3.0 goodRobbit | May 1st 16

Legendary Jazz-Blues singer Billie Holiday sounds almost ancient at age 43 on these sessions
recorded just a year before her untimely death. Billie is joined by a full orchestra, which
often makes her sound like she's starring in some Broadway production. In terms of sound
quality, the recording is big & crystal clear given its 1958 recording date. Fans & critics
of Billie?s work seem fiercely divided over this somewhat controversial album that many feel
is not the most flattering representation of her abilities. By the time she recording this
album, her voice had been reduced to a quavering and reedy instrument. Although she still
does her best to imbue these songs with the dripping emotion you would expect, what makes you
saddest about this record is knowing she had reached the end of her road. For the
aforementioned reasons and my general distaste for these gaudy string arrangements, I would
suggest you look elsewhere for a better representation of Billie Holiday as an artist &
vocalist.Favorite Tracks: ?You Don?t Know What Love Is?.
