They are two of the best contemporary interpreters of Jazz Standards and the Great American Songbook. John Pizzarelli and Jane Monheit tell us about their influences and careers, and then give us an intimate, pre-Valentine's Day performance in our studio.
In 2009, Monheit and Pizzarelli joined forces for an episode of Ramsey Lewis’ Legends of Jazz series which aired on WTTW11. From that program, watch the duo's rendition of the classic Gershwin brothers’: “They Can't Take That Away from Me.”
Watch the duo perform the Irving Berlin classic, "Cheek to Cheek."
Monheit and Pizzarelli, with his quartet, are performing at the North Shore Center for the Performing Arts in Skokie on Feb. 13 at 8:00 pm.
