With rare sides lifted from The Billie Holiday Project – a musical written and developed by Queen Esther that augments newly unearthed short stories from Zora Neale Hurston with an explosive score culled from the iconic jazz siren’s work — Queen Esther and her coterie of musicians breathe life into the more relatively unknown yet timeless songs of Miss Holiday. By allowing these songs to stand on their own in performance and speak to us and through us, the audience as well as the performers will explore a relatively unknown side of Lady Day.

Songs include If The Moon Turns Green, You Can’t Be Mine (and Someone Else’s Too) and Things Are Looking Up.

The line-up:

Sharp Radway – piano
Hilliard Greene – double bass
Jeff McLaughlin — guitar
Darren Green – drums
