Description

At this time, it’s important to allow yourself to enjoy the beauty of music.

Each week we'll share jazz videos, stories and performances and hear some of jazz's great artists.

Jazz picks curated by Bennie Wallace, internationally acclaimed tenor saxophonist, composer and artistic director of BackCountry Jazz.

This week: Billie Holiday's rendition of “We’ll Be Together Again."

Says Bennie: "This is from a series of recordings Billie Holiday made in the mid-fifties with Jimmy Rowles, Harry “Sweets” Edison, and Ben Webster. Ben plays a beautiful 16-bar solo between Billie’s vocals.

In its own special way this recording speaks to our time."
