Billie Holiday & Ray Ellis a perfect pairing...,
This review is from: Lady In Satin (Audio CD)
This 2CD set brings together the last 2 albums that Billie Holiday made and both with arranger & conductor Ray Ellis. CD1: Lady in Satin-Total running time approx 45 with Ray Ellis as arranger & conductor plus large orchestra. Recorded in 1958 for Columbia Records. CD2:Last Recordings-Total running time approx 37 minutes again with Ray Ellis as arranger & conductor but with a smaller orchestra. Recorded in 1959 for MGM Records. Excellent sound and a superb addition to the recordings of Billie Holiday available on Not Now CDs. Nicely packaged too and for the collector seek out their 5 CD set Billie Holiday, Lady Sings The Blues, 5CD, Cat No: NOT5CD903. All great value.
