We’re celebrating the great canaries—the female vocalists who started with popular big bands such as Glenn Miller, Artie Shaw, and Benny Goodman—who went on to spectacular solo careers after spreading their wings and creating their own sounds and style. Champian Fulton, Lezlie Harrison, Nicholas Payton, Willie Jones III, Neal Miner, and special guest, Jane Monheit, take the stage to swing the music of jazz canaries Billie Holiday, Anita O’Day, Lena Horne, Peggy Lee, Jo Stafford, Rosemary Clooney, Ella Fitzgerald, and others.
