Product Description

The world's greatest Jazz singer like you have never heard before - lovingly remastered, giving new life to the original masterpieces.

Billie Holiday is celebrated for the highly personal, intimate and emotional style that she brought to every note she recorded. Lovingly compiled and remastered, this special edition spanning her career includes a groundbreaking tribute to the original divas that helped establish the role of the jazz singer. Compiled by the author of the 'Rough Guide to the Blues' book and well known music journalist Nigel Williamson.

Comes complete with the Bonus CD 'Original Jazz Divas'. More than half a century after her death, you can still hear the undeniable influence of Billie Holiday today in the smoky voices of pop divas such as Amy Winehouse and Alicia Keys. On this disc we hear her contemporaries, all of whom were touched by her uniquely emotional voice. They range from household names like Ella Fitzgerald and Dinah Washington to less celebrated singers such as Helen Humes, who succeeded Billie as the singer with Count Basie, and the irresistibly seductive Blue Lu Barker. As a bonus, we include a wonderful live performance by Louis Armstrong that includes a guest appearance by Lady Day herself...
