Overview

Following her award-winning soundtrack to the film Good Night, and Good Luck, Grammy-winning vocalist Dianne Reeves once again teams up with George Duke (her cousin!) for a set that spans jazz standards and pop hits. Of the latter, there's "Just My Imagination" and the Minnie Riperton classic "Lovin' You." Cy Coleman's "I'm in Love Again" and Michel Legrand's "The Windmills of Your Mind" complete the jazzier side of Reeve's multifaceted foray. Her voice, as expected, is in magnificent form.

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Michael G. Nastos
Dianne Reeves has deservedly been hoisted on high as one of the top five jazz voices in the decade of the 2000s. Her four Grammy Awards and her music from the movie soundtrack Good Night, and Good Luck solidified Reeves' upper-echelon placement. When You Know showcases languid and lush pop songs, with producer George Duke doing more than his share to give Reeves an orchestrated backdrop to sing songs she likes, including a string quartet and the guitar of Romero Lubambo. Her most impressive straight jazz cover, "Social Call" sports a second-chorus extrapolated lyric over the Wes Montgomery-styled electric guitar of Russell Malone. There's nothing phony or pretentious about this one. "Windmills of Your Mind" has an interesting modal arrangement within a waltz framework, and "Once I Loved" is also done nicely. Lubambo is the shining light of the session, heard on nine tracks in his own inimitable, passionate, classy manner.
New York Times - Nate Chinen
Love holds fast as the focus of When You Know, the glossy new Blue Note release by Dianne Reeves. More precisely it’s the inner response to love that Ms. Reeves explores, applying her impressive voice to suggestions of euphoria, melancholy, anticipation and above all to a searching self-reflection.
