A special Saturday Night Jazz Club show featuring the songs and legends of Billie Holiday will be performed by the Stella Heath Sextet on February 2, at 7:00 pm, at the Soper Reese Theatre. Tickets are now on sale for $20 with open seating.
Featuring some of the Bay AreaÕs finest jazz musicians, this show brings back the electric and intimate feeling of seeing Lady Day live in a 1930Õs Jazz Club. Drawing from some of BillieÕs most recorded tunes such as, Blue Moon, BillieÕs Blues, God Bless the Child, and Strange Fruit, to name a few, the sextet also revives some of the earlier and lesser known tunes she interpreted.
The concert will feature lead singer, Stella Heath, invoking the vocal stylings of Billie Holiday; Neil Fontano, piano virtuoso from Sonoma County; Jason Bellenkes, rich and inventive on tenor saxophone and clarinet; Trevor Kinsel, interchanging between upright bass and cornet; and percussion legend Pete Lind on the drum kit.
