Velvet Voices: Girl Singers of the Big Band Era
Join Mike Plaskett, from radio's Rhythm Sweet & Hot, for a series (on third Wednesdays) on some of the men and women who impacted jazz music throughout the 30s, 40s and 50s. This month we will appreciate blues icon Billie Holiday, known as "Lady Day." The turbulent life of one of the most talented vocalists of all time took her from the clubs of Harlem to Carnegie Hall, and Holiday's innovative, improvisational style influenced jazz musicians and singers to this day.
