The recordings Billie Holiday made between 1933 and 1944 for Columbia and its associated labels represent not only her finest work, but American jazz and pop singing at its zenith.
This legendary collection is certainly one of the most importent to ever be released for any artist, and contains every single performance in her absolute prime. She masterfully renders a host of mostly-classic pop tunes with the singularity of what we have become to know as genius.
Billie Holiday will forever be the enduring Voice of Jazz.
