New Music On WCLK From Dee Dee Bridgewater

Aug 24, 2015

Dee Dee Bridgewater's new release on Okeh is titled Dee Dee's Feathers and she has teamed up with one of my favorite New Orleans trumpeters, Irvin Mayfield & The New Orleans Jazz Orchestra. The record is a wonderful combination of Dee Dee's voice on top of that awesome New Orleans sound. Listen to WCLK and you will hear a wonderful arrangement of Saint James Infirmary, Big Chief- featuring Dr. John, Come Sunday, Congo Square and the Treme song/Do Whatcha Wanna. This is another great work of art that is a must for anyone's jazz collection.
