Dee Dee's Feathers is a journey through the history of New Orleans as told through song and the collaboration of Dee Dee BridgewaterIrvin Mayfield & The New Orleans Jazz Orchestra. Recorded at New Orleans' Esplanade Studios, a studio in a reconverted historical church in the heart of the city that was badly damaged by Hurricane Katrina, Dee Dee's Feathers is a modern exploration of the music and culture that makes New Orleans a city and place unlike any other. Traditional songs such as "Big Chief" (featuring guest artist Dr. John), "Saint James Infirmary" and "What A Wonderful World" – all songs indicative to and steeped in the culture of the Big Easy – co-mingle with new compositions such as "Congo Square" and "C'est Ici Que Je T'aime," transporting the listener on a sensory voyage through the city, whether dancing in a Second Line or frequenting a storied bordello in the heart of the city's French Quarter.
