Ystad Sweden Jazz Festival is very proud to present one of the worldâ€™s best jazz singers, Dianne Reeves, at this summerâ€™s festival!
Dianne Reeves is a virtuoso vocalist whose improvisational prowess glides between jazz and R&B. â€¨â€ťBeautiful Lifeâ€ť, her first album in five years, won Reeves her fifth Grammy.
