Billie Holliday and Carmen McRae: A Beautiful Friendship featuring vocalist Clairdee|
Tuesday, April 14, 8pm
Captivating vocalist Clairdee pays homage to two great innovators in the performance of American popular song: Carmen McRae and her friend and mentor, Billie Holiday. The enduring legacy of these quintessential jazz singers, their friendship from the time singer-pianist McRae was just 17, and their individual musical gifts for storytelling provides a unique celebration of the centennial of Holiday's birth. Clairdee's notable affinity for a song's emotional narrative, and her distinctive, warm voice are framed by beautiful arrangements and propelled by the swinging Knoxville Jazz Orchestra.
