Dianne Reeves is an American jazz singer who has been active since 1983 and is from Detroit, Michigan. She was born to a musical family with a singer father and a trumpeter mother, with her cousin, George Duke, a renowned keyboard and piano player. Her father passed away when she was two years old and her mother raised her and her sister, Sharon. She grew fond of the piano at a young age and aspired to be a singer. Charles Burrell, her uncle and a Denver Symphony Orchestra bass player introduced her to jazz music, leading to her listening to the likes of Billie Holiday and Ella Fitzgerald, growing particularly fond of Sarah Vaughan.
With her high school band, she performed at a music festival where she met trumpeter Clark Terry, who would go on to become her mentor. She studied music at the University of Colorado, going on to tour with Eduardo del Barrio and singing in Billy Childs’ Night Flight. She also toured with Sergio Mendes and then with Harry Belafonte as his lead singer. She became the first vocalist signed onto the newly reactivate Blue Note/EMI Records, continuing a career that has led to her winning for Grammy Awards for the Best Jazz Performance. She is the only singer to have won the award for three consecutive albums. She has performed at such events as the Winter Olympic Games. She has released nineteen albums to date, each making her worthy of a live see at this concert. So book your tickets and enjoy the show!
