Dee Dee Bridgewater
's move to France awhile back has resulted in her having a relatively low profile in jazz. This excellent live set should help restore her reputation. Whether it be a three-song Horace Silver
medley, the warhorse "All of Me," Jobim
's "How Insensitive," "Night in Tunisia" or the rarely performed "Strange Fruit," Bridgewater
(who is backed by a French rhythm section) is in top form, singing with swing and sensitivity.
