Billie Holiday.

This is a fantastic L/P maybe perhaps for the Jazz lovers...but maybe after reading this some of you out there with good music taste will perhaps give it a listen...Billie sings with a jazz group of Trumpet, Tenor Sax, Piano, Guitar And Drums and all the tracks except one is done in a Jam Session Style.. that is Billie Sings then you have the solo's of trumpet, sax, ect ending with Billie singing again...The Track "One For My Baby" is a corker she sings all the time all 5 and a half minuets of it and it even beats the "Sinatra's" version and boy does that take some doing !! Billie voice is definitely an acquired taste when I first heard her I didn't take much notice but as the years went by and I got older and wiser then the appreciation kicked in...This was recorded in 1956 unfortunately 3 years later Billie died.....
