—the new album, Songbook Sessions: Ella Fitzgerald, should be self-explanatory. Trodding where Ella Fitzgerald trod will be tricky, especially since Fitzgerald herself never let anyone see her sweat. But Monheit is packing heat, spark, and a special delicacy in scat singing. I’m eager to hear her try. ANDREW HAMLIN
