Billie Holiday's 'Lady Sings The Blues', limited edition 180g yellow vinyl edition "Lady Sings The Blues comes through as a characteristic, satisfyingly troubling, indelible Billie monologue. No other singer in jazz gets so fully into the bloodstream as Billie does," - Nat Hentoff, DownBeat Magazine.
‘Lady Sings The Blues’ pairs Billie Holiday’s unmistakeable vocals with an exceptional band comprised of trumpeters Charlie Shavers and Harry Edison, tenor saxophonist Paul Quinichette, pianist Wynton Kelly, guitarists Kenny Burrell and Barney Kessel, and Tony Scott on clarinet. An album to be treasured, this time on yellow wax. FFO: Helen Humes, Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, Betty Carter.
