Congratulations are in order for Dee Dee Bridgewater, a longtime friend to WBGO and host of JazzSet for many years.
In addition to a recent Grammy nomination, Ms. Bridgewater's latest CD, Eleanora Fagan (1915-1959): To Billie With Love From Dee Dee, has been nominated for an Image Award from the NAACP for Outstanding Jazz Album.
Fox will broadcast the awards show on March 4 at 8 p.m. -- in the meantime, tune in on Sunday and Wednesday evenings to hear JazzSet on your radio, or listen online to the latest edition (or browse the archives.)
From all of us at WBGO: Good luck, Dee Dee!
