Cassandra Wilson: Coming Forth by Day: A Celebration of Billie Holiday

When: Sat., April 4, 8 p.m. 2015

It takes a world-class jazz singer to do proper tribute to Billie Holiday, but Cassandra Wilson, a two-time Grammy winner, is up to the task. Celebrated for her majestic voice, which one writer described as “sand mixed with honey,” Wilson summons the distinctive phrasing and intonation of Lady Day to commemorate the centenary of the tragic singer’s birth. Wilson will showcase versions of songs made famous by Holiday, which she’ll be recording for an album produced by Nick Launay (Arcade Fire, Nick Cave) and featuring collaborations with Van Dyke Parks, T Bone Burnett and various Bad Seeds. —David Klein
