Dee Dee Bridgewater Jazz
Raised in Flint, Michigan, Bridgewater was the daughter of Matt Garrett, a jazz trumpet
player and teacher. It was through his influence that she was exposed to jazz at a tender age. She began singing at the age
of 16 in a rock and rhythm and blues trio performing in Michigan clubs. A studied musician, Bridgewater attended Michigan
State University and later the University of Illinois at Urban-Champaign. After meeting and marrying trumpeter Cecil Bridgewater,
they moved to the Big Apple. It was there that she performed with many of the best musicians in the history of jazz music.
Greats such as Sonny Rollins, Dizzy Gillespie, Dexter Gordon, Max Roach, Saharan Roland Kirk and many others. In 1974 she
captured the Tony Award for her role as Glinda the Good Witch in the Broadway musical, The Wiz, as best featured actress.
Not surprisingly she has performed on stage as Billie Holiday in Lady Day after moving to Paris in 1986. Much like Holiday,
she reaches down deep inside herself and hands the audience her heart. She has a mature, soulful and genuinely unique take
on the expression of every song she performs. Each piece is not just sung but acted out in the characters that are born out
of Bridgewater imagination and with that springs a fresh interpretation. With 15 recordings spanning from the 1974 Afro Blue
to the 2011 hit, Midnight Sun, Bridgewater has encompassed a vast variety of jazz sounds flowing from her own signature voice!
