UMBRIA JAZZ ORCHESTRA
feat. Romero Lubambo, Peter Washington, Dan Weiss

Burt Bacharach’s songs are the theme of the new original project for which Umbria Jazz has created a prestigious puzzle: the stunning voice of Dianne Reeves, one of the most famous vocalists of jazz and black music; the arrangements of music intellectual Ethan Iverson; the horns of the Umbria Jazz Orchestra, which has proved a continuous artistic growth, project by project; special guests such as great Brazilian guitarist Romero Lubambo, who has toured many times with Reeves, double bass player Peter Washington, who has been a member of the all-stars performing for the 70th anniversary of Blue Note, and drummer Dan Weiss. This complex formula of significant organizational commitment focuses on the artistic personality of Dianne Reeves, a multiple Grammy winner, including one for the soundtrack of George Clooney’s film “Good Night, and Good Luck”. Reeves mixes her timeless grace, elegance and charisma in unique interpretations. Her stylistic versatility and expressive vocal skills let her range in an eclectic repertoire. This time, she does that with songs that have dominated the pop charts for half a century worldwide. Exceptional interpreters performed these songs, and Reeves is one of them.
