This event (originally recorded live April 15, 2017, at the Alberta Rose Theatre) is being presented online for the first time in honor of Billie Holiday’s Birthday. This concert brought together musicians of many genres to pay tribute to one of the greatest jazz singers and songwriters of our time.
Billie Holiday, also known as “Lady Day,” was an American jazz singer and songwriter. Holiday was a hugely formative influence on jazz and pop singing. Her vocal style, strongly inspired by jazz instrumentalists, pioneered a new way of manipulating phrasing and tempo. Above all, she was admired all over the world for her deeply personal and intimate approach to singing.
Proceeds from this event are going to support the Portland Opportunities Industrialization Center + Rosemary Anderson High School, Siren Nation, the Alberta Rose Theatre and the participating artists.
