Gardenias For Lady Day
by James Carter
Released: Jan 2003
This tribute to Billie Holiday employs richly dramatic orchestrations right out of an old Warner Brothers crime movie and Carter plays in a full-bodied, romantic swing style on tunes such as "Gloria, before bringing out the searing violence and raging tragedy of "Strange Fruit." A celebration of Lady Day, an evocation of an era and something new and daring.
