DIMA and the Noel Jewkes Quartet
Dima began to develop her style as a jazz singer while studying with Merrill Hoover, a well known jazz pianist best known for his eloquent accompaniment of vocalists such as Ernestine Anderson, Anita O’Day, and Mary Stallings. This rare opportunity set the foundation for her to establish her own unique approach to singing as she fell in love with the jazz standard.
Known for her command of the lyric, beautiful soothing tone, soulful improvisation, and carefully chosen repertoire, Dima keeps alive the true art of the jazz singer.
This afternoon, Dima is singing with a fabulous quartet led by the highly regarded reed player Noel Jewkes. The rhythm section features some of the best players in the business – Grant Levin on piano, Ron Belcher on bass and Deszon Claiborne on drums.
