In the mid 1930s, as the Great Depression refuses to lift, Benny Goodman finds himself hailed as the "King of Swing" and becomes the first white bandleader to hire black musicians. He has a host or rivals among them, Chick Webb, Tommy Dorsey, Jimmie Lunceford, Glen Miller and Artie Shaw. Louis Armstrong heads a big band of his own, while Duke Ellington continues his independent course, but great black artists still can't eat or sleep in many of the hotels where they perform. Billie Holiday emerges from a childhood of tragedy to begin her career as the greatest of all female jazz singers

Lady day the many faces of Billie Holiday by Matthew Seig( Visual )

"The Many Faces of Billie Holiday invites viewers to see the many faces of this 'dark lady of the sonnets', as one poet called her, and to appreciate her undying art more deeply. Most presentations feature Lady Day as the sad victim of hard times and drugs. The simple fact of her life that matters above all others is that she was a great artist who, with Louis Armstrong, invented modern jazz singing. Mining a treasure trove of completely new information, the producers set the record straight -- and beautifully. In a voice that is Billie-like in its rasping wiseness and its ring, stage and screen star Ruby Dee read from Holiday's autobiography Lady Sings the Blues." -- Back of container
