Peggy Lee cast a spell when she sang. She epitomized cool, but her trademark “Fever” is the essence of sizzling sexual heat.  Hear this and other Great American Songbook favorites that made her famous, along with stories about Peggy and the bizarre dreamworld she inhabited.
James Gavin, author of the acclaimed book:
Is That All There Is? — The Strange Life of Peggy Lee, pairs with the superb Wesla Whitfield, to present a vibrant musical biography exploring the radiant, mysterious star who  inspired Ella Fitzgerald,  Diana Krall,  Jane Monheit and countless other jazz singers.
This Tribute includes vintage videos, author presentations, along with the great music. 
The last song in this show can be overwhelming…
you won’t forget it!
