Dianne Reeves Strings Attached featuring Russell Malone & Romero Lubambo at the Bellevue Jazz Festival
Recognized as one of the premier vocalists in the world, four-time GRAMMY winner, Dianne Reeves, is one of the most prominent and influential singers in jazz. While her singing is steeped in tradition, her rhythmic virtuosity and improvisational ease are breathtaking.
Reeves has won the GRAMMY for Best Jazz Vocal Performance for each of her last three recordings and is the only recording artist in any singing category to have accomplished such a feat three records in a row.
Dianne Reeves was clearly born of jazz and her singing draws upon a world of influences. As a result of her unique R&B and jazz stylings, Reeves has captured a huge following and tremendous critical acclaim throughout the world.
In her first Blue Note album of new material in five years, Dianne Reeves returns with When You Know (2008), a stunning array of performances of old and new standards and infectious originals. The much-anticipated album showcases Reeves at the top of her game. When You Know will be a touchstone for singers in generations to come.
This albums uniqueness can be attributed to Reeves having performed in an unusual musical context over the past year: two guitars and voice, billed as Stings Attached. Conceived by her manager, Darryl Pitt, for Europes Jazz Baltica Festival, the setting enabled her to discover new ways for her voice to both soar and seduce. Guitar masters Russell Malone and Romero Lubambo joined Reeves for the performance and the result was magical. As a result, a 25-date European Strings Attached tour was booked.
Ms. Reeves will perform with Malone and Lubambo Friday night in the Center Hall at Meydenbauer Center.
