    Billie Holiday "Lady in Satin" with Ray Ellis & His Orchestra. One of the great vocal performances captured on record. While this is far from Lady Day at her finest it is a record of vocal art at its peak, an interpretation of pop standards of the day through a life lens. A mythic recording that more than lives up to the lore that surrounds it.

    Sarah Vaughan plays the piano as Duke Ellington and Billy Eckstine look on, circa 1950. The Newark, NJ-born Ms. Vaughan studied piano as a child and went on to win first prize at the Apollo Theater’s famous Amateur Night competition. Billy Eckstine was in the audience that night and before long, Ms. Vaughan would sing with Mr. Eckstine in his band. Her recording of “The Duke Ellington Songbook, Vol. 1 and 2,” is still unmatched for its beauty and brilliance. Photo by Gilles Pet
