Sun Sentinel Broward Edition - Showtime - South Broward - - MUSIC -

New la­bel (her own Emer­ald City Records), new pro­ducer (trum­peter Ni­cholas Pay­ton), same rich vo­cals (“a voice of phe­nom­e­nal beauty,” wrote the New York Times’ Stephen Holden) and same ju­di­cious taste in jazz men­tors, as heard on her im­mi­nent al­bum, “The Song­book Ses­sions: Ella Fitzger­ald,” set for re­lease April 8. Per­haps for the first time, this is the per­pet­u­ally youth­ful New Yorker, now 38, al­low­ing ma­tu­rity to take the lead on songs such as “Some­body Loves Me” and “Ev’ry Time We Say Good­bye.” “I thought it was im­por­tant to cap­ture the side of Ella that some­times gets played down, her warmth and sin­cer­ity and the depth of her singing,” Mon­heit says in her press ma­te­rial. “I’m closer to that side, as a mu­si­cian, than the crazy, swing­ing to­tal-ge­nius side of her.” When: 8:30 p.m. to­day-Satur­day Where: Colony Ho­tel, 155 Ham­mon Ave., Palm Beach Cost: $95, plus $50 food and drink min­i­mum Con­tact: 561-659-8100 or TheColonyPalmBeach.com
