Celebrating Billie Holiday’s Centennial With Cassandra Wilson

Written by from WBGO and Jazz At Lincoln Center

Among the celebrations of Billie Holiday’s centennial birthday anniversary is a new album from Cassandra Wilson. In Coming Forth By Day, one of today’s top jazz vocalists salutes one of her idols, drastically rearranging the Holiday songbook.

Jazz Night In America features Cassandra Wilson’s blues, country and folk-tinged delivery as she performs her Billie Holiday tribute, and catches up with some key collaborators of both Wilson and Holiday herself.
