Bridgewater, Dee Dee
Okeh, 2015, CD
Instrument: Female Vocals
Jazz Ruler Type: Ballads, Blues
O’s Notes: Veteran jazz vocalist Dee Dee Bridgewater takes a trip to the Crescent City where she teams up with trumpeter Irvin Mayfield and the New Orleans Jazz Orchestra. She hasn’t lost her magic and does a wonderful job mimicking Irvin’s notes, scatting and bending the lyrics to fit the groove of the band and the mood of the composer. The music takes us on a trip through the history of New Orleans Jazz. We can assure you that the stories are packed full of emotion making this an enjoyable, entertaining set!
