Reeves and her masterful band including Brazilian guitar genius Romero Lubambo present the World Premiere of her new project devoted to the music of Brazil, accompanied by special guest to be named soon. Though Reeves has included the work of Dori Caymmi, Vinícius de Moraes, and Jobim in her sets and recordings over the years, this is her first evening-length sojourn into Brazilian popular song.

ABOUT DIANNE REEVES:

“The most admired jazz diva since the heyday of Sarah Vaughan, Ella Fitzgerald and Billie Holiday,” (The New York 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.

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