Legendary jazz vocalist, majoring in scat(!) makes her first South Florida appearance for South Florida JAZZ to close the 2020 season, the organization’s 28th.
Over the course of a multifaceted career, Grammy® and Tony® Award-winning jazz giant Dee Dee Bridgewater reached the upper echelon of vocalists, putting her unique spin on standards, as well as taking intrepid leaps of faith in re-structuring jazz classics. A fearless explorer and keeper of tradition, the three-time Grammy-winner won the Grammy for Best Jazz Vocal Album for Eleanora Fagan (1915-1959): To Billie With Love From Dee Dee. In addition, in 2017, Ms. Bridgewater was the recipient of the NEA Jazz Masters Fellowship, the highest award our nation bestows upon jazz artists.
