NEW YORK
IRISH ARTS CENTER – ‘Tobin’s Run on 51’
‘Fine and Mellow: Billie and Ella, Side by Side’
Both discovered in the early 1930’s, Holiday, nicknamed Lady Day,
and Fitzgerald, The Lady of Swing had distinct vocal styles but
their personal lives unfolded in very different ways. Holiday
was as famous for her music as she was for her tragic life, dying
prematurely at the age of 44. Fitzgerald famously beat a
disadvantaged childhood and troubled teenage years to become a
13-time Grammy Award-winner. Yet, “they complete each other
somehow, like the two faces of Janus” (The New York Times).
Christine Tobin, a devotee of Billie Holiday, and charismatic jazz
vocalist Roseanna Vitro, a longtime fan of Ella Fitzgerald, will pay
tribute to these mothers of jazz by singing a special selection from
their repertoire. Vitro will be accompanied by pianist and musical
partner Mark Soskin along with other fine guest musicians, including
Peter Brendler on double bass and David Mason on drums. The
concert will include rare film footage. 553 West 51st Street NYC
