Product Description:

Personnel includes: Dee Dee Bridgewater (vocals); Theirry Eliez (piano, organ); Thomas Bramerie (double bass); Ali Jackson (drums, percussion).
Recorded live at Yoshi's, Oakland, California from April 23-25, 1998. Includes liner notes by Dan Quellette.
LIVE AT YOSHI'S was nominated for the 2001 Grammy Award for Best Jazz Vocal Album.
If there is ever an energy shortage on par with the one in the mid-'70s, it would behoove consumers to figure out how to harness what Dee Dee Bridgewater puts out. In this live set from Oakland's classy Yoshi's, one can't help but wonder if there's something that this immensely talented lady can't do. Whether it is interpreting lyrics of choice standards such as "Cherokee," "Stairway to the Stars" or "Love for Sale," sounding like Ella (or a trombone!), or doing a totally convincing version of James Brown's "Get Up I Feel Like Being a Sex Machine," Ms. Bridgewater is both electric and in charge. The precision with which the tasteful arrangements are executed is nearly frightening--these are not pick-up musicians. Listen to the groove-tambourine intro to "Slow Boat to China," the scat-trombone stylings on "Stairway to the Stars," and the breathtaking tempo of "What a Little Moonlight Can Do"--LIVE AT YOSHI'S is full of surprises like these and more.
