My next guest is Dee Dee Bridgewater, who 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 month. I spoke with Dee Dee at the Blue Note Tokyo before she played a gig last month.
