Jane Monheit has had plenty of milestone moments in establishing herself as one of today’s best and most important vocalist-musicians. With her new album, The Songbook Sessions: Ella Fitzgerald—the first to be released on her own Emerald City Records—the Long Island native has surprised even herself with her artistic leap. Main Stage. MG3 Trio is a non-traditional jazz organ trio with Melissa Gardiner on trombone & vocals, joined by William Gorman on the organ and Byron Cage on the drums. All three musicians were brought up in the church with a background in gospel music. With added influence from the blues, soul, neo-soul, R&B, funk, and fusion, their diverse repertoire always focuses on a strong groove, combined with interesting reharmonization and beautiful soaring melodies.
