No one has ever sung or will ever sing like Billie Holiday (1915-1959). Although her vocal range was much more limited than those of other famous jazz singers like Sarah Vaughan or Ella Fitzgerald (both of whom had an astonishing versatility from the low to the high registers), Billie made her interpretations so expressive that even the most trite lyrics sounded almost profound. This set consist of her 14 greatest hits, among them her two studio versions of the poignant protest song âStrange Fruit,â her unforgettable reading of âAll of Meâ with Lester Young on tenor sax, and her best recordings of her own compositions âFine and Mellow,â âGod Bless the Child,â âLady Sings the Bluesâ (with music by the great Herbie Nichols), and âDonât Explain.â

BILLIE HOLIDAY, vocals on all tracks, with:

Collective personnel: Frankie Newton, Harry âSweetsâ Edison, Emmett Berry,

Doc Cheatham (tp), Vic Dickenson (tb), Tab Smith (as), Lester Young, Ben Webster, Coleman Hawkins (ts), Sonny White, Teddy Wilson, Wynton Kelly (p),
