COVER NOTES

Billie Holiday’s portrait is emblazoned on T-shirts, her performance photographs are widely reproduced on posters, no jazz calendar is complete without her picture, and her recordings are far more extensively distributed now than in her lifetime. New books and video documentaries about her appear regularly and there was even a 1972 feature film based on her life story – the critically mauled ‘Lady Sings The Blues’, starring Diana Ross.

The woman who continues to exert this wide-ranging influence has been dead for more than thirty-five years. New styles in jazz have come and gone yet the impact of Billie Holiday’s vocal creativity continues to endure. Each generation of singers re-discovers her, and it is doubtful whether any vocalist currently active would sing as they do if it were not for her innovations. Her unique timing and dynamic sense, highly individual approach to phrasing and astute ear for harmonic variety have influenced performers as diverse as Peggy Lee, Ella Fitzgerald, Cleo Laine, Anita O’Day, Frank Sinatra, and yes, Diana Ross.

  1. Mrs C

    The quality is unsurpassed, and I agree that you have to hear it to understand that what other people say is perfectly true. That’s why I’ve been ordering from you nearly every week since I got the catalogue!

  2. Hazel B

    Great quality of sound, interesting choice of tracks. Helped develop my knowledge of fine jazz.
