12 track cd with Billie Holiday singing her heart out on some classic songs.
From Liner Notes:
With Louis Armstrong she remains the most potent voice ever
to come out of the jazz tradition...
When Holiday sings "My Man," we somehow forget that this
French song was archaic and disturbingly misogynistic even
in 1920, and, worse, that the lyrics make the average
performer sound as if she's wallowing in self-pity. Holiday
never "transcends" the material, she simply makes it real--
