With humor, wit and steeped in deep jazz roots, Monika has written a collection of hip songs to be enjoyed by both the intellect and the empath.
"A sultry ménage à trois of sly vocals, energetic music, and toe tapping rhytms."
"vocals both astounding and dripping with sweltering attitude. Love love love!" - Oscar Moon
"Amazing! Honest, Heartfelt, and Real" - Susan Picking
In the spirit of the late greats Mose Allison and Eddie Jefferson and a nod to Jon Hendricks and Bob Dorough, both of whom Monika has shared the stage with.

"She displays a fresh, clear, and rich voice, replete with sparkling vocal inflections. Throughout the presentation, she is not afraid to boldly showcase her singularly variegated and stylized vocal palette; with its pinch of stage show tune ambiance." - Monty Guy
This is a collection that George Carlin and Groucho Marx alike would dig.
"Fantastic!" - Doug Mitchell
