An Evening With Jazz Legend, Diane Schuur
Friday April 04, 2014
Regarded as one of contemporary jazz's leading vocalists, Diane Schuur has built a stellar career embracing not only the jazz of her parents' generation, but also the pop music of her own youth during the late 1950's and '60s. As eclectic as she is brilliant, Schuur taught herself piano by ear and developed a rich, resonant vocal style early on. With a distinguished career that spans nearly three decades and includes two Grammy Awards and three Grammy nominations,
Schuur's music has explored nearly every corner of the 20th century American musical landscape. Her collaborations with The Count Basie Orchestra, B.B. King and Barry Manilow, among others, have produced numerous #1 Billboard jazz chart recordings, including Pure Schuur and Heart to Heart.
Her 2011 release, The Gathering, is unique in both material and style, infusing her unique jazz styling into ten country brewed tunes from seminal songwriters such as Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard, Hank Cochran, Kris Kristofferson, Roger Miller and others.
