Dee Dee Bridgewater celebrating Lady Day at the Barbican, London

Dominus Vobiscum, pilgrims!

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: No-one does sexy & Jazz as a combo and pull it off with sophistication and musical finesse.  Step right up, Ms. Dee Bridgewater.

Yesterday’s gig at the Barbican to commemorate the Celebration of the Life of Lady Day (Ms Billie Holiday to ye the uninitiated!) nearly didn’t take place, thanks to the volcanic ash malarky spewing out from Iceland causing air travel havoc. Was that going to stop Ms Bridgewater? Does taking a Bus ride at 1 a.m the previous night from Stuttgart all the way just to make the performance come as dedication or what? :-)

Ms. Bridgewater is always a joy to photograph. For those of you who couldn’t make it, you missed one hell of a gig.  I could only stay for 2 songs, but hey! Better than nothing:

Ms. Bridgewater’s daughter, Ms China Moses, opened the show with a dedication to Dinah Washington:

That’s it for now, pilgrims!
