This selection is drawn from Billie Holiday's Verve recordings of the mid-1950s. It was a time when her voice was already showing some wear and tear, but the same experiences that tattered the voice brought it an unmatched expressiveness. 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. There's 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. –Stuart Broomer

For the past eight years, I have been engaged in the study of African culture,
primarily African dance, African American music, and African aesthetics. Music can be a cultural form of expression that unifies, even arouses, large numbers of people. This is certainly true for African music as it is manifested in African American songs and sounds. In this study, I explore selected song performances of Bessie Smith (1894–1937), Billie Holiday (1915–1959), and Nina Simone (1933–2003) through the prism of African aesthetics.

The first popular jazz singer to move audiences with the intense, personal feeling of classic blues, Billie Holiday changed the art of American pop vocals forever. More than a half-century after her death, it's difficult to believe that prior to her emergence, jazz and pop singers were tied to the Tin Pan Alley tradition and rarely personalized their songs; only blues singers like Bessie Smith and Ma Rainey actually gave the impression they had lived through what they were singing.

Billie Holiday cantó centenares de canciones. 314 quedaron grabadas en disco. Algunas las llevó consigo hasta el día de su muerte, otras sólo las cantó esporádicamente pero en todas dejó su huella imperecedera. Cada una de esas canciones tiene su historia. A veces puede explicarse con pocas palabras. Otras ha seguido un trayecto largo y enrevesado. Incluso puede llegar a ser desconocido o simplemente inventado.
