Rialto Center for the Arts
Dee Dee Bridgewater

NEA Jazz Master Dee Dee Bridgewater returns to Georgia State's Rialto Center for the Arts this Saturday, March 7 at 8 p.m. 

Over the course of her multifaceted career spanning four decades, the three-time Grammy winner and Tony Award-winning jazz vocalist has ascended to the upper echelon of vocalists, putting her unique spin on standards, as well as taking intrepid leaps of faith in re-envisioning jazz classics.

Ever the fearless voyager, explorer, pioneer and keeper of tradition. She has worked with the legendary Thad Jones/Mel Louis Big Band, and performed with such jazz notables as Max Roach, Sonny Rollins, Dexter Gordon and Dizzy Gillespie.

Joining Ms. Bridgewater on stage will Edsel Gomez on piano, Tabari Lake on bass and Tyson Jackson on drums. Attendees are also encouraged to come early for the pre-show talk featuring Dr. Gordon Vernick at 7:00 p.m. in the Rialto Lobby.
