    First Listen: Dianne Reeves - Beautiful Life

    Four time Grammy winning vocalist Dianne Reeves has just released Beautiful Life, her debut album for Concord Records.

    Reeves has been creating a strong jazz and musical presence since the 80s and this may well be one of her strongest collections of tunes in a career that has her placed as one of the greatest modern interpreters of song.

    The songs and the players she has chosen to collaborate with this time around are worth noting. It’s all part of the ongoing evolution of jazz. 

    Gregory Porter, Esperanza Spalding and Robert Glasper to name a few, with Terri Lyne Carrington not only providing her expertise within the drum department but as a producer as well.

    Beautiful Life is a soulful, sophisticated journey, as Reeves herself has stated…  “At its essence, life is beautiful and I wanted to celebrate that which is too often overlooked.”

    For this weeks First Listen we’ve chosen her take on Fleetwood Mac’s classic “Dreams”.
