Dee Dee Bridgewater – In Montreux

Dee Dee Bridgewater – In Montreux
Year: 1990
Label: Polydor (1991)
Total time: 49:53

Dee Dee Bridgewater’s move to France awhile back has resulted in her having a relatively low profile in jazz. This excellent live set should help restore her reputation.
Whether it be a three-song Horace Silver medley, the warhorse «All of Me,» Jobim’s «How Insensitive,» «Night in Tunisia» or the rarely performed «Strange Fruit,» Bridgewater ( who is backed by a French rhythm section ) is in top form, singing with swing and sensitivity. ~ Scott Yanow, AMG
