Over the course of a multifaceted career spanning over four decades, Grammy and Tony Award-winning jazz giant and NEA Jazz Master 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. She also bears the title of Memphis Music Hall of Fame Inductee, UN Goodwill Ambassador, Doris Duke Artist Award recipient, and ASCAP Champion, along with leading her non-profit for women in Jazz, The Woodshed Network. With Memphis, I’m Ready, Bridgewater has gone back to her beginning…Memphis, TN. Born in the city known for its pivotal role in American culture, music, and civil rights struggle, she is part of an American legacy. Bridgewater’s childhood nights were spent tuning into Memphis’ WDIA, the first radio station in the nation featuring all-black programming. It was also the station where her father spun vinyl as the on-air disc jockey. This joyous project is not only a return to Bridgewater’s roots, but also offers a ground-breaking reimagining of American Blues and R&B classics. This is Dee Dee Bridgewater’s SMF debut.
