    A Tribute to Billy Holiday & Lester Young

    8pm-11pm

     

    TRIBUTE TO LESTER YOUNG

    Scotty & Melissa 1A father daughter tribute to the great musical dialogue of Billie Holiday and Lester Young, featuring:
    Melissa Shetler – Vocals
    Scott Shetler – Tenor Sax and Clarinet
    Rudolph Vernas-Colas
    Bass Sven Larson
    Drums Benny Benson

    Family is family. Sometimes it’s the family you’re born into and sometimes it’s the family you choose, but it’s always family, and as such the bonds run deep. Bonded by blood, or common language, inside jokes, physical traits, and for many - shared musical experiences. Billie Holiday and Lester Young became family. They recognized a common expression in each other, and you can hear that in the music when they performed together.
         
    As a horn player, Lester brought be-bop into much of his soloing, but when it came to backing Billie it was the breathy lyricism and laid back rhythmic phrasing that always came across to me. It’s as if Lester is singing the song back to her. And in return she allows herself to take on the freedom of a horn, often avoiding stating the original melody altogether in exchange for her own emotional interpretation.
       
    So here we are years later, my father and I, revisiting those voices and their dialogue, and listening for the nuance in their communication while exploring our own. I thinks as artists we both have moved past those early days of mimicry and are always working on developing a genuine and unique tone and expression, and just as the speech patterns and expressions of our parents and early surroundings never leave us, neither do those early musical influences.
