Billie Holiday, 1957, photo by Don Hunstein “Probably no voice in the history of jazz exerts a deeper fascination than the vulnerable, intimate slur of Billie Holiday, who died in 1959 at the age of 44. With a vocal range of barely an octave and the timbre of a muted horn, Miss Holiday’s singing was far from athletic, but it spanned the emotional range of the universe, communicating joy and pain with an immediacy that seemed at once artless and profoundly sophisticated.” — Stephen Holden
Billie Holiday is iconic. Her idiosyncratic voice echoes an era. Holiday's recordings are evocative of a period best depicted in a novel like "The Day of The Locust." I feel I should be ironing my shirt while sweat drips down my forearms as a cigarette dangles from my lips an overhead fan whirls a hot breeze that makes the air dank with the odor of baked dust. I listen to her and I smell the sorrow and the sadness and I wipe the sweat from my untoiled brow. I listen and I hear history.
Billie Holiday ( April 7, 1915 – July 17, 1959) was an American jazz singer and songwriter. Holiday had a seminal influence on jazz and pop singing. Her vocal style, strongly inspired by jazz instrumentalists, pioneered a new way of manipulating phrasing and tempo. Critic John Bush wrote that Holiday "changed the art of American pop vocals forever." She co-wrote only a few songs, but several of them have become jazz standards, notably "God Bless the Child", "Don't Explain", "Fine and Mellow"---

Billie Holiday was known for her bold presence, her tall physical stature. She emphasized this by wearing clothes that transfixed audiences in understated, purposeful ways. She loved a beautiful gown and accessorizing it perfectly.
Billie Holiday. "If you find a tune that’s got something to do with you, you just feel it, and when you sing it, other people feel it, too,” Holiday once explained. According to the Penguin Encyclopedia of Popular Music,”She was the first and is perhaps still the greatest of jazz singers, if the essence of jazz singing is to make the familiar sound fresh, and to make any lyric come alive with personal meaning for the listener.” (Encyclopedia.com.)
