Dizzy Gillespie thinks shes divine. B.B. King thinks shes brilliant. Find out for yourself when Diane Schuur takes the stage backed by the University of Houston jazz orchestra today. Blessed with a three-and-a-half octave range, the Grammy Award winner has performed with musical greats Stan Getz, Maynard Ferguson and Quincy Jones. Schuurs easy, swinging style masks her technical proficiency; her bright voice leaps up and down the scale with no apparent effort. Not only can you can expect to hear songs like The Very Thought of You, Come Rain or Come Shine and Teach Me Tonight, you can expect to hear them done very, very well. 7:30 p.m. Miller Outdoor Theatre, 100 Concert Drive, in Hermann Park.
