Reeves and her band of Brazilian greats including legendary pianist and composer Ivan Lins and guitar genius Romero Lubambo return with four nights devoted to the music of Brazil, joined by pianist and MONK’estra leader John Beasley.

ABOUT DIANNE REEVES
“The most admired jazz diva since the heyday of Sarah Vaughan, Ella Fitzgerald and Billie Holiday,” (NY Times) GRAMMY winner and 2018 NEA Jazz Master Dianne Reeves is jazz’s greatest living vocalist — an artist who embodies the music’s enduring values of elegance, class and improvisational poise. Her string of GRAMMYs includes 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 2015 Concord Records debut, Beautiful Life, won the 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 fair by Ani DiFranco and Stevie Nicks, interpreting American Songbook classics by the Gershwin, Porter and Berlin, or breathing fresh life into holiday chestnuts, Dianne Reeves always gets to the heart of a song.

ABOUT DIANNE REEVES

Lins is among Brazil’s most beloved and often-recorded composers, and Lubambo is known for his work with Astrud Gilberto and Trio da Paz. Though Reeves has touched on the work of Dori Caymmi, Vinícius de Moraes, and Jobim over the years, this is her first residency devoted solely to Brazilian popular song.

She roams and explores, growls and catches at notes and phrasings. It is this audacity that makes Reeves’ voice an awesome instrument.
