Billie’s Blues highlights Holiday’s spunk, making it such a memorable listen. The best recording of it is the slower, more sorrowful version she did with Eddie Heywood & His Orchestra in 1944. 8. The Very Thought of You Billie Holiday released her version this popular Ray Noble song in 1938. Even early in her career, Holiday’s youthful voice shows range and flexibility on this track
When Billie Holiday toured England in 1954, she went shopping in Nottingham ahead of her evening concert at the city’s Astoria Ballroom. A family friend called Betty Jones, wife of the esteemed jazz writer Max, was with her when they went into Marks and Spencer. How literary giant Jean Rhys became a jazz songwriter. The Miles Davis jazz album that transformed music. At the time, to avoid confusion with her father – who by then was working as a guitarist and banjo player with Fletcher Henderson’s jazz band – she sang under the name Billie Halliday. Billie Holiday is very rare, said the late club owner and saxophonist Ronnie Scott, she means every word she sings. She is responsible for some of the best jazz song recordings ever made.
Billie Holiday is one of the greatest jazz singers of the 20th century (competing at the same level as Frank Sinatra & Ella Fitzgerald). Her friend tenor saxophonist Lester Young gave her the nickname Lady Day and their recordings together are some of her best, possessing a joy and playfulness not found in the emotional intensity of her later recordings
A Recital By Billie Holiday. A Recital By Billie Holiday. This album contains recordings taken from her 1952 and 1954 sessions, and is an excellent sampler of her skills and charms. While the disc may appear to be just another throw-together of Holiday hits, with nothing in particular to distinguish it from the others, the arrangements, the performances and the recordings themselves are all wonderful. Backed by tight, laid-back session musicians (Oscar Peterson plays piano on many of the tracks – check out his solo on Lover, Come Back to Me )
