Artist: Hopkins, Linda

This DVD, Linda Hopkins: Deep in the Night, features the soulful vocals of Jazz and Blues singer Linda Hopkins. Hopkins fell in love with Blues music after seeing Bessie Smith perform. She has starred in Broadway musicals such as Jazz Train, which celebrated the success of African-American music, Black and Blue, a tribute to Harlem’s famed Cotton Club, and Inner City, for which she won a Tony Award. Hopkins also created two famous tribute musicals; Wild Women Blues was performed alongside Maxine Weldon & Mortonette Jackson as a tribute to Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, and Bessie Smith, and more famously her one-woman show, entitled Me and Bessie, which she created in honor of her idol Bessie Smith.

 

" Hopkins progresses from rollicking to racy, sinful to solemn,

proving herself worthy of her idol Bessie Smith. Great artist,

great album…”                             -Christopher Loudon, JazzTimes

 

The Ad Lib Series, now available on DVD for the first time, is a collection of 46 concert TV programs presenting the best Jazz, Pop and Blues artists showcasing their skills with a Jazz flair.  Seen on TV internationally, Ad Lib (filmed in 1980) was the first musical television series recorded in Stereo. Each DVD features 2 episodes of the acclaimed Ad Lib Series.

 

"Linda Hopkins was born to be an entertainer…. She comes

alive on stage, her smile and spirit infectious as she rouses

her audience to join her on this blues journey. She's simply

sensational."                                                 – LA Jazz Scene

 

Besides Broadway musicals, Hopkins is also a popular face at Jazz festivals, as well as acting for TV and films. Having performed for three United States Presidents, she won accolades for not only her voice but her impeccable acting abilities. With a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, Hopkins has been recognized as a versatile entertainer, as well as one of the premiere voices of her generation despite never receiving the household name-recognition worthy of one of the world’s great talents.

 

"Her range is astonishingly wide, and her effervescent

personality undiminished. Hopkins remains a commanding,

at times risque, interpreter of the blues."

    -  Living Blues Magazine

 

Also featuring special guests Jazz Pianist Paul Smith, longtime pianist & Musical Director for Ella Fitzgerald, & acclaimed & versatile Jazz saxophone innovator Eddie Harris, Linda Hopkins: Deep in the Night, is the definitive DVD of Hopkins’ legendary voice.

 

 “The blues, gospel, jazz and the name of Linda Hopkins

are synonymous.”                               - Los Angeles Sentinel
