Watch & Listen
A superb interpreter of lyrics and a skilled scat singer, Reeves’s delivery is intensely soulful and full of finesse. Her uncanny range — from a smoky contra-alto to a soaring soprano — can cast a spell on ballads and invigorate on uptempo romps. Expect her to do both in her return to the Exit Zero Festival while also blurring the line that separates jazz from pop and contemporary R&B. “There’s always a sense of freedom and playfulness onstage,” noted London Jazz News about a recent risk-taking Reeves performance at Wigmore Hall. “And like Gregory Porter, she has a preacher’s skill in stirring up the audience.” Whether she’s swinging, summoning up a wealth of emotion on a sensitive ballad, dealing in sophisticated R&B or incorporating the sounds of Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean, Reeves’ proves that she has few vocal rivals on the current jazz scene.
