SFJazz would be hard pressed to find an artist better suited than Dee Dee Bridgewater to kick off the organization’s sixth season on Thursday, Sept. 7, in its sumptuously appointed jazz center. A major figure since the early 1970s, she’s collaborated with a pantheon of departed jazz giants, and she’s deeply invested in championing the rising generation of players. Recently named a 2017 National Endowment for the Arts Jazz Master, Bridgewater embodies jazz history as a boundlessly inventive improviser committed to the notion that serious music can be seriously entertaining.
