Recipient of the Jazz Legends Award and Friday night headliner, Diane Schuur’s performance at the 2015 Palm Springs Women’s Jazz Festival brought the house down.┬áThere are few living jazz vocalists whom you can mention in the same sentence with Sarah, Dinah and Ella. Diane Schuur, however, can take her place among the best. A fixture on the jazz scene for more than 20 years Schuur has consistently delivered with 2 Grammy’s and 3 Grammy nominations to prove it. Born blind but with perfect musical pitch she claims as her major influence Dinah Washington and said she was singing “What a Difference a Day Makes” as a small child. She has played with everyone from Basie to BB King and everywhere from the Kennedy Center to the White House.

Enjoy her CD, “I Remember You (with love to Stan and Frank),” a tribute to Frank Sinatra and Stan Getz.
