The Billie Holiday Project at the Blue Note

The Billie Holiday Project, led by Stella Heath, celebrates the music of Lady Day at the Blue Note on Sunday, Nov. 13, at 3 and 6:30 p.m. Shrouded in mystery as she was draped in furs, Holiday was multi-faceted, possessing the sensitivity and ability to make the songs she sang as personal as if she was singing them just to you. Featuring some of the Bay Area’s finest jazz musicians, The Billie Holiday Project evokes the electric and intimate feeling of experiencing Lady Day live in a 1930s jazz club. Drawing from some of her most recorded tunes such as “Blue Moon,” “Billie’s Blues,” “God Bless the Child” and “Strange Fruit,” the band also revives some of the earlier and lesser-known tunes that Holiday interpreted, interspersed stories of her life and musical artistry.
