    I'm not quite sure if this will be appreciated here or not, but I found this to be an absolute sublime jewel of American blues music history while searching for a Jerry Mulligan (baritone sax) clip.

    It blew me away with it's cool feeling, and is an instant favorite.

    Maybe it will be for some of you as well - it's considered a classic summit of some of the greatest American jazz people of it's era (1957).

    Billie Holiday is clearly in the right mood ... her facial expressions and reactions to the solos are amazing.

    Enjoy, and hope some of you dig it like I do.

    If you instead find it distasteful ..... just click it off and pardon the intrusion.

    Billy Holiday, what a tragedy, what a great singer. The drugs did her in so much lost potential.Bill

    Billie Holiday, greatest female blues singer ever....

    that whole jazz scene, Miles, Trane, Charlie Parker and many other greats all gave in to the needle, the big H...what a fricken shame.

    thanks for the posting
