The singer pays an imaginative tribute to one of her idols. Billie Holiday was unlike any other vocal artist in American popular music. She blazed a heroic path through abusive relationships, prison, and heroin addiction to become the pre-eminent jazz singer of her day. Classic songs with soulful vocals, and always with a characteristic catch. Alison focuses on the life-affirming, feel-good, upbeat times of Holiday’s life, and sings Holiday’s great tunes with élan.
