Billie Holiday - Sings LP


180-Gram Virgin Vinyl Limited Edition of 1000 copies. After an impasse recording with tightly arranged groups and big bands with strings, Billie Holiday signed her last long-term contract with Norman Granz. He had showcased her as a star with his Jazz at the Philharmonic tours in the mid- and late forties, and when he signed her as a recording artist in 1952, he tried to repeat the small group magic of her early days. On Billie Holiday Sings, she is backed by an all-star sextet including Charlie Shavers on trumpet, Flip Phillips on tenor sax, Oscar Peterson on piano, and Barney Kessel on guitar, among others. THE COMPLETE LP + 4 BONUS TRACKS - 180-gram VIRGIN VINYL LIMITED EDITION of 1,000 COPIES.
