Dee Dee Bridgewater - This Is New (2002) Retail CD
Bridgewater is well established at Verve now and the confidence that such a relatively long-term relationship instils is well in evidence on This Is New, an album-long investigation of Kurt Weill's compositions. She is given a variety of settings, from strings to small groups, and her approach to Weill's music is similarly varied. She scats on "Lost In The Stars", croons with great sensuality on "My Ship" and brings an appropriate sense of mystery to "Bilbao Song". Of course a fascination with Weill is not new in jazz circles. Looking past the obvious with Louis Armstrong's "Mack The Knife", wemore… have Miles Davis, Gil Evans and Nina Simone all contributing major reassessments and realignments in previous decades. Not all of her rethinks are successful--her "Alabama Song" is not a patch on Jim Morrison's, let alone Bowie's, although organist Thierry Eliez gets off a funky solo before the band interpolates Blakey's "Blues March" theme and Dee Dee scats a bit more. That's a low point, but there are plenty enough high points to make this worth investigating. --Keith Shadwick
