Richard Brody on John Szwed’s new book, “Billie Holiday: The Musician and the Myth”:In general, the desire of even the most discerning critics, such as Szwed, to separate art and life, to analyze the formal traits of works as if they were dissociable from the experience and the emotions that inspire them and that they convey, is both noble and doomed—noble, because artists deserve to be honored for their achievements, and doomed, because the formal and systematic nature of those achievements isn

Louis Armstrong, Billie Holiday, and Barney Bigard in New Orleans (1947, dir. Arthur Lubin) New Orleans featured Holiday’s only major film role. Holiday had several musical numbers in the film, however, she was unhappy that her role was that of a maid. In her autobiography, she wrote: “I thought I was going to play myself in it. I thought I was going to be Billie Holiday doing a couple of songs in a nightclub setting and that would be that. I should have known better. When I saw th

Best-known from Billie Holiday's haunting 1939 rendition, the song "Strange Fruit" is a harrowing portrayal of the lynching of a black man in the American South. "Strange Fruit" actually began as a poem by Abel Meeropol, a Jewish schoolteacher and union activist from the Bronx who later set it to music. Disturbed by a photograph of a lynching, the teacher wrote the stark verse and brooding melody under the pseudonym Lewis Allan in the late 1930s.
Strange Fruit. Billie Holiday. Strange Fruit”, the song that made her famous in 1939, is a protest song which exposed American racism and particularly the lynching of African Americans that occurred chiefly in the South but also in other regions of the United States. Her version of the song, nowcovered by many artists, was inducted in the Hall of Fame in 1978 and included in the list of Song of the Century by the Recording Industry of America and the National Endowment for Arts.

Billie Holiday singing
"Music is your experience, your thoughts, your wisdom. If you don't live it, it won't come out of your horn." - Charlie Parker
Ideas Including, Sweet, Saxophone
Charles Christopher Parker, Jr. (Bird) ~ Parker was a highly influential jazz soloist and a leading figure in the development of bebop. He introduced revolutionary harmonic ideas including rapid passing chords, new variants of altered chords, and chord substitutions. His tone ranged from clean and penetrating to sweet and somber. He was an icon for the hipster subculture and the Beat Generation, personifying the jazz musician as an uncompromising artist and intellectual.

"LADY DAY"- BILLIE HOLLIDAY - "No two people on Earth are alike, and it's got to be that way in music or else it isn't music."
#BillieHoliday (Eleanora Fagan Gough, April 7, 1915 – July 17, 1959) was an American jazz singer and songwriter. Nicknamed Lady Day, Holiday was 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. Above all, she was admired for her deeply personal and intimate approach to singing.

I think that’s one of the greatest things you can do in life and we all try to do it in some way. The musician’s is through his music.

Stanley Getz was an American jazz saxophonist. Playing primarily the tenor saxophone, Getz was known as "The Sound" because of his warm, lyrical tone. He came to prominence in the late 1940s with Woody Herman's big band. Getz went on to perform in bebop, cool jazz and third stream, but is perhaps best known for popularizing bossa nova, with "The Girl from Ipanema".
Stan Getz is one of my favourite tenor saxophone players and , luckily, i had the chance to see him playng live in the once famous "Bologna Jazz Festival" . The "Bologna Jazz Festival" was an extremely important international musical event , considering how small my city is. I had the pleasure to see playng live musicians such as Miles Davis, Charlie Mingus, Dizzy Gillespie, Sun Ra Arkestra, B.B.King, Rashaan Roland Kirk, Duke Ellington, Thelonius Monk, Gerry Mulligan and many other stars.

NOT BILLIE HOLIDAY, but a pic I like anyway. This is either Lorraine Glover or Yourna Byrd on 48th Street, New York City c.1960 // by William Caxton. Both names have been mentioned for the wife of famous hard-bop trumpet player Donald Byrd.
The Jazz Scene 1960. William Claxton photographed jazz musicians for record labels. Credited as the wife of be-bop trumpeter Donald Byrd. Her name is Lorraine Glover and Byrds song Elgy stands for her initials. Or her name is Yourna Byrd. dont quote me.
Yourna Byrd, (also called Lorraine Glover) wife of Jazz trumpeter Donald Byrd, photographed in 1960 by William Claxton. (Note: this is Not! Billie Holiday, despite being all over Pinterest wrongly labled.) Finally a correct attribution.
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.
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.
This is NOT Billie Holiday!!!!!!!!!! This is Lorraine Glover! Wife of Hardbop Trumpeter Donald Byrd
Not Billie Holiday - This is actually the wife of hard bop trumpet player Donald Byrd. Taken by William Claxton, 1960. There is on-going controversy about her name. Yourna Byrd vs. Lorraine Glover. One person stated that in Mr. Byrd's obituary that Lorraine Glover was listed as his wife, but he also recorded a song entitled Yourna that is said to be for his wife. Are they the same person? No matter, it's still not Lady Day!
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(sometimes listed as Yourna Byrd - her nickname), wife of jazz trumpeter Donald Byrd. She was photographed on 48th Street in NYC in 1960 by William Claxton.
