February 10-11, 8pm
Dianne Reeves will assuredly set the mood for this beloved Jazz at Lincoln Center tradition as she returns for the sixth time to seduce audiences with songs and stories of love and romance. Her alluring sound, fondness of love songs, and unusually broad spectrum of sensual repertoire promises a special Valentine's Day weekend performance. With nuanced restraint and dynamics, Reeves inhabits every story she spins into song. The fifteen-time GRAMMY® Award winner has long revered New York City and often chooses to spend her Valentine's Day in this shimmering city of romance. Of course, there's no better place to experience this occasion with Reeves than her "home away from home" in the center of the Big Apple, the elegant and intimate Rose Theater.
Tickets start at $40.


February 9-12, 7:30pm and 9:30pm
Jazz pianist and singer Freddy Cole is a prolific artist of undisputed pedigree. Building his career at the same time as his brother, the iconic Nat “King” Cole, it was never going to be easy for Cole to establish his own musical identity. However, with 20 albums released in just the last two decades, including the GRAMMY® Award-nominated 2010 album, Freddy Cole Sings Mr. B, Cole has carved out a reputation as an individual and powerful force in the jazz world. Amongst the greatest contemporary crooners, Cole’s sensitivity and powerful delivery make him the perfect artist for Valentine’s Day weekend.
Pre-Paid Reservations: Thursday, Friday $40 / Saturday $45 / Sunday $35

February 14, 7pm and 9:30pm
Soulful vocalist Brianna Thomas returns to Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola for a seductive Valentine’s Day performance. Thomas is a versatile young performer oozing with personality, and she is particularly adept when it comes to the blues and ballads, promising a perfect soundtrack for romance. She will perform selections from her 2014 critically-acclaimed debut album You Must Believe in Love for this special evening. Songs include “Bye Bye Blackbird,” “Lover of my Soul,” “In a Mellow Tone,” “Stardust,” and originals like “Bree’s Blues.” In the candlelit jazz club overlooking Columbus Circle, Thomas and her first-rate band will leave audiences with a Valentine’s Day evening to remember.
