A restless explorer who has collaborated with master musicians of Mali, interpreted the cabaret of Kurt Weill, and embraced the hard bop of Horace Silver, 2017 NEA Jazz Master Dee Dee Bridgewater is joined by GRAMMY-winning pianist Charlap for these intimate duo performances.

Since she first gained recognition in the early 1970s with the great Thad Jones/Mel Lewis Orchestra, Bridgewater has thrived wherever she’s landed, from Broadway, where she earned a Tony Award for her work in the original production of The Wiz, to Paris, where she spent more than a decade as France’s greatest champion of jazz.

She hosted NPR’s syndicated radio show JazzSet with Dee Dee Bridgewater, which ran for a staggering 23 years before its end in 2014, and her most recent O’Keh release, Memphis… Yes, I’m Ready, is a celebration of the Memphis soul and R&B of her youth.
