More About

Dee Dee Bridgewater has been at this for a while. The jazz singer (and U.N. ambassador) has been performing in New York since 1970, and now she’s got Grammy awards to show for it. But it’s her ability to interpret the flavor of her surroundings that makes this saucy Tennessee songstress really feel like our own, and her collaborations with the great musicians of our time — like Sonny Rollins, Dizzy Gillespie, and Dexter Gordon, among many others — make her the perfect headliner for the 2014 Benefit Concert for the National Jazz Museum in Harlem tonight. Bridgewater performs alongside rising star and director-at-large Jonathan Batiste. Lisa Staiano-Coico, president of City College, and pianist McCoy Tyner are honored at this year’s awards ceremony. At Kaye Playhouse at Hunter College.
