The essentially improvised nature of jazz music has led the performer to have a creative role analogous to that of the composer and, therefore, he/she has assumed an equally important place. This explains why Ella Fitzgerald (1917-1996) and Billie Holiday (1915-1959) have gone down in the history of jazz not only for the extraordinary quality of their voices, but the performance of some of the most memorable versions of all time. More than a historical revival, this series is conceived as a tribute to both singers through some of the works they popularised and the composers they were closest to.
