Billie Holiday had a short but action-packed life, often sensationalized in movies that focus on the drama rather than the impact of her music. In preparation for the Billie Holiday JAZZ ROOM tribute, we spoke with vocalist Melissa Morgan and Harlem Legend Bill Saxton about the amazing “Lady Day”.
Local jazz saxophonist Zach Wheeler describes the Charlotte jazz scene right now, and where band Menastree fits in.
International jazz trumpeter Sean Jones about his view of the future of jazz.
This holiday season, the JAZZ ROOM is bringing together nine musicians to share their music in an online holiday performance. We sat down with several of them to talk about the holidays and their music.
