Dian Schurr

Carrera Production presents Diane Schuur’s “I Remember You:” The Music of Frank Sinatra, Stan Getz, and Other Schuur Catalog Gems.

Diane Schuur is one of those rare singers, like Sinatra and Judy Garland, both superb vocalist and alluring entertainer. Through standards from the great American songbook, her singing conjures the emotions that burn in our hearts, wild romance, and the thirst for love and happiness. Ms. Schuur embraces this music with artistic integrity and deep respect for the lyrics, giving true meaning to the elegance and swing of both Sinatra and Getz. [Brent Black, Bop-N-Jazz Review]

In Diane’s own words, “Stan Getz was a great friend as well as a mentor. He taught me less is more when singing into the microphone. The microphone can be your friend. You don’t have to shout out every note and he also instilled the importance of enunciating while singing the words to a song.

“I had the honor to perform with Frank Sinatra as a replacement for Liza Minnelli who was ill. Everyone was against it except Frank. He gave me a chance to be part of his group. Once I started singing, the audience responded quite positively to his choice. We had many intimate conversations about life and my blindness. He ended up painting a beautiful abstract canvas for me, which hangs in my home. He said to me I have so much beauty in my life I wish I could give you my eyes for one day to see this beautiful world we live in. Then he realized I could see it too in my own way.”
