Dizzy's Club

Queen Esther Sings Billie Holiday: The Lost Classics

With vocalist Queen Esther, guitarist Jeff McLaughlin, pianist Sharp Radway, bassist Hilliard Greene, and drummer Darrell Green.

“…ultra-hip, not because of who she reminds the listener of, but precisely because, whatever influences she brings to the table, she manages to make you think of no one but herself.” – Jazzitude

After making her Jazz at Lincoln Center debut during the 2016 Hot Jazz Festival, vocalist Queen Esther returns for her first time as a headliner at Dizzy’s Club. Known for her wild versatility and originality, Queen Esther approaches each of her projects with a fresh new perspective. She’s received serious acclaim for her unique reinterpretations of Billie Holiday, and tonight she will present Billie Holiday: The Lost Classics. With numbers carefully selected from Queen Esther’s original musical, The Billie Holiday Project, the program spans Billie Holiday’s entire career, providing insight into Lady Day’s body of work as well as her personal life. It’s a perfect format for fans who can’t get enough Lady Day and want to enjoy her music in a live experience that doesn’t settle for the obvious.
