Dianne Reeves

1956 -

Origin: United States

As a high school student, scat singer Dianne Reeves was already setting herself apart as a skilled performer. While studying at the University of Colorado, she collaborated with trumpeter and mentor Clark Terry. In 1982, the songstress worked as a session musician in Los Angeles, and later dabbled in folk, pop, and world music before finding her niche in jazz. With Blue Note Records, Reeves released a slew of well-received albums, including I Remember (1992), The Grand Encounter (1996), and A Little Moonlight (2003). She performed with the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra and the Berlin Philharmonic and won a Grammy in 2006, for the soundtrack to Good Night, and Good Luck, in which she also appeared. In 2008, she released the pop-flavoured When You Know, followed by Beautiful Life in 2014.
