Diane Schuur – Running On Faith

  • Grammy nominated 5 times and winner of Two Grammy Awards vocalist/pianist Diane Schuur creates new versions of songs on her new release Running On Faith; with music from Paul Simon to Percy Mayfield to Paul McCartney
  • Diane Schuur’s strength as a pianist matches her power as a vocalist, as she incorporates blues, gospel, straight-ahead jazz, and more

Diane Schuur, who has sometimes been on the periphery of jazz, balances her importance as a dedicated jazz singer with the inclusion of a large dose of pop tunes in her repertoire. Early in her career she had the tendency to screech in her upper register, but with maturity that flaw has largely disappeared and she has become a very impressive singer. Blinded at birth due to a hospital accident, Schuur (who would later be nicknamed “Deedles”) imitated singers as a child. She had her first gig at a Holiday Inn when just ten years old and originally sang country music.

All About Jazz’s Victor L. Schermer declares, ”Ms. Schuur surely is among the very best jazz vocalists, and she exemplifies if not redefines the ‘diva’ category with her warm, often humorous, and relaxed interactions with the audience and the musicians. Her mere presence is enough to make for a memorable evening.”
