The GRAMMY-winning vocalist and NEA Jazz Master performs timeless holiday songs from her Christmas Time Is Here album.

 

Called “The most admired jazz diva since the heyday of Sarah Vaughan, Ella Fitzgerald and Billie Holiday,” by The New York Times, Dianne Reeves performs timeless holiday songs like “I’ll Be Home For Christmas,” “Little Drummer Boy,” and “Let it Snow” from her Blue Note album, Christmas Time Is Here.

An artist who embodies jazz’s enduring values of elegance, class and improvisational poise (which isn’t to say that she can’t get earthy when a song requires a little grit), Reeves has won a string of GRAMMYs, including an unprecedented three consecutive Best Jazz Vocal Performance awards and another for her contributions to the soundtrack of George Clooney’s film Good Night and Good Luck. She’s a performer with a gift for imbuing any performance space with the intimacy of a living room, and her 2015 Concord Records debut, Beautiful Life, won the GRAMMY for Best Jazz Vocal Album, melding jazz with elements of R&B, pop and Latin music. For this run of winter performances, Reeves performs timeless holiday songs as captured on her smash 2004 Blue Note release, Christmas Time is Here. Whether putting a personal stamp on lilting Brazilian standards, exploring contemporary fair by Ani DiFranco and Stevie Nicks, interpreting American Songbook classics by the Gershwin, Porter and Berlin, or breathing fresh life into holiday chestnuts, Dianne Reeves always gets to the heart of a song.
