New York, NY (January 7, 2018) – Jazz at Lincoln Center will be setting the mood for Valentine’s Day with a weeklong celebration of love and live music in two of the most romantic venues in New York City. In Rose Theater, 2018 NEA Jazz Master Dianne Reeves (February 15–16) will return to the House of Swing with her effortlessly powerful sound, and broad spectrum of sensual repertoire for the eighth consecutive Valentine’s Day celebration. Joining Reeves is her stellar ensemble – music director and pianist Peter Martin, guitarist Romero Lubambo, bassist Reginald Veal, and drummer Terreon Gully. Freddy Cole Quartet: Songs for Lovers (February 7–10) will kick off the week at Dizzy’s Club, followed by Kim Nalley: Love Songs (February 14–17) – a special prix-fixe menu will be offered on Valentine’s Day.

Rose Theater and Dizzy’s Club are located in Frederick P. Rose Hall, home of Jazz at Lincoln Center, at 60th Street and Broadway in New York City. For additional information, visit jazz.org

For those celebrating love at home, Jazz at Lincoln Center offers two exclusive Spotify playlists – “Jazz for Hopeless Romantics,” featuring 13 timeless tracks by artists past and present, including Chet Baker, Kurt Elling, Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, and Diane Schuur; and “Dianne Reeves’ V-Day Mixtape” featuring Reeves’s own favorite songs as well as romantic tracks by Nina Simone, Al Green, Sullivan Fortner, Geri Allen, Ron Carter, and Jimmy Cobb. The full playlists are available for enjoyment on Spotify

Valentine’s Day Weekend Lineup:

February 7–10 | 7:30pm & 9:30pm | Dizzy’s Club

Referred to as a “national treasure” by the Huffington Post, 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 25 years, three of which were nominated for Grammy Awards, Cole has carved out a reputation as an individual and prolific force in the jazz world. Amongst the greatest contemporary crooners, Cole’s sensitivity and effortlessly powerful delivery make him an enduring favorite in our most intimate venue and a perfect artist to enjoy this Valentine’s Day week.
Cover: Thurs $40 / Fri, Sat $45 / Sun $35

February 14–17 | 7:30pm & 9:30pm | Dizzy’s Club

The incomparable vocalist Kim Nalley sings jazz's greatest love songs on Valentine's Day. Treat yourself and your valentine with an unforgettable night of live jazz in front of a glittering New York skyline and a special prix-fixe menu. Returning to Jazz at Lincoln Center after sold-out runs in Dizzy’s Club and The Appel Room, Nalley packs an expansive vocal range that can go from operatic to gritty blues on a dime, channeling real emotion into blistering scat solos, hushed ballads, and everything in between. Jazz vocalists have long been a favorite source of romance on Valentine’s Day, and Kim Nalley takes it to the highest level.
Cover: Thurs $160 / Fri, Sat $45 / Sun $35
