The Album Everything Must Change is a live recording that was part of the Ad Lib TV Series recorded in 1981 at the very start of her career, in which the now legendary Dianne Reeves appeared with acclaimed Jazz artists, like pianist Billy Childs and trumpeter Snooky Young. A Jazz icon in every sense of the word, Reeves is a fearless singer, unafraid to break the mold by experimenting outside her genre. Her expansive range, precise pitch, rhythmic and instinctual timing, and powerful yet graceful style have created an intoxicating sound for the singer who enchants and fascinates everyone lucky enough to hear her beautiful voice. The Album features some of the iconic songs from the Great American songbook, such as “Stormy Weather” and “Love for Sale”, and showcases Dianne Reeve’s ability to breathe new air into old beloved tunes.The song “Answer Me” was featured in Barbra Streisand’s 1977 Album “Superman”. The Album hit #3 on the Billboard Charts. The song was written especially for Barbra Streisand, and the movie “A Star is Born”.

In 2018 the National Endowment for the Arts designated Reeves an NEA Jazz Master — the highest honor the United States bestows on jazz artists.“Like Sarah Vaughan, she has the resources of an opera singer who has chosen jazz. Her voice is clear and robust; it is an instrument that celebrates itself through its sheer power… one of the greatest living jazz singers” – Stephen Holden, New York Times
