The Sensitive Billie Holiday 1940-1949


Publisher: Storyville Records
Artist: Billie Holiday
Format: Audio / Video | Recorded Performance

A collection of quintessential jazz tracks recorded between 1940 and 1949, by one of the greatest female vocalists of all time- Billie Holiday. There are a total of twenty-six stunning tunes on this CD which span the years 1940-1949, with some performed live and the remainder in the studio including one of Holiday’s signature tunes I Cover the Waterfront.

Recorded over eleven different sessions, there are many magic moments here, including her last official recordings with tenor saxophonist Lester Young and Pianist Teddy Wilson. As always Holiday sings wonderfully throughout- for instance, her fabulous bluesy renditions of St. Louis Blues and Loveless Love are full of the passion and sentiment that characterised her timeless voice.
