Dianne Reeves

Blue Note recording artist Dianne Reeves will perform at Yoshi's Jazz Club in San Francisco on Thursday, December 30th through Saturday, January 1st. The show on Friday, December 31st will be broadcast live on NPR's New Year's Eve Toast of the Nation national radio show. Dianne Reeves is the pre-eminent jazz vocalist in the world today. As a result of her virtuosity, improvisational prowess and unique jazz and R&B stylings, Reeves was awarded the Grammy for Best Jazz Vocal Performance for three consecutive recordings—a Grammy first in any vocal category. She is backed by her quartet featuring Romero Lubambo on guitar, Peter Martin on piano, Reginald Veal on bass, and Terreon Gully on drums.

ImageDianne Reeves appeared and performed in George Clooney’s Good Night, and Good Luck, the Academy Award-nominated film that chronicles Edward R. Murrow’s confrontation with Senator Joseph McCarthy. The soundtrack recording of “Good Night, and Good Luck” provided Reeves her fourth Best Jazz Vocal Grammy in 2006.

Reeves has recorded and performed extensively with Wynton Marsalis and the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra. She has also recorded with Chicago Symphony Orchestra conducted by Daniel Barenboim and was a featured soloist with Sir Simon Rattle and the Berlin Philharmonic. Reeves was the first Creative Chair for Jazz for the Los Angeles Philharmonic and the first singer to ever perform at the famed Walt Disney Concert Hall.

Reeves worked with legendary producer Arif Mardin (Norah Jones, Aretha Franklin) on the Grammy-winning A Little Moonlight, an intimate collection of ten standards featuring her touring trio. When Reeves’ first holiday collection Christmas Time is Here was released in 2004, Ben Ratliff of The New York Times raved, “Ms. Reeves, a jazz singer of frequently astonishing skill, takes the assignment seriously; this is one of the best jazz Christmas CD's I've heard.”

In 2007 Reeves was featured in a documentary on the all-too-brief life of Billy Strayhorn. Dianne's first solo album in several years, When You Know, was released on April 15, 2008.

Yoshi’s in San Francisco is located at 1330 Fillmore Street. Reservations at www.yoshis.com/sanfrancisco/.
