    It Has To Be Lady Day & Pres For Me

    I think Billie Holiday's later recording, when her voice was like gravel, are really sad. But her recordings with Lester Young in the 1930's are purrrrrfection.

    I don't know a voice that gives me a thrill like Billie's. Smokey, tormented and feminine. I heard the first song, more than 30 years ago.  I wanted to hear them all. I got three double LP's and for a long time it was my most treasured musical possession. I never...
