Lady Sings The Blues

Share:

Billie Holiday, alongside Marilyn Monroe and James Dean, is one of the most enduring popular icons of the 20th century. Frank Sinatra wrote “every major pop singer in the US has been touched by her genius. She was and still remains the greatest single musical influence on me. Lady Day is unquestionably the most important influence on American popular singing in the last 20 years”

Lady Sings The Blues presents the music of Billie Holiday chronologically through the 1930s, 1940s and 1950s using many of the original arrangements. It is the closest that any of us will ever get to hearing that tremendous repertoire performed live, properly, just as it was when it was first performed all those years ago.

Lady Sings The Blues features six of the top British Jazz Award Winning musicians and a remarkable singer. The Guardian wrote “Val Wiseman gave an uncanny reproduction of the Holiday sound and style. Arrangements are based on the original records, but with solos often surpassing the old masters”

The lineup is:
Vocals – Val Wiseman
Trumpet – Digby Fairweather
Saxophone – Julian Stringle
Trombone – Roy Williams
Piano – Brian Dee
Bass – Len Skeat
Drums – Eric Ford
