Dianne Reeves in Concert

Diana Reeves

By Bill McDonald

Through their concert series, the Jazz Performance and Education Centre (JPEC) continue in their quest of preserving and continuing the development of jazz music in Canada. While their primary focus has been promoting Canadian jazz musicians, it is important that their programs occasionally incorporate international artists. It’s hard to imagine a better representative than the incomparable jazz vocalist, Dianne Reeves.

Reeves was born in Detroit to a highly musical family and, at an early age, her family moved to Denver, Colorado. Her talents were fostered both at home and school, with influences that included jazz and classical music. In 1976, she moved to Los Angeles to pursue her career as a vocalist. Here she also began incorporating Latin American styles. Her LA experiences included a tour with the legendary Sergio Mendes. Her musical horizons expanded further into world music with her 1983 to 1986 tour with Harry Belafonte.
