Format: Audio CD
"Columbia" collected works of Billie Holiday is something Im the most proud of in my CD collection - in fact,everything else could go as far as Im concerned,but this is timeless and priceless music that Im always returning to.This first 3 volumes follows Bille's growth into unique jazz artist and althought there is lot of poor quality of songs thrown upon her by the music publishers at the time of her beginning,mostly the result were faboulous.This CD's also shows that it was collaboration between her and the best musicians of the day (Benny Goodman,Teddy Wilson,Buck Clayton,Gene Krupa and others) that made this songs work: the collective spirit turns some of silly songs into gold ("What A Little Moonlight Can Do").Its not only Billie,but the whole art of collaboration between singer and musicians that its brilliant here! Joy and spontaneity in these first,early work of a woman remebered for her later sad work is - for me - the most beautiful music I've ever heard.
