I had the pleasure of chatting recently with 4 time Grammy Award-winning vocalist Dianne Reeves and we concluded our interview with 10 questions that allow people to learn some new things about this incredible artist. This edition of Take Ten began when I asked Dianne about the very first record she remembered listening to. Enjoy!
