Overview

The Music for Lovers series from EMI and Blue Note spotlights the balladic nature and romantic side of the artists who have recorded for its associated labels. Dianne Reeves performs in a variety of settings here, singing standards from the vocal jazz world as well as R&B and art rock. Beginning with an excellent 1982 reading of "My Funny Valentine" with Billy Childs, the volume picks up two Reeves performances from the late '80s (including one with Herbie Hancock), several from the late '90s (including a version of Leonard Cohen's "Suzanne"), and three from 2000 (including Reeves' own "Come In" with George Duke).
