Holiday, Billie - Songs For Distingue LoversVendor: Verve
RARE/2HAND VINYL LP ON VERVE 1957.
Verve V6-8257 made in USA.
Vinyl NM. Cover EX.
Comprised of the last five studio dates Holiday did for Verve, SONGS FOR DISTINGUE LOVERS finds Lady Day operating within her ideal environment; that of a small jazz combo. Accompanied by a legendary line-up including Sweets Edison, Ben Webster and Barney Kessel, Holiday sang with the clear enunciation and easy swing that had become her trademark. Wrapping her phrasing around standards by Rodgers & Hart, The Gershwins and Cole Porter, Billie Holiday demonstrated how years of singing with various jazz bands sharpened her ability to turn a song on its head through slight fluctuations in pitch and tone color. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Billie_Holiday
