HOLIDAY, BILLIE

THE HITS (60 TRACKS)

Barcode: 8436569194584 / Cat: 648062 / 3 CD / Label: NEW CONTINENT

Questo cofanetto contiene alcune delle registrazioni più importanti della grande Billie Holiday (1915-1959), considerata da molti la miglior cantante jazz di tutti i tempi. Il primo CD raccoglie una selezione delle sue famose interpretazioni di ballads, mentre il secondo è dedicato ai suoi brani swing e up-tempo. Il terzo cd infine raccoglie le migliori versioni in studio realizzate dalla cantante delle sue stesse composizioni. Quattro brani di una serie di sessioni che vedevano Billie Holiday accompagnata da Ben Webster e Harry “Sweets” Edison sono stati aggiunti come bonus.
