Dianne Reeves

A throwback to the grand old dames of jazz, Dianne Reeves became a Grammy Award-winning star and one of the few contemporary voices capable of doing justice to the classic standards. Spotted singing in High School bands by trumpeter Clark Terry, she started out as a session singer and toured with Sergio Mendes and Harry Belafonte before experimenting with Latin, pop and world music in her early days. That changed when she became the first signing to the re-established Blue Note label in 1987, and she took inspiration from the likes of Billie Holiday, Sarah Vaughan and Ella Fitzgerald for the albums Never Too Far (1990), I Remember (1991) and Quiet After The Storm (1994). Reeves became the first artist to win Grammys for three consecutive releases for the albums In The Moment (2000), The Calling (2001) and A Little Moonlight (2003) and performed at the closing ceremony of the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City. Still crooning away to slick, modern jazz ballads, Reeves appeared in the George Clooney movie Good Night, and Good Luck in 2005 and won her fourth Grammy for the soundtrack.
