This night celebrates the release of Bridgewater’s new Okeh Records album devoted to the music and spirit of her hometown, Memphis…Yes, I’m Ready. Steeped in civil rights history and one of the great hotbeds of American music, the city locals call “Soulsville” has a very special, highly personal place in Bridgewater’s heart. She performs the soul, blues and R&B she heard when her father, trumpeter Matthew Garrett, was a DJ on WDIA radio including classics by B.B. King, Otis Redding, B.B. King, and Bobby Blue Bland. Recorded at Lawrence “Boo” Mitchell’s historic Royal Studios, Memphis…Yes, I’m Ready was co-produced by GRAMMY-winning saxophonist Kirk Whalum.
