Billie Holiday Listening Party

Billie Holiday Listening Party

WBGO’s Rhonda Hamilton hosts a free listening party sharing and exploring Billie Holiday’s most essential recordings.

Join us as Rhonda Hamilton from WBGO—the jazz mecca The New York Times called “arguably the best jazz station in the world”— leads listeners through seminal Holiday tracks, from her early 1930s Brunswick recordings through the album many consider her masterpiece, 1959’s Lady in Satin. Reflections on Billie’s key collaborators—Lester Young, Teddy Wilson, Benny Goodman, Count Basie and others—accompany insights into one of the most extraordinary discographies in music. Free with registration.
