Recognized as one of jazz's pre-eminent vocalists, Grammy winner Dianne Reeves is one of the most significant singers in jazz. While her singing is steeped in tradition, her rhythmic virtuosity and improvisational ease are breathtaking.
Reeves has won the Grammy for Best Jazz Vocal Performance for A Little Moonlight in 2003, The Calling in 2001 and In The Moment- Live in Concert in 2000. In fact, Reeves is the only recording artist in any singing category to have accomplished such a feat three records in a row. In 2006, Dianne Reeves went on to yet again garner the award for a fourth record-breaking time for best jazz vocal album for her soundtrack to the film Good Night, and Good Luck (Concord).
Dianne Reeves was clearly born of jazz; her singing draws upon a world of influences-and as with Carmen McRae and Billie Holiday, Reeves is tied to a powerful storytelling instinct. Reeves was the first vocalist signed to the reactivated Blue Note/EMI label in 1987. As a result of her unique R&B and jazz stylings, Reeves has since captured a huge following and tremendous critical acclaim throughout the world.
