Why See Kennedy Center Jazz - A Tribute to Abbey Lincoln?

A Tender Tribute to the Life and Music of Abbey Lincoln

Hailed as "the last of the great jazz singers" the late Abbey Lincoln was a songstress in the same class as Etta James and Billie Holliday. Carrying herself with a grace and dignity last seen on the stages of Golden era Hollywood, the singer and civil rights activist let her music do the talking, shying away from the demanding diva-esque qualities of her contemporaries. Now her life and work are celebrated in this special tribute presented by Kennedy Centre Jazz, under direction by Grammy Award-winning composer and producer Terry Lyne Carrington.

Iconic in her own right, Grammy and Tony-winning jazz vocalist Dee Dee Bridgewater will headline the celebration alongside Grammy Award-winning singer and double bassist Esperanza Spalding and fellow Grammy winner Dianne Reeves amongst others. Together they'll be performing Lincoln's own compositions including Afro Blue and Bird Alon.
