Product Description:

On this impressive 2007 outing, revered singer Dee Dee Bridgewater celebrates her Malian heritage with a set that deftly mixes African music with jazz. In addition to performing a bright, jaunty rendition of one of her signature numbers, "Afro Blue," Bridgewater stands out on the percussive "Bad Spirits (Bani)" and the gentle "Oh My Love (Djarabi)." One of the finest worldbeat/jazz albums of '07, RED EARTH is essential for Bridgewater fans, and will appeal to aficionados of both jazz vocals and West Africa's griot tradition.
