Many might still know her as the jazz singer in Good Night, and Good Luck, but beyond having been a bulwark against McCarthyism and other repressive mindsets, for the past 35 years, Dianne Reeves has served as an unofficial ambassador between jazz, r&b, blues, and soul. In many ways heir to the mantle of Ella Fitzgerald, Reeves has inspired a generation of powerful female voices, among them Esperanza Spalding, First Daughter of Soul Lalah Hathaway, and Terri Lyne Carrington, who will all be joining her at Carnegie Hall. Fusion pioneer George Duke rounds out the group on keyboard.
