Small jazz groups brought out the best in Billie Holiday - especially groups as good as the one heard on this classic 1957 recording.
Ben Webster, Barney Kessel, Harry "Sweets" Edison and the other members of this stellar ensemble were not just gifted soloists but sensitive accompanists as well. Lady Day was rarely more ably supported than she was on this program of sturdy standards, including three gems by the Gershwin brothers -and she rarely sounded more luminous.
Originally released in 1957.
