Celebrated as one of the world's pre-eminent jazz vocalists, Dianne Reeves won Grammy Awards for Best Jazz Vocal Performance for each of her last four recordings – a Grammy first in any vocal category. Since her signing as the first vocalist on the reactivated Blue Note label in 1987, Reeves has captured a huge following and tremendous critical acclaim for her unique jazz stylings, which draw their inspiration from a world of influences, including Africa, Brazil, the Caribbean, gospel and R&B.
Reeves has recorded and performed in George Clooney’s acclaimed Good Night, and Good Luck (the soundtrack of which won her latest Grammy), with the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra, with Daniel Barenboim and the Chicago Symphony, with Sir Simon Rattle and the Berlin Philharmonic and at the closing ceremony of the Winter Olympic Games in Salt Lake City. She has received the Ella Fitzgerald Award at the Montreal International Jazz Festival and an honorary doctorate from the Berklee College of Music, and she was the first Creative Chair for Jazz for the Los Angeles Philharmonic. She continues to tour extensively throughout the US, Europe and Asia.
Returning to the National Concert Hall after her acclaimed 2004 appearance, Dianne arrived this time with ‘Strings Attached’, featuring the unique talents of two of jazz’s finest guitarists, Russell Malone and Romero Lubambo.
