Dianne Reeves at the Chan Centre

Where: Chan Centre for Performing Arts (UBC, 6265 Crescent Rd)
When: Sunday March 8, 2020 at 7:00pm
Tickets: Available now from $36 online or by calling (604) 822-2697. $15 student rush tickets for this performance will become available on February 22, 2020 at 12:00pm.

“One of our generation’s definitive jazz masters, a vocal stylist of extraordinary skill and vivacity ” (The Huffington Post), Dianne Reeves is jazz royalty. Her commanding performances showcase the magic of her novel phrasing and the magnificence of her timeless voice. 

“The music of Brazil is known for its unique arrangements, infectious rhythms, and deep emotion, and coupled with Reeves’ outstanding vocal skill, this promises to be a truly memorable musical journey and a wonderful way to celebrate International Women’s Day,” says Joyce Hinton, Co-Managing Director of the Chan Centre.

Brazilian music has been a consistent presence and passion for Reeves, and its influence can be seen in just about every one of her recordings as well as in her longtime collaborations with leading Brazilian jazz musicians. In advance of a forthcoming Brazilian-inspired album, this will be Reeves’ first full-length program dedicated entirely to the vibrant sounds of the South American country, where familiar genres such as bossa nova, choro, and forró originated.

Known for working with fellow musical greats, Reeves has toured with Harry Belafonte, Eduardo del Barrio, and Sergio Mendes, which cemented her longstanding kinship with Latin American music. She has recorded and performed with several symphony orchestras, including with Wynton Marsalis and the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, and served as the first creative chair for jazz for the Los Angeles Philharmonic. Reeves has received five Grammy Awards for Best Jazz Vocal Album.
