Jazz: Jane Monheit
Tuesday: New York native Jane Monheit celebrates one of Minnesota's own during this show devoted to Judy Garland's jazzier side. The 36-year-old Monheit has said the idea of the set is to "get away from the drama and celebrate what we all loved about Judy, the immense joy she brought through song and her innate understanding of jazz. She did so much more than break hearts - she put them together again - and that's what we're going to be about with this show." In addition to two evening performances, Monheit will be on hand for a three-course meal at noon that's open to a limited number of guests (contact the club for details). 7 and 9 p.m.; Dakota Jazz Club, 1010 Nicollet Ave., Mpls.; $40-$30; 612-332-1010 or dakotacooks.com.
