This is not Billie Holiday. This is Lorraine Glover, wife of hard bop trumpet star Donald Byrd. The photograph was taken by famed jazz photographer William Claxton in 1960 – when Billie Holiday was already dead. This beautiful photo keeps popping up on the internet with the wrong caption! Thanx to Christine Whyte for the correction!
Fake - A great photo, often mislabeled as "Young Billie Holiday." As several people have pointed out, the era is wrong. This lovely woman is Lorraine Glover-Yourna Byrd, wife of jazz trumpeter Donald Byrd. She was photographed on 48th Street in NYC in 1960 by William Claxton.
FAKE: This is often presented as being a photo of Billie Holiday. FACT: It's definitely not Billie but there's an argument over who it is. One camp says it is Lorraine (Yourna) Byrd, wife of trumpeter Donald Byrd on 48th St. Others insist it's Lorraine Glover in a photo by William Claxton. Both say it was taken in 1960.
This photo keeps popping up on Pinterest as Billie Holiday, but it is not Billie. This is Lorraine Glover, wife of famous hardbop trumpet player Donald Byrd. And it was shot by William Claxton in 1960. There are several books of Claxton’s work in which this photo is featured (usually just credited “Mrs. Donald Byrd”

This is Lorraine Glover, wife of hard bop trumpet star Donald Byrd. Photograph was taken by famed jazz photographer William Claxton in 1960 – when Billie Holiday was already dead.
This is NOT ‘A young Billie Holiday’. It is Lorraine Glover by William Claxton. Lorraine Glover, was the wife of hard bop trumpet star Donald Byrd. Photograph was taken by famed jazz photographer William Claxton in 1960 – when Billie Holiday was already dead. (revised)
"I consistently see this woman misidentified as either jazz trumpetist Valaida Snow or of all people jazz legend Billie Holiday.The gorgeous young woman in the above photo is the wife of jazz trumpeter Donald Byrd. Her name is (drum roll please .....) Lorraine Glover. NOT Valaida Snow and sure as hell NOT Billie Holiday (for that matter both Snow and Holiday were dead by the time the above image was taken)."

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.
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.)

۞ In Harlem she started singing in various night clubs. Holiday took her professional pseudonym from Billie Dove, an actress she admired, and the musician Clarence Holiday, her probable father. Her delivery made Billie Holiday's performances recognizable throughout her career. Her improvisation compensated for lack of musical education. Holiday said that she always wanted her voice to sound like an instrument.

Billie Holiday - An American Jazz Singer and Songwriter :: Known as "Lady Day", Billie's vocal style pioneered a new way of manipulating phrasing and tempo. #GraveyardGreats #BillieHoliday
Billie Holiday (born Eleanora Fagan ; April 7, 1915 – July 17, 1959) was an American jazz singer and songwriter. Nicknamed "Lady Day" by her friend and musical ... 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.
"Whenever I'd go see her, I always asked Billie to sing 'I Loves You, Porgy,' because when she sang 'don't let him touch me with his hot hands,' you could almost feel that shit she was feeling. It was beautiful and sad the way she sang that. Everybody loves Billie." ~ Miles Davis on Billie Holiday
Billie Holiday didn't write that many of her songs, but her gift, like that of an inspired classical musician, was in the interpretation. Her voice summoned that which was dramatic, urgent and necessary as if from the center of the earth. Today's politically-minded performers could take inspiration from her protest music; she knew that imagery and real soul impact listeners more strongly than corny, overly-dogmatic messages.
Billie Holiday - See my pin about Van Gough; the world was too much for this genius, this marvel. You can fall into a Billy Holiday song and think soft sweet thoughts and then you can hear the truth; she was so brave when she sang Strange Fruit. It is unbelievable that Billie Holiday, Nat King Cole, all the great jazz men et al could not enter certain restaurants, hotels and so on. We have so much to answer for - and the sins continue.

Billie Holiday: for me she is what started it all for a lead female singer. Her adolescent years although difficult made her the inspiration she is today. Her voice so recognizable its forever implanted in our brains.
