Pamela Hart performs Billie Holiday songs in an all-star show featuring Ryan D. Howard on piano, John Fremgen on bass, Terrance McDaniel on drums, and Michael Malone on saxophone. Pamela has a passion for Billie Holiday's vocal style.
Billie Holiday (born Eleanora Fagan; April 7, 1915 – July 17, 1959) was an American jazz and swing music singer. Nicknamed "Lady Day" by her friend and music partner, Lester Young, Holiday had an innovative influence on jazz music and pop singing. Her vocal style, strongly inspired by jazz instrumentalists, pioneered a new way of manipulating phrasing and tempo. She was known for her vocal delivery and improvisational skills.
Vocalist Pamela Hart came from a household filled with jazz recordings and her mother’s singing. Hailed by Austin Woman Magazine as the “Austin’s First Lady of Jazz”, Pamela continues to love singing jazz since age five. Pamela has a love for Billie Holidays interpretation and style. She is a founding partner of the Women in Jazz Association, Inc. in Austin, Texas and is a co-producer of this event.
This project is supported in part by the Cultural Arts Division of the City of Austin Economic Development Department and a grant from the Texas Commission on the Arts.
