The Echternach & Clearstream International Jazz Days has invited the jazz chanteuse to perform at the Philharmonie.
Dianne Reeves is the only singer to have won three consecutive Best Vocal Jazz Album Grammys (she has four in total). Latest album Beautiful Life showcases her sublime voice and fuses R&B, Latin and pop within the framework of contemporary jazz.
Indeed, since her early years Reeves has been influenced by sounds from Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean--especially since she toured with the great Harry Belafonte in the mid 80s.
She has been compared to such legends of the genre as Dinah Washington and Carmen McRae and described as “a superior interpreter of lyrics and a skilled scat singer” by noted jazz writer Scott Yanow.
She is supported here by a quartet featuring Romero Lubambo (guitar), Peter Martin (piano), Reginald Veal (bass) and Terreon Gully (drums).
