With 30 years of music-making and five Grammy Awards under her belt, Dianne Reeves is still restless. Since her early years touring with Harry Belafonte, Reeves has soaked up influences and styles and tried them all on, with breathtaking results. With improvisational prowess, Reeves blurs the lines from old-school scat singing all the way to the contemporary pop and R&B of today.
Reeves’ Grammy-winning 2015 album Beautiful Life boasts an all-star cast, including Gregory Porter, bassist Esperanza Spalding, and pianist Robert Glasper, resulting in another virtuosic showcase of her voice. Whether she’s coolly channeling Sarah Vaughan or belting steamy, gospel-infused soul numbers, her concerts remain a tour de force in American jazz. This concert also features Peter Martin, Romero Lubambo, Reginald Veal, and Terreon Gully.
“Dianne Reeves has, perhaps more than any other vocalist, blurred the line that separates jazz from pop and contemporary R&B, extending the boundaries of each.” – Thom Jurek, AllMusic
