Vocalist/pianist Diane Schuur is as eclectic as she is brilliant. Blind since birth, Schuur taught herself piano by ear and developed a rich, resonant vocal style early on. A longtime disciple of Dinah Washington and other legendary jazz singers of the ’40s and ’50s, Schuur has built a career by embracing not only the jazz of her parents’ generation, but also the pop music of her own youth during the late 1950s and ’60s. In a recording career that spans nearly three decades — and includes two GRAMMY Awards and three GRAMMY nominations — Schuur’s music has explored nearly every corner of the 20th century American musical landscape. Hear Schuur in conversation, along with GRAMMY Foundation Vice President Scott Goldman, about her long-regarded career, the constant tight-rope she walks between jazz and pop and her new album, The Gathering. After the discussion, Schuur will take questions from the audience and perform a selection of songs.
