Album Notes
Jane Scheckter

Jane's two albums, "I've Got My Standards" (DRG) and "Double Standards" (Doxie) have elicited raves from the critics, Downbeat praising her "Ella-styled artistry". She is backed by Mike Renzi, Grady Tate, and Jay Leonhart -- some of the most highly regarded musicians in the business. In 1996 she won the Back Stage Bistro Award for outstanding jazz vocalist.

Her New York club appearances include engagements at Reno Sweeney, Brothers and Sisters, Grand Finale, the FireBird, the Ballroom, Danny's, Judy's and Eighty-Eight's. Reviewing her cabaret act, John S, Wilson in the New York Times wrote of her "precise, positive, pure-toned voice" and "her offhand delivery that gives sparkle to the standards". In Los Angeles she sang at the Academy, Le Café and The Gardenia, and performed in the improvisation group, "Off the Wall" with Robin Wiliams.

She has appeared twice in the 92nd Street Y's Lyrics & Lyricists and on the syndicated radio show, "New York Cabaret Nights".

Off Broadway she appeared in "Our Sinatra" during the 2001 season, with Peter Cincotti. She was seen in Barry Manilow's long-running hit "The Drunkard" and "The Proposition", with Jane Curtin and Fred Grandy.

Jane was a guest soloist with the Springfield (Mass.) Symphony, playing to an audience of 5,000 in a pops concert. She gave a solo concert at Le Theatre de Dix Heures in Paris. Other French appearances include Le Bilboquet and La Villa in Paris, and Le Château, La Napoule.

Matt McCutchin

In a word, "clear." In another word, "beaming." A better word, though: "delightf
Schekter's fine voice brings to these well-chosen standards her trademark crystal clarity and the warm presence one would expect with her theatrical experience. But that's only the beginning -- there is a wonderfully radiant, hopeful, honest, positive, pre-pomo energy in her delivery that hasn't been heard since another wartime so many decades ago. I love this album and can't wait for more from Jane Schekter.

Roy Rosenthal

Simply A pleasure to listen to. As beautiful as Diana Krall's work
A wonderful, well produced collection of music. Scheckter sultry and pure tones are backed up with suberb musicians. Timeless and terrific.
