Dianne Reeves

Pianist Peter Martin – a former New Orleanian who maintains deep ties to the Crescent City – plays Jazz Fest with his trio Saturday, April 28th. He then backs Grammy-winning singer Dianne Reeves at Jazz Fest on Sunday, April 29th.

Dianne Reeves is one of the world's finest jazz singers, and through the years she has hired a lot of New Orleans musicians for her bands — including Herlin Riley, Chris Severin, David Torkanowsky — and these days, pianist Peter Martin and bassist Reginald Veal, who will be featured in her quintet at Jazz Fest.
