Editorial Reviews

2008 release, her first Blue Note album of new material in five years. The four-time Grammy winner is an exceptional American Jazz singer, known more for her live performances than her albums. She is considered one of the most important contemporary Jazz singers. Dianne Reeves was the first singer signed to the newly reactivated Blue Note label in 1987, Reeves states, "Blue Note is so supportive of its artists. There are so many unique voices here, and we have the freedom to document our music as we grow artistically." 10 tracks.

Format: Audio CD
In total contrast with Dianne's last release, the all-jazz soundtrack for the 1950s-set film "Good Night And Good Luck", this album is a rather strange mix of pop, soul, funk, R'n'B and jazz - with the American singer's creamy and elegant vocals the only common thread.
She is such a monumental performer that her powers sometimes overwhelm her material - as if only the most ecstatic, tragic or visionary lyrics can withstand a broadside of this multi Grammy-winner's technique.
"When You Know" reveals a mature, restrained, subtle and dazzlingly musical Reeves, with players and arrangements so good that even the overworn "The Windmills of Your Mind" sounds transformed.
This is an album of love songs, which might not appeal to those for whom lines like "loving you ... is more than just a dream come true" occasion a touch of queasiness. But if anything can win smooth jazz a reprieve, it's this - though it's too full of surprises to warrant the "smooth" label.
There's probably something in here for everyone, but it may struggle to sustain jazz fans' interest, and the rather disconcerting effect is of listening to a radio whose channels are being changed every few minutes.
Album's highlights: "Lovin' You", "Social Call" and 'Midnight Sun".

"There is a Gustav Klimt painting I had seen at the Belvedere in Vienna of a young woman moving through life. I remember loving the various depictions of the phases of her life from innocence to increasing maturity. In a similar way, this album progresses through songs which celebrate different phases of love, in much the same way our notions of love change as we move through time." ~ Dianne Reeves ~

Multi-Grammy winner Dianne Reeves latest offering, "When You Know," was released just over a month ago under Blue Note, a prestigious company well-known for its quality and reliable jazz recordings. This adds prestige to the album's marketability among the new releases in the genre of vocal jazz. So you can't go wrong - it is a sure winner.

Some of the finest studio musicians who have impressed me over the years lend support to Ms. Reeves and lovingly combined their creative talents to make this album as equally remarkable as her other albums, and these are guitarists Russell Malone (electric) and Romero Lubambo (acoustic), piano players George Duke and Billy Childs, among many others.

Through the years, Ms. Reeves has proven her sublime artistry through her bestselling albums, some of which has garnered Grammy nominations and awards, and not to mention the steady stream of fans who have supported her body of work.

According to Ms. Reeves, "creating and recording this album was not a labor of love ... it was just love." It truly shows the love and creativity that she injected into the material most especially two of my favorite songs in the Seventies - a beautiful and once-very-popular song from Minnie Riperton, "Lovin' You" and The Temptations' "Just My Imagination.

It was a long five years waiting for a new Dianne Reeves CD. However, after spending this last month listening to WHEN YOU KNOW, over and over again, it was well worth the wait. Beautiful, clear, impeccable, Dianne's voice is one of the finest, and I mean that for all time. Dianne can stand next to Ella, Nina, Billie, Sarah and all the rest of them, and will be remembered as one of greatest vocalists in jazz music.

There is a theme to WHEN YOU KNOW: A woman's perspective of Love in all its stages and its many--and often contradictory--feelings. It's an album celebrating the different phases of love in a woman's life, from giddy naivete to seasoned knowledge.

Produced by George Duke and backed by some of the cream of contemporary jazz (among others, Billy Childs, Geoff Keezer, Steve Wilson, Romero Lubambo, Russell Malone, Antonio Sanchez, Lenny Castro, Karen Briggs), I can't choose one song to highlight, because each showcases Dianne's nuance and phrasing as a vocalist, and all play an integral part in the CD's overarching concept.

In my opinion, this is Dianne Reeve's best work to date. One word suffices to describe this woman and her work, that word is beauty.

It's been a while since I've gotten this excited about one of Dianne Reeves's studio recordings. I've attended her concerts at least once a year and, as so many others have commented, found the experience of hearing her live overshadows her studio sessions completely. Nothing since the album Bridges (1999) has come close to the kind of emotional and musical epiphany of experiencing her live. . . Until now.

There are quite a few live Dianne Reeves recordings available (including Live in Montreal and In the Moment: Live in Concert) which, along with seeing her live, have kept me hooked over the years. But her studio work since Bridges has been, I feel, more mainstream and less personal. "When You Know" harks back to the kind of album Bridges was: an eclectic selection of songs from many genres, with one original song ("Today Will Be a Good Day", inspired by her mother), some soaring straight ahead jazz scat singing, and an emotional flow from the first track to the last that creates the feeling of a story being told.

In fact, if you listen very closely, you'll hear some very sly lyrical references slipped into to certain tracks that link them more closely to each other. This is sort of in the vein of the Frank Sinatra "themed" albums, but much more personal and idiosyncratic.
