The Blues are Brewin'

From film "New Orleans," 1947
Although Billie Holiday would ultimately prove disappointed in the role created for her in the film “New Orleans” – her only major role – she did manage to put together the track “The Blues Are Brewin'” for its soundtrack.
The production had been plagued by political pressures on Hollywood – both by McCarthyite fanatics and racists. Ultimately the screenwriter was sent to jail, accused of being a Communist along with the other Hollywood 10.
