1 - HOLIDAY, BILLIE - AT JAZZ AT THE PHILHARMONIC - (LP) 
WAX LOVE


Jazz at The Philharmonic was a concert series produced by the legendary Norman Granz all the way from 1944 to 1983. Billie Holiday performed several times in the 1940s and 50s and was even a member of the touring troupe late in her career. These sides were recorded in 1945 and 1946 with backing from legends like Illinois Jacquet, Lester Young, and Barney Kessel. Recorded at the height of her technical prowess and before her hard living affected her voice, these performances from Los Angeles and New York City are some of the finest live recordings of her career. Absolute essentials from a jazz legend.

2 - HOLIDAY, BILLIE - BILLIE'S BEST - (LP) 
DOXY


This selection is drawn from Billie Holidays recordings of the mid-1950s. Her voice possessed a unique presence, a sound that seems lit up by a resilient vitality. Producer Norman Granz set Holiday among the small jazz combos that suited her talents best, groups that included some of the finest soloists of her generation, such as trumpeter Harry "Sweets" Edison and saxophonists Benny Carter and Ben Webster. Granz also supplied ideal rhythm sections, with pianist Jimmy Rowles and guitarists Kenny Burrell and Barney Kessel making appearances here. Theres more room to stretch out than was available on the early Columbia and Commodore recordings, and the results are relaxed and profound treatments of some great songs.

TRACKLISTING: 01. What A Little Moonlight Can Do 02. A Foggy Day 03. Come Rain Or Come Shine 04. Comes Love 05. Hes Funny That Way 06. Stars Fell On Alabama 07. Gone With The Wind 08. They Cant Take That Away From Me DISC #2: 01. East Of The Sun (and West Of The Moon) 02. Everything I Have Is Yours 03. Stormy Blues 04. Speak Low 05. April In Paris 06. Ive Got My Love To Keep Me Warm 07. Some Other Spring 08. All The Way

3 - HOLIDAY, BILLIE - BILLIE'S BLUES - (LP) 
WAX LOVE


Though she had been performing professionally since the late 1920s, as a teenager in Harlem, during its Renaissance, the immortal Billie Holiday didn't play a single night on the European continent until 1954. It was in that year that the great journalist and musician Leonard Feather, and a Swedish promoter organized the Jazz Club U.S.A. tour, named after Feather's wildly popular radio program. Featuring Red Norvo, Sonny Clark, and more, the centerpiece of Jazz Club U.S.A. was, undoubtedly, Lady Day. Recorded at various dates across the tour, Billie's Blues shows Holiday still had it, despite the turmoil, and drug and alcohol abuse, her voice remained strong, a stunning document of one of America's greatest treasures on her first ever tour of Europe. Reissued with 5 bonus tracks.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Announcement By Leonard Feather 02. Blue Moon 03. All Of Me 04. My Man 05. Them Their Eyes 06. I Cried For You 07. What A Little Moonlight Can Do 08. I Cover The Waterfront 09. Detour Ahead* 10. Trav'lin' Light* 11. Billie's Blues 12. Lover Come Back To Me 13. Blue Turning Grey Over You* 14. Be Fair With Me Baby* 15. Rocky Mountain Blues*

5 - HOLIDAY, BILLIE - LADY SINGS THE BLUES - (LP) 
WAX LOVE


Though her late career was marred by addiction and personal issues, and her chipper voice had grown raspy and hardened by the years and the pain, Lady Sings The Blues has come to be regarded as one of the finest albums of her career, despite a lack of critical enthusiasm at the time. Originally released in 1956, concurrently with her autobiography, Holiday was joined for these sessions by tenor saxophonist Paul Quinichette, trumpeters Charlie Shavers and Harry Edison, pianist Wynton Kelly, and guitarists Kenny Burrell and Barney Kessel. A beautiful, smoky, and slow-burning piece of jazz vocal history. Essential.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Lady Sings The Blues 02. Trav'lin' Light 03. I Must Have That Man 04. Some Other Spring 05. Strange Fruit 06. No Good Man 07. God Bless The Child 08. Good Morning Heartache 09. Love Me Or Leave Me 10. Too Marvelous For Words 11. Willow Weep For Me 12. I Thought About You

6 - HOLIDAY, BILLIE - MUSIC FOR TORCHING WITH BILLIE HOLIDAY - (LP) 
WAX LOVE


1958's Music For Torching With Billie Holiday is the quintessential torch singer album. Sultry, smoky, and nearly perfect, this is the great Billie Holiday at her absolute peak. Featuring the subtle and perfectly complimentary work of guitarist Barney Kessel, pianist Jimmy Rowles, and trumpeter Harry Edison, with an amazing cover from the legendary David Stone Martin, this is one of the greatest jazz vocal albums of all-time, beautifully repressed by Wax Love.

TRACKLISTING: 01. It Had To Be You 02. Come Rain Or Come Shine 03. I Don't Want To Cry Anymore 04. I Don't Stand A Ghost Of A Chance With You 05. A Fine Romance 06. Gone With The Wind 07. I Get A Kick Out Of You 08. Isn't This A Lovely Day?
