Songbird Jane Monheit tends to alight at this pricey jazz club every December, and her languidly enchanting vocals are quickly becoming part of the traditional soundtrack for the SoCal holiday season. In recent years, the Long Island native has been pursuing her love of the music of Ella Fitzgerald, as documented on the 2016 album Songbook Sessions: Ella Fitzgerald. While Monheit doesn’t impart the same vocal grandeur and bluesy fire as Lady Ella, she finds nimble ways to pay tribute while maintaining her own coolly restrained personality as she breezily purrs through playful remakes of “Something’s Gotta Give” and “Where or When.” She has imbued records by Harold Mabern, David Benoit, Sara Gazarek and Terence Blanchard with the same graceful touch. She’ll likely pull out of her bag some of her distinctive, richly mournful Christmas ballads. Also Saturday, Dec. 23.
