Dianne Reeves

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 each of her last three recordings: 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).

“A starburst of song exploded onto the stage along with the rain, a musical front moved through Qatar on Thursday evening changing the musical landscape forever.” ~The Peninsula, Qatar's preeminent English language paper
