Five-time Grammy winner DIANNE REEVES is the preeminent jazz vocalist in the world. As a result of her breathtaking virtuosity, improvisational prowess, and unique jazz and R&B stylings, Reeves received the Grammy for Best Jazz Vocal Performance for three consecutive recordings – a Grammy first in any vocal category.
Featured in George Clooney's six-time Academy Award nominated Good Night, and Good Luck, Reeves won the Best Jazz Vocal Grammy for the film's soundtrack. And in 2018, she was designated a Jazzmaster — the highest honor the U.S. bestows on jazz artists.
Dianne Reeves starts at 5:00 p.m.
