Dianne Reeves - Sing, Sing, Sing II

"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.

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. More than two generations have passed since jazz stars took on aristocratic titles, otherwise Dianne Reeves would surely be known as The Queen.

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.

The regal-voiced Dianne Reeves, a four-time Grammy Award winner who is heir to the soaring jazz tradition of Sarah Vaughan and Ella Fitzgerald, sings with Strings Attached, her intimate trio with the two splendid guitarists: Brazilian jazz giant Romero Lubambo and swinging jazz star Russell Malone. Reeves, whose intimate sense of a song has long made her one of the most compelling vocalists in jazz (Seattle Times), sings a rich program encompassing bossa nova classics, jazz solos, and sumptuously beautiful ballads.
