4.0 out of 5 stars Scat Wizard, 7 Aug 2007
This review is from: Live in Paris (Audio CD)
This live recording was made in November 1986. Listen to this and its apparent that Bridgewater is blessed with a great vocal gift. Her range, pitch control, and phrasing are all excellent and the opening 'All Blues' demonstrates this as well as any track on the album.

Playing with Dee Dee Bridgewater are a French Trio consisting of:
Herve Sellin - Piano
Antoine Bonfils - Bass
Andre Ceccarelli - Drums

There are two reasons why I've only given this 4 stars. Firstly good as the trio is, I felt that a quartet would have been better - perhaps a Saxophone. Secondly if you buy this album you'll have to like scat singing. I'm not a huge fan of it and whilst I appreciate the skill and undoubted talent required, found that after a few tracks I needed a break (where the saxophone would have helped). This is just my personal taste, and I have the same problem when listeing to Ella Fitzgerald.

If you enjoy scat singing, there is no problem. Bridgewater is a great talent performing some lovely material to an enthusiatic audience.
