Dee Dee Bridgewater
+ Bill Laurance
Saturday 20 May
In a career that stretches back to the 60s, iconic jazz vocalist Dee Dee Bridgewater has stood shoulder to shoulder with many of music’s greats like Dizzy Gillespie and Sonny Rollins. She brings the UK premiere of her new album, inspired by the sound of Memphis R&B from the mid-late 1960s. Think Gladys Knight, Otis Redding, Al Green and Sam Cooke.
