Over the past four decades, Grammy and Tony Award-winning Dee Dee Bridgewater has ascended to the upper echelon of vocalists, putting her unique spin on standards, as well as taking intrepid leaps of faith in re-envisioning jazz classics.

In this new collaboration with trumpeter Irvin Mayfield and the New Orleans 7 (a pared-down version of Mayfield’s New Orleans Jazz Orchestra), Bridgewater will explore a modern vision for traditional songs such as “Big Chief,” “Saint James Infirmary,” and “What a Wonderful World” as well as exciting new compositions “Congo Square” and “C’est Ici Que Je T’aime.”

style: vocal jazz / traditional New Orleans
