"Dee Dee Bridgewater has a technique and musicality that bests most performers of her generation, and her understanding of the "great American songbook" makes pretenders pale in comparison." -The Guardian
 
Accompanied by Memphis Soulphony - a big band with a horn section and 2 backup singers - Dee Dee will completely step away from jazz and dive into a thrilling set list of American blues and R&B classics, pouring out all the intelligence and power of a jazz diva into a night of Memphis Soul.

With the Memphis Soulphony, Dee Dee dips into her roots singing sultry and soulful interpretations of the Memphis music she grew up with.
