Global icon Dee Dee Bridgewater is a multiple Grammy winner, Tony winner, music producer, United Nations goodwill ambassador, and jazz vocal legend.
Bridgewater’s career began in the 1970s as a featured vocalist with the fabled Thad Jones/Mel Lewis Jazz Orchestra. Her creative path has led her to Broadway, a long-term creative residency in Paris, numerous acclaimed recordings as a leader, and a position at the forefront of jazz and gender justice.
This concert, featuring Bridgewater performing with varied ensembles and musical settings, will explore the scope of her storied career. The concert is produced by Gabrielle Goodman, Berklee College of Music voice professor; Terri Lyne Carrington, Berklee Institute of Jazz and Gender Justice artistic director; and Phil Lima, assistant chair of the Voice Department.
