With this exclusive concert from the opening week of our 2017-18 Season that was originally streamed on Fridays at Five in September, one NEA Jazz Master honors the legacy of another. In this fond remembrance of one of jazz’s greatest composers and a personal hero, 2017 NEA Jazz Master Dee Dee Bridgewater pays tribute to Silver, a 1995 honoree, with personal takes on his classics – material the vocalist and composer memorialized on her 2005 GRAMMY-nominated release Love and Peace: A Tribute to Horace Silver. Bridgewater has had a lengthy connection to the composer and pianist beginning in the early 1970s when her then-husband, trumpeter Cecil Bridgewater, began playing in Silver’s working band. She is joined here by a superb quintet including trumpeter Theo Croker, saxophonist Irwin Hall, pianist Michael King, bassist Eric Wheeler, and drummer Kush Abadey.
Premiered on 'Fridays at Five': SEP 4, 2020
