Dianne Reeves at Ystad Sweden Jazz Festival 2015!


Dianne Reeves won the Best Jazz Vocal Album Grammy for ‚ÄĚBeautiful Life‚Ä̬†at the 57th Grammy Awards on Sunday evening.

Ystad Sweden Jazz Festival is very proud to present one of the world’s best jazz singers, Dianne Reeves, at this summer’s festival!

Dianne Reeves is a virtuoso vocalist whose improvisational prowess glides between jazz and R&B. ‚Ä®‚ÄĚBeautiful Life‚ÄĚ, her first album in five years, won Reeves her fifth Grammy.

‚ÄúLife is beautiful, and I wanted to celebrate that which is too often overlooked,‚ÄĚ says Reeves about ‚ÄĚBeautiful Life‚ÄĚ. The album includes music by names such as Bob Marley, Fleetwood Mac and Marvin Gaye and touches on Latin, R&B and pop.

Dianne Reeves has performed all over the world. In January 2015, she performed at Jazz at Lincoln Center in New York with Paul Simon, James Taylor and Bobby McFerrin in a tribute concert to Michael Brecker.‚ÄĚ

Dianne Reeves will perform at Ystad Sweden Jazz Festival on Friday 31 July at 23.00 in a concert on the festival’s main stage, Ystads Teater.
