David McAlmont Presents Billie Holiday At Carnegie Hall at Hideaway

About

Inspired by the legendary 1956 concert at which Billie's music was accompanied by extracts from her autobiography 'Lady Sings The Blues', David McAlmont gives his unique interpretations of the Lady Day catalogue while quoting from her extraodinary life story, with a band led by pianist / MD Alex Webb. Like the Carnegie concert, the show includes many of the most well-known Holiday songs, ranging from the optimism of her 1930s work through her 1940s Torch songs to her self-penned classics 'Don't Explain and Lady Sings The Blues' - and many more. Accompanying McAlmont and Webb are Sue Richardson (trumpet), Katy Jungmann (tenor, clarinet), Flo Moore (bass) and Sophie Alloway (drums).
