    A tribute to the legendary blues and jazz singer Billie Holiday by the great piano player Mark Birnbaum.
My name is Mark Birnbaum and this is a tribute to the legendary jazz singer Billie Holdiay. For those that know me, they know how much I love Jazz and playing the piano. I want to pay tribute to one of the finest jazz singers of our time; Billie Holiday. Who can ever forget the movie where Diana Ross portrayed Billie in "Lady sings the blues" 
I am known for my Jelly roll style and jazz piano playing. However, I love jazz in all forms and the roots of it. This is for those purist who love the classics. 
I only wish I would of have had the honor of playing the piano for her at least once.
One thing is for sure and that is that Mark Birnbaum would loved to have had the chance to play the piano for Billie Holiday. What a show that would of been. One thing we know for sure is that Mark would of played that piano with all of his heart that day. His love and admiration for the legend is something he tells everyone about.
