NEW LONDON, Conn. - OnStage at Connecticut College presents Dianne Reeves: Strings Attached featuring Russell Malone and Romero Lubambo on Oct. 24 at 8 p.m. in Palmer Auditorium. Reeves' unique jazz and R&B vocals have gained her world acclaim, and she is considered to be one of the most important jazz singers of all time. Reeves made history when she won her third consecutive Grammy for Best Jazz Vocal Performance in 2003, a Grammy first in any vocal category. She also won a fourth Grammy in 2006.
Reeves has successfully managed to cross over into the mainstream, and has gained a huge following. Her work has been featured in various films and television shows, such as "Good Night, and Good Luck" and "Sex and the City." Her most recent album, "When You Know," is considered by critics to be equally as impressive as her past recordings.
"'When You Know' is simply great, subtle music for grown ups," BBC's Nick Reynolds razed. "Reeves is blessed with a voice that has a beautiful, clear tone and phenomenal range." Tickets are $28, $24 and $20 for general admission, $25, $21.50 and $18 for seniors and $14, $12 and $10 for students.
