Editorial Reviews

For three decades, Dianne Reeves has been one of the most popular vocalists, thanks to her well-produced recordings and engaging live shows. On this date, recorded before an audience of 300 fans, Reeves weaves her trademark, hornlike contralto over smooth grooves that cross over mainstream jazz, contemporary pop, and world-music lines. Her band, featuring keyboardist Otmaro Ruiz and Wynton Marsalis's bassist, Reginald Veal, delivers the Cat Stevens-associated church hymn "Morning Has Broken," Mongo Santamaria's classic "Afro-Blue," and Cole Porter's immortal "Love for Sale." She also pays homage to jazz's Brazilian roots with her splendid, spirited readings of Antonio Carlos Jobim's "Triste," a duet with guitarist Romero Lubambo, and Milton Nascimento's "Bridges." On her lyrical, midtempo "Come In," Reeves's cousin, keyboardist George Duke, turns in a brilliant solo, and "The First Five Chapters" is an autobiographical number inspired by author Portia Nelson. But the zenith of the set is "The Best Times (Grandma's Song)," her new version of her most requested song, "Better Days," which sings the praises and virtues of family values better than our politicians. --Eugene Holley Jr.

Once again Dianne Reeves demonstrates with her music she's one of a kind, one of the very few vocalist that relly say something new and, no matter what the critics say about her not focusing on pure jazz, SHE IS the perfect incarnation of what the spirits of jazz is: challenging the boundaries of music, pursuing freedom,improvisation, cultivating an exquisite taste with a sensibility that goes deep down into gospel, soul, r&b, afro, reggae to find a reveal new treasures. Above all this, naturally, stands her voice: warm, deep, rich in coulour and expression contralto,a voice guided by a sense of rythm and technical mastership going from moaning, caressing, soaring, roaring, culminating with an ability to scat that leaves you speechles. This time Diane's been caught in the rapture of a live performance, possibly her best dimension. She sing her heart out and kills you with a brilliant Brasilian trip: the acoustic reading of "Triste" is magnificient, matched by Nacimentos' "Bridges" that is already "the definitive cover" of this beautiful song. Then, she and her extraordinary band sweep you away with a salsa-latin flavoured "Love for sale" that will have even Cole Porter surely nodding with satisfaction from high above. What a voyage.. and then he comes George Duke playing the piano and dressing an old Dianne's hit "Come in" new, soulful and smooth and caressing and... beautiful... Each of the the songs of this superb set are simply stunning: a perfect collection to appreciate the art of Dianne Reeves, indeed. After her first, sensational "New Morning" live in Paris, this is the second chance to travel on the wings of real live jazz with one of the truest and best artists on the music scene today : when you're done, you just want to stand up and cry: Bravissima Dianne!

("M.D." in this case stands for musical doctor...) Those of us who have seen DR live know it is an experience unlike any other. Onstage, she makes her own rules and then breaks them-- seeming to constantly reinvent her songs/voice/ musical identity, all the while maintaining an intimacy with the audience that is as easeful as it is proufound/magical. I think that she does a number of very radical things with her music in general, and that her particularly radical style is exemplified by her performances on stage, and here in this album. When I say radical, I mean: somehow during the creative process of performing, she makes the radical choice to include the listener/audience over and over again EXPLICITLY in her creation. She has, I think, an innate and extremely rare understanding of the nexxus of human emotion and art (who else would dare put forth an album as raw and complex and contradicory as "Art and Survival'?) and is able to use her talent to make the final product far more than the sum of its parts. She goes beyond her role and status as an entertainer, giving medicine to her audience, medicine that lives on in the human heart long after the concert is over. Ironically, it's this, the most astounding aspect of her musicianship, that makes her most vulnerable to criticism. Most will agree on the dazzling voice, but: one reviewer of this album called "5 Chapters" "self-indulgent"; others have claimed she is too experimental and not a "true" jazz singer. I, myself, referred to some songs on "Bridges" as "didactic" (see review).Read more ›

This is the CD that made the world take notice. This is not her best body of work. She has giving loving fans better then this and never won a Grammy. This just tells you what a big talent the world has been missing. On studio recordings, Miss Reeves is above the game. Her live shows as this, can never be surpassed. I would love to see her make another live CD covering some of her other favorites. But, if you never saw her live shows this is a treat.

Twiddle enough knobs and almost anyone can sound good on a record. Echo chambers, vocal layers, and pitch modification are old studio tricks at this point in technology. But a live performance is where an artist can prove what he or she is truly made of, and "In the Moment" proves, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that Dianne Reeves is a technically astute artist of remarkable pitch, tasteful inflection, and skillful improvisation.
The set opens with an elegant reading of "Morning Has Broken," and from the first wordless vocal that she sings it's clear that Reeves is in full control, both technically and emotionally. Her vocals cast a seductive spell on a fiery rendition of "Afro Blue," and the Cole Porter chestnut "Love for Sale" gets such a spirited arrangement and vocal that, at seven minutes, it doesn't seem nearly long enough.
Longtime fans of Reeves will no doubt eagerly anticipate the Brazilian classic "Triste," a song she seems long-overdue to include on record, considering her career-long affection for Bossa Nova; the resulting smooth-as-silk duet between Dianne and guitarist Romero Lumbambo is even better than you dare hope for. But the most impressive arrangement herein is "Come In," a song which, in its original incarnation, was an Anita-Baker-friendly pop/soul number on her "Never Too Far" album. Here the song gets a shift in key and rhythm, and ends up being the most sophisticated of jazz numbers. Producer George Duke steps in as guest pianist for the song and works his usual magic, and the vocal Reeves turns in, when compared with the original, is a thrilling account of her evolution and growth as a vocalist.
