New blood is coursing in the veins of Philadelphia’s long-standing jazz scene, and a prime opportunity to experience the rising talents comes tonight at Chris’ Jazz Cafe in a tribute to Billie Holiday curated by vocalists Chelsea Reed (of Chelsea Reed and the Fairweather Five) and Alexa Barchini. The group will perform both classics and rarities from Billie Holiday, with most arrangements taken directly from transcripts of original recordings.
