Dee Dee Bridgewater

Over the course of a multifaceted career that has spanned four decades, Grammy and Tony Award-winning Jazz-diva Dee Dee Bridgewater has risen to the top tier of today’s vocalists. She is known for putting her own unique spin on standards as well as taking intrepid leaps of faith in re-envisioning jazz classics.

Dee Dee Bridgewater, born in Memphis, Tennessee, began her career in the early 70s and has sung with several of the great jazz musicians of that period, like Sonny Rollins, Dexter Gordon, Dizzy Gillespie, etc. She has a large catalog with multiple Grammy-winning albums and is considered a great jazz voice internationally. Especially known for her great timing and raspy vibrato.

She has been at the Kongsberg Jazzfestival several times before and there’s a reason why she gets invited back!
