JazzArts Charlotte’s Jazz Room, a relaxed and intimate setting reminiscent of classic jazz venues of yesteryear, returns with singer Melissa Morgan singing the music of Billie Holiday. Known for her sweet and sultry sound, Morgan is a regular at New York’s best jazz venues such as Cleopatra’s Needle, Flute, G Bar, Smalls, Smoke and St. Nick’s Pub. In 2001 Morgan appeared in performances with Jon Faddis and the Dizzy Gillespie Alumni All-Stars at Blue Note in New York and performed at the New York Women of Jazz Festival in 2002. She released her latest album Day like this in 2016.
Morgan will reinvent the songs of one of her biggest influences, Billie Holiday, the pioneering jazz and swing singer nicknamed “Lady Day” and inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame, National Rhythm & Blues Hall of Fame and Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.
