Interview: Jazz entertainer Dee Dee Bridgewater

R-Dee Dee

Dee Dee Bridgewater is not only a jazz singer who has won three Grammy Awards and performed with Dizzy Gillespie, Sonny Rollins and Dexter Gordon, but also a stage actress who won a Tony Award for her performance in The Wiz and was acclaimed for her portrayal of Billie Holiday in Lady Day

Dee Dee has played in Japan many times, most recently as part of an all-star line-up at International Jazz Day in Osaka earlier this year. I spoke with Dee Dee before she played a gig at the Blue Note Tokyo a few days after that.


グラミー賞を3度獲得し、ディジー・ガレスピーやソニー・ロリンズ、デクスター・ゴードンといった有名ジャズメンとの共演だけでなく、ミュージカル「Wiz」ではトニー賞を受賞し、ビリー・ホリデーを題材としたミュージカル「Lady Day」の主役を務めた女優としての活躍も高い評価を受けています。
