How is your French?
Earlier this month on Facebook, Dee Dee Bridgewater posted this video -- a news piece about an attractive vocalist coming to Jazz a Vienne in France. The reporter begins by noting that the singer looks familiar, and there's a reason.
At the conclusion of the piece, China Moses and her mother are onstage, in action -- China in the foreground, DDB at her side. China's current album is a tribute to Dinah Washington. Her pianist is Raphael Lemonnier. Their label is Blue Note in Europe. China's website has more.
