"Moody, small ensemble jazz session with interesting ideas ..."
- The Baltimore Sun

"... loose, utterly relaxed sessions where the rhythm section settled in a happy groove behind the singer and the hornmen are free to say their piece …"
- DownBeat

One of the last studio albums Holiday recorded before her death, the familiar standards here are given her unique twist. The material as interpreted by Holiday is haunting and brooding, yet rich and expressive all at the same time. Holiday worked with a small combo of jazz all-stars on this session which included a reunion with musicians she had worked with in the 1930s and 1940s. Fans of "Lady Day" consistently rate this album as an excellent start to building an essential Billie Holiday collection.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
