Billie HolidayEssential Billie Holiday Carnegie Hall Concert ... CD
Verve, 1956. Used ... $4.99
A very unusual concert from Billie Holiday – one that features narration by Gilbert Millstein, telling the story of Billie's life! The format is quite unusual – almost a live documentary, with the subject of the documentary there in person herself! Millstein narrates from the start, and Billie emerges with songs throughout – using Millstein's narration to bracket portions of her career, then delivering the tunes associated with that portion. Backing is by an all-hip group that includes Coleman Hawkins, Kenny Burrell, Chico Hamilton, Roy Eldridge, and Buck Clayton – and titles include "I Cried For You", "My Man", "Don't Explain", "Lady Sings The Blues", "Body & Soul", "I Love My Man", and "Yesterdays".

✨✧ Billie PooleConfessin' The Blues ... CD
Riverside/OJC, 1962. Used ... $6.99
The title's an apt one, because Billie Poole sings here in a mode that's steeped in styles borrowed strongly from gospel and blues – but delivered more in a jazz-based mode overall! The backing here is one aspect that makes the record especially strong – a quartet with Kenny Burrell on guitar, Junior Mance on piano, Bob Cranshaw on bass, and Mickey Roker on drums – all grooving in a rollicking 60s soul jazz way that brings more life into Billie's music than it might otherwise have, ensuring that most numbers stay away from cliche. Titles include "Them Blues", "I Worry Bout You", "When Your Well Runs Dry", "Ain't That Love", "The Man That Got Away", and "Jailhouse Blues". CD
