Dianne Reeves

The greatest living jazz vocalist returns for her February performances that have become a Valentine’s Day tradition. An artist who embodies jazz’s enduring values of elegance, class and improvisational poise (which isn’t to say that she can’t get earthy when a song requires a little grit), Reeves has won a string of GRAMMYs, including an unprecedented three consecutive Best Jazz Vocal Performance awards and another for her contributions to the soundtrack of George Clooney’s film Good Night and Good Luck. She’s a performer with a gift for imbuing any performance space with the intimacy of a living room, and her Concord Records debut, Beautiful Life, won the 2015 GRAMMY for Best Jazz Vocal Album, melding jazz with elements of R&B, pop and Latin music. Whether putting a personal stamp on lilting Brazilian standards, exploring contemporary fare by Ani DiFranco and Stevie Nicks, or interpreting American Songbook classics by the Gershwin, Porter and Berlin, Dianne Reeves always gets to the heart of a song. More than two generations have passed since jazz stars took on aristocratic titles, otherwise Dianne Reeves would surely be known as The Queen.
