No one sings like Billie Holiday and this selection of standards, recorded in January 1957, is the perfect illustration of that. The classic ‘Body And Soul’, ‘Darn That Dream and the Gershwin’s ‘Let’s Call the Whole Thing Off’ get that treatment. Her bluesy inflection oozes out on ‘Gee Baby Ain’t I Good To You’. There is a poignant fragility to her vocal on the lovely ‘Moonlight In Vermont’. Tenor legend and guitar maestro Barney Kessel add stupendous solo support.
