About

One of the world's foremost jazz vocalists, Grammy winner Dianne Reeves has electrified Kennedy Center audiences at Renée Fleming's American Voices festival and the Blue Note at 75 Celebration. Her "three-plus octaves, diva-like delivery, and intimate sense of song have long made her one of the most compelling vocalists in jazz," says the Seattle Times. Now, for a not-to-be missed evening in the Concert Hall, she invites her friends and fellow jazz musicians pianist Billy Childs, singer-songwriter and vocalist Raul Midón, and drummer Terri Lyne Carrington to join her on stage with her band: pianist John Beasley, guitarist Romero Lubambo, bassist Reginald Veal, and drummer Terreon Gully.

An in-demand pianist and composer, three-time Grammy winner Billy Childs is known for playing that is "radiant and deftly executed" (All About Jazz).

"A one-man band who turns a guitar into an orchestra and his voice into a chorus" (The New York Times), Midón has one of music's most distinctive and searching voices. Blind since birth, he has released seven albums since 1999, including the hit studio productions State of Mind (Manhattan/EMI, 2005), A World Within a World (Manhattan/EMI, 2007) and Synthesis (Decca/Universal, 2009).

Grammy-winning drummer, composer, and bandleader Terri Lyne Carrington, a regular at the Kennedy Center, "plays with equal parts power and passion" (NPR).
