The multi-talented Nellie McKay joins forces with Grammy Award-winning Turtle Island Quartet to present a delightfully kaleidoscopic view of the music of Billie Holiday, Billy Strayhorn, and the Weimar cabaret of the 1920s. McKay’s voice, which evokes the sound of Doris Day, and her broad musical talents on piano, mallets and ukulele, combine with Turtle Island’s innovative rhythms to transcend both classical and contemporary styles. Together they unleash an unprecedented range of possibilities in this enchanting night of musical revelry. “…a sterling example of first-rate jazz music-making…” / LOS ANGELES TIMES
