Billie Holiday, Nina Simone and Etta James — these are the voices that defined jazz and blues, the reigning queens of music. Impassioned vocalist Emilie Surtees will pay homage to all of them in First Ladies of Jazz & Blues. From scat to breathy ballads, “First Lady of Song” Billie Holiday could do it all, while Etta James is considered one of the greatest blues singers who ever lived. And Nina Simone lit the world on fire with a vibrato that stirred souls and moved mountains. Hear the Holy Trinity’s greatest hits as Surtees interprets them with conviction at Club Bonafide in New York.
