Fisher Center and Catskill Jazz Factory Present
The Aaron Diehl Trio
featuring Cécile McLorin Salvant
Billie Holiday Centenary Tribute
Known for her definitive interpretations of classic jazz standards such as Strange Fruit, Summertime, and God Bless the Child, Billie Holiday is considered to be one of the greatest jazz vocalists of all time. Join Fisher Center and the Catskill Jazz Factory as they present the Aaron Diehl Trio and Grammy-nominated vocalist Cécile McLorin Salvant in a centenary tribute to Holiday's ongoing legacy.
The New York Times has called Diehl a "smart young pianist with a fastidious grasp of jazz traditions," and has said of Salvant: "If anyone can extend the lineage of the Big Three—Billie Holiday, Sarah Vaughan, and Ella Fitzgerald—it is this . . . virtuoso."
