The time is 1959. The place is Emerson’s Bar and Grill, a seedy little jazz club in Philadelphia. The audience is about to witness one of Billie Holiday's final performances, given four months before her death. More than a dozen musical numbers including ''God Bless the Child'', ''My Man'' and ''Strange Fruit'' are interlaced with salty, often humorous, reminiscences to project a riveting portrait of the lady and her music.

''Hurts and exhilarates in just the right proportions.'' - New York Magazine
