    Her Guinness Cork Jazz Festival performance will showcase Dianne’s sublime gifts by melding many elements of R&B, Latin and pop within the framework of 21st Century jazz.

    Her programme will include songs made famous by Bob Marley, Fleetwood Mac, Marvin Gaye and Ani DiFranco,

    Dianne Reeves reigns supreme in the jazz pantheon, collecting awards and praise everywhere. Settle in for a performance of vocal enchantment from this great artist.
