Billie Holiday : All or Nothing at All

$50.00

As this set demonstrates in the subtle blending and dissolving of moods within one number as well as in the emotional changes throughout the program as a whole, perhaps the primary reason Billie was always able to reach so deeply into her listeners is that more than any other jazz singer, she could communicate the complexities of feeling in which we’re all involved.

Description

After the publication of her autobiography, “Lady Sings The Blues”, Billie Holiday was doing good business in clubs in what turned out to be a last burst of stardom. We cannot know why she stopped recording for Norman Granz after January 1957 – but the present collection is a magnificent culmination of her years with the producer.

Recording: in mono

ALL OR NOTHING AT ALL
WE’LL BE TOGETHER AGAIN
SOPHISTICATED LADY
APRIL IN PARIS
SAY IT ISN’T SO
LOVE IS HERE TO STAY
