The pre-eminent jazz vocalist in the world, Grammy Award-winning Dianne Reeves rings in the holiday season with music from her celebrated album, Christmas Time Is Here.

Ben Ratliff of The New York Times raves, "Ms. Reeves, a jazz singer of frequently astonishing skill, takes the assignment seriously, this is one of the best jazz Christmas CDs I've ever heard." Renowned for her breathtaking virtuosity, improvisational prowess, and unique jazz and R&B stylings, Reeves will warm your heart with holiday cheer.
