The new Alisiah!,
By A Customer
This review is from: Lady in Autumn (Audio CD)
What to say about Billie Holiday. She lived 2 generations before me and I face already some brilliant new singers from a new generation. Why is Billie Holiday unique? There are female singers with a better voice, who have a better band and a better producer. Billie cannot use the techniques of today. The fact is she does not need all of that. Here voice is just like Chet Bakers voice coming from another dimension. It hurts and in the same time all your sorrows fade away. She sings against the melody of her band. The trouble with many recordings is the bad quality, which is really a pity. You like to improve that sound every time. Lady in Autumn has a perfect sound, a perfect melody and a Billie Holiday in a very best shape. This is the record from Billie Holiday you have to buy and you will enjoy it for the rest of your life.
