“At the centennial of Billie Holiday’s birth, we celebrate a jazz singer of monumental innovation. Holiday was an unapologetically organic artist, once stating: “I don’t sing novelty. The things that I sing have to do with me and my life. It has to have a meaning.” Vocalists Andy Bey, Molly Johnson, and Sarah Elizabeth Charles will perform repertoire such as ‘Don’t Explain,’ ‘You Go To My Head,’ and ‘Strange Fruit.’ This occasion will be the first time this trio shares one stage at Jazz at Lincoln Center.”
