JAM Fest ’18: Don’t Explain – Musical Tribute to Billie Holiday
April 14, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Organizer: Jazzanooga, Phone:
Join us as we explore the life of Music Legend Billie Holiday through her music and performance led by Local Jazz / Gospel / Soul Artist, Mary Edwards!!
Billie Holiday was one of the most influential jazz singers of all time. Nicknamed “Lady Day” by her friend and music partner Lester Young, Holiday had a seminal influence on jazz music and pop singing. Her vocal style, strongly inspired by jazz instrumentalists, pioneered a new way of manipulating phrasing and tempo. She was known for her vocal delivery and improvisational skills, which made up for her limited range and lack of formal music education.
Cash Bar will be provided.
