“One of our generation’s definitive jazz masters, a vocal stylist of extraordinary skill and vivacity ” (The Huffington Post), Dianne Reeves is jazz royalty. Her commanding performances showcase the magic of her novel phrasing and the magnificence of her timeless voice. Though she’s touched on compositions by Brazilian legends Dori Caymmi, Vinícius de Moraes, and Antônio Carlos Jobim throughout her career, this brand new project sees Reeves fully immerse herself in the sounds of Brazil with a band of uncommonly gifted players including guitarist Romero Lubambo, pianist John Beasley, bassist Itaiguara Brandão, and drummer Rafael Barata.
Dianne Reeves has performed with Wynton Marsalis and the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, and the Berlin Philharmonic, was the LA Philharmonic’s first Creative Chair for Jazz, and sold out the Chan Centre on her last visit to Vancouver in 2017. In 2018 she was designated a Jazz Master by the National Endowment for the Arts – the highest honour the United States bestows on jazz artists.
Come celebrate Beleza Brazil (“the beauty of Brazil”) through Dianne Reeves’ artfully audacious interpretations of the country’s finest musical treasures!
