Diane Schuur has inspired raves from around the world. She has been awarded two Grammys, twiced played the White House, and her recordings have been topping the charts. Acclaimed worldwide for her vocal versatility, she was discovered by Dizzy Gillespie; who brought her on stage at the 1979 Monterey Jazz Festival. She wowed the audience and jazz saxophonist Stan Getz, who became her mentor. After Stan Getz introduced her during a televised performance at the White House, Larry Rosen of GRP immediately signed her and she has been recording hits for the GRP label ever since.
The artist profiles on these pages were excerpted from the Carnegie Hall Tribute program. We present them here in an effort to recognize the artists that keep the music of Lady Ella alive through their repertoire.
