Born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (1915) - Billie Holiday (birth name - Eleanora Fagan) was one of the most popular, black, female, jazz singers of her generation.

Raised in a decidedly troubled environment - Holiday (aka. Lady Day) began singing in Harlem nightclubs at the tender age of just 14.

This music compilation titled "Forever Lady Day" is a 3-disc set of 45 tracks covering the genres of swing, blues, R&B, torch songs, and jazz standards.

Two of my favourites are - "Jeepers Creepers" and "Ghost Of A Chance".

*Note* - In 1959 - Billie Holiday (44 at the time) died in absolute poverty. The cause of her death was heart failure due to cirrhosis of the liver.

With the exception of two musics (one where Holiday sounds almost as if she was drunk, and another live recording, that personally do not enjoy) this is a wonderful CD.
