Description

Together with Ella Fitzgerald and Sara Vaughan, Billie Holiday is one of the fundamental symbols of vocal jazz. An iconic image of Afro-American culture; an unforgettable face; a deep, subtle, sensual voice, she became a celebrity from the 1930s, when she was discovered by Benny Goodman. Holiday shared the stage with great jazzmen of the time, like Lester Young, Count Basie and Artie Shaw. A controversial character, she made her fortune with a piece – “Strange Fruit” – considered the best song of the 20th century, according to Time magazine. The woman in charge of paying tribute to her memory is a singer with a voice full of feeling, Leslie Helpert, who claims to have composed around 1,000 pieces. In the catalogue of the renowned Whatabout Music label, Helpert has played in clubs as far afield as Yoshi’s in California, CBGB in New York and the Can Déu community centre, and today she is a muse at the more underground settings in Barcelona. Ideal, then, for paying tribute to Lady Day.
