From Billie Holiday to Edith Piaf: Live in Marciac, is in stores now. The 9-song album, recorded in the summer of 2008 when Wynton Marsalis and his quintet teamed-up with French accordionist Richard Galliano at the annual Jazz in Marciac festival in Southern France to pay tribute to the late legends Billie Holiday and Edith Piaf, is available in two formats, a deluxe CD/DVD edition and a standard audio CD.
Both versions are currently available both digitally and physically with the digital audio only version of the album featured at the discounted price of $2.99 today only as Amazon’s Deal of the Day.
From Billie Holiday to Edith Piaf: Live in Marciac translates classic vocal compositions into artful instrumental versions that are striking in their rhythmic variety. From the dizzying waltz tempo of “La Foule” to the infectious swing of “Them There Eyes” to the haunting performance of “Strange Fruit,” the magic of this concert has been faithfully captured in sound as well as in video through a special bonus DVD, making it a must-have item for serious jazz collectors and casual listeners alike.
