    Born in Chicago in 1930, Abbey Lincoln was raised in rural Michigan and went to a one-room school. Toward the end of her life, Lincoln asked her friend Dee Dee Bridgewater to help keep the Abbey Lincoln songbook alive. On May 20, 2011, at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C., with Dianne Reeves, Bridgewater began to fulfill her promise. This is a remounted version of that performance, redesigned as a touring piece, featuring Dee Dee Bridgewater, Dianne Reeves, and Terri Lyne Carrington.
