Some of the earliest Billie Holiday work for Verve Records – material recorded in a mid 40s Jazz At The Philharmonic session, already showing the great setting the label was able to allow! Billie's voice is wonderful – really coming into its own mature modes – and backing is by a small combo that features the excellent Willie Smith on alto, plus Milt Raskin on piano, and Red Callender on bass. Milt plays solo behind Billie on a classic reading of "Strange Fruit" – and other tracks include "Billie's Blues", "All Of Me", "Body & Soul", and "The Man I Love".

Incredible work from Scandinavian singer Karin Krog! Although Krog began her career as a straight jazz vocalist, she cut a number of records in the 70's that had her pushing into a cool territory that was a lot more progressive, and which had some great Euro-fusion touches – like the sorts ...
