Download Solitude - Billie Holiday - The Essential Recordings

Billie Holiday 's first recordings for Norman Granz' Clef Records present a vocalist truly at the top of her craft, although she would begin a rapid decline soon thereafter. This recording originally issued as a 10" LP, Billie Holiday Sings places Holiday in front of small piano and tenor saxophone-led groups including jazz luminaries such as Oscar Peterson and Charlie Shaverswhere her gentle phrasing sets the tone for the sessions, evoking lazy evenings and dreamy afternoons.

The alcoholism and heroin use that would be her downfall by the end of this decade seems to be almost unfathomable during these recordings since Holiday is in as fine a voice as her work in the '30s, and the musical environment seems ideal for these slow torch songs.

Solitude runs as the common theme throughout these 16 tracks; the idle breathiness of "These Foolish Things Remind Me of You " Sidewinder - Dark Illumination - Dead Planet the vocalist casually reminiscing, and Barney Kessel 's warm guitar lines frame the title track beautifully. Several of Holiday 's best-known recordings came from this session, including outstanding Jaded Lover - Jerry Jeff* - Ridin High of "I Only Have Eyes for You" and a darkly emotional Solitude - Billie Holiday - The Essential Recordings for Sale," making this album far and away the best work of her later years, and Shall We Take A Trip - Various - Weekender a noteworthy moment of her entire career.

  2. Nov 26,  · Billie Holiday is perhaps my favorite female jazz vocalist. Her voice is so eloquent, blusey, and soulful that she seemingly transforms any jazz standard that she sings into pure poetry ("The Very Thought of You" immediately comes to mind in this regard). This album, highlighting the best of her Columbia years, really captures this feeling/5(14).
