Dee Dee Bridgewater

Dee Dee Bridgewater is known mostly for her role as Glenda the Good Witch in the original Broadway cast of The Wiz, so this, her first LP, should win a wider following. Produced by Stanley Clarke and backed by Chick Corea, Harvey Mason and Scarlet Rivera, Dee Dee turns out a well-paced, jazz-flavored set; her voice is warm and smooth on cuts like Maybe Today and soars in the title tune. Bridgewater is bewitching.
