2017 release. The story of Dee Dee Bridgewater's stunning album, Memphis...Yes, I'm Ready, begins in that city, where she was born at Collins Chapel Hospital, located not far from where the album was recorded. Dee Dee's father, a trumpet player, also affectionately known as "Matt the Platter Cat", was a DJ at WDIA, the top Memphis radio station. Even when the family moved to neighboring Flint, Michigan, as a young girl Dee Dee would listen to the great sounds of the Memphis music scene by tuning-in late night from across state lines. And oh what a music scene it was! Dee Dee was determined to recapture the same magic and history of the blues, R&B and soul classics in the recordings that were originally made in or associated with Memphis including 'The Thrill Is Gone,' 'Try A Little Tenderness,' 'Can't Get Next To You' and 'I Can't Stand the Rain.' 'The result of this recording is an album that sounds like Memphis and feels like Memphis but also, sounds and feels as only a Dee Dee Bridgewater album can.'
