Studio 58 The Sound of Jazz: Billie Holiday
Reunited after many years with
tenor saxophonist Lester Young, Billie's visual reaction to his moving solo
remains as eloquent as anything she ever sang; a touching finale to their
historic musical partnership.
Introduced by Robert Herridge (producer/host of CBS' "The Sound of Jazz"), this is perhaps the single most famous "live jazz" performance in TV history. Other members of the all-star band seen here: Coleman Hawkins, Ben Webster, Gerry Mulligan, Roy Eldridge, Doc Cheatham, Vic Dickenson, Danny Barker, Milt Hinton, Mal Waldron...
"We shall not see their likes again."
