Dianne Reeves with Russell Malone & Romero Lubambo

Reeves is the most commanding jazz vocalist on earth: her creamy, shattering contralto has a “skyscraper authority” (New York Times) that was shaped by Sergio Mendes and Harry Belafonte but breathes the sultry gospel-blues of Mahalia Jackson. Here the Detroit-born legend appears with two ace guitarists — Georgia native Malone and Lubambo, from Rio, who’s “the best practitioner of his craft in the world today” (Jazziz).


“[A]ccompanied by two guitars, one acoustic, one electric, [Reeves] provid[es] a new context to a voice that is as pure and pitch-perfect as they come.”
Seattle Times
