Songs For Distingue Lovers

Songs For Distingue Lovers by Billie Holiday
Released: Jan 1957
Lady Day is joined by Ben Webster, Jimmy Rowles, Barney Kessel and Harry "Sweets" Edison on a peerless small group session that pulls from the Sinatra songbook (the title is a play on her No. 1 fan's own Songs for Swingin' Lovers). "Moonlight In Vermont," "The Can't Take That Away From Me" and the rest of the Class A material is handled exquisitely. Forget about jazz myths and stereotypes -- the expressive joy on these sides shows off another rich part of Holiday's art.
