This video focuses on one of the two broadcasts that still exist of Lady Day on Art Ford's critically acclaimed show, Jazz Party. Jazz Party, which debuted in May of 1958, was basically a ninety minute live television show showing the day's top musicians basically in a jam session. Many people were regulars such as Coleman Hawkins, Ben Webster, and Billie herself.

Billie was featured on the show four times, but there are only two broadcasts that survive, both from July of 1958. This particular broadcast is recorded exactly one year before Lady's death on July 17, 1958..

The songs she sings are in order: "Moanin' Low", "Don't Explain", and "When Your Lover Has Gone".

Stay tuned for part two!
