"... there are some real gems."
- The Baltimore Sun

"... she achieved a perfect, lapidary balance, one that can still guide aspiring singers on how to interpret a song ... these sessions provide us with Holiday's last perky swing romps ..."
- All About Jazz

The Commodore recordings were made for Milt Gablers small Commodore label and the master takes were originally distributed two per disc on 78 r.p.m issues. The material was recorded in 1939 and 1944 by Milt Gabler. The original 78 that was Strange Fruit b/w Fine and Mellow, was released by Gabler because Columbias John Hammond refused to record the song. Holiday was under contract to the label at the time, but Hammond loosened the reins a bit and allowed her the leeway to cut it for Commodore.

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!
