Dee Dee Bridgewater could scat before she could talk. This is what she has told interviewers and anyone who has seen her live will believe it immediately. Some see her as the legitimate heir to jazz legend Ella Fitzgerald. Without doubt the multi award-winning American jazz singer and actress follows in the tradition of jazz divas like Nina Simone, Abbey Lincoln, Betty Carter and Billie Holiday – in a stage career which has now lasted almost 50 years. She is someone who can do virtually everything; blues and soul, Gershwin and Weill. And all without notes. So what? Welcome to Dee Dee Bridgewater!
