Ladies Sing the Blues with John Szwed on Billie Holiday, Catherine Russell

For the definitive jazz singer Billie Holiday's centennial celebration, we listen to her voice through songs ranging from "God Bless the Child" and "Summertime" to "My Man" and "Strange Fruit." We also hear about Billie's style and significance from biographers John Szwed and Robert O'Meally as well as music historian Chris Albertson, who knew and interviewed the singer. Cassandra Wilson describes and sings her approach to the Billie Holiday oeuvre on a recent recording; and we follow "Lady Day" through her beginnings to musical high points, a complex life of troubles and triumphs, her compelling "autumn" voice and untimely passing. Singer Catherine Russell tells us about drawing on Billie Holiday and more in bringing classic jazz vocals into contemporary style. We also dig into our archive to hear about blues in their sound from Nina Simone, Bonnie Raitt, Irma Thomas and Koko Taylor
