Queen Esther sings Billie Holiday’s rare sides at Minton’s with her trio, in an elegant intimate setting for lovers and listeners alike. Culled from her much lauded residency last spring that celebrated Lady Day’s centennial, the lost classics span Miss Holiday’s entire career. These songs will give much insight into the life of what many consider to be the greatest jazz singer of the 20th century.
To celebrate Valentine’s Day in style, Harlem’s iconic jazz hotspot Minton’s will host a series of dinner events which includes a four course prix fixe meal curated by Executive Chef Joseph “JJ” Johnson. There are two seatings to choose from each night.
