BWW Reviews: Will Friedwald's Latest 'Clip Joint' Celebrates BILLIE HOLIDAY With a Unique Take On the Icon's CentennialBWW Reviews: Will Friedwald's Latest 'Clip Joint' Celebrates BILLIE HOLIDAY With a Unique Take On the Icon's Centennial

During a year that is already producing a glut of celebratory events (given that it's also the Frank Sinatra Centennial year), leave it to the intriguing and obsessive writer/journalist/producer to come up with something different. Instead of a roster of vocalists live or on film, performing material we now think of reflexively as belonging to Lady Day, we were offered the singular piano interpretations of Lara Downes, recollections by alto saxophonist Jerry Dodgion (who at age 22 played with Holiday), and eclectic clips from television and film appearances of the artist herself.
