An inspired blend of jazz and classical sounds

  • Lady in Satin: A Tribute to Billie Holiday, featuring Rosena Hill-Jackson

  • "Jazz & Strings Series," the versatile Broadway vocalist/actress Rosena Hill-Jackson dons the "Lady in Satin" mantle, singing songs from the 1958 studio string session that decked out the then dying Holiday's tragically tattered but still emotionally charged voice in high-fashion orchestrations. Besides songs from "Lady in Satin," the concert features such classic Holiday signature songs as "Body and Soul," "God Bless the Child" and the anti-lynching song, "Strange Fruit."
