Hey Dee Dee B!

Dee Dee Bridgewater in concert – Sydney Opera House – Saturday 28 May 2011

Wow! I am not an R & B or Jazz aficionado, and was only here because my R & B devoted Fahmi bought tickets to the concert for my gorgeous guy and I so we could go with him, and so my expectations weren’t high (even though she was singing songs by Billie Holiday, who I love: yes I don’t love R & B or jazz – don’t hate them either – but I adore the Ragtime/Big Band sound…go figure) but man what a dame! Her voice is awesomely good, she made Billie Holiday’s songs her own, had a kickass band, and was funny, down to earth and just plain good fun.

What a wonderful surprise! I must check out more of this fine woman’s work and so should you!
