Stan Getz / Billie Holiday
Billie Holiday (vocals)
Stan Getz (tenor sax)
Buster Harding (piano)
John Fields (bass)
Marquis Foster (drums)

"This Billie Holiday set works for me in so many ways. The small combo playing behind her is simplicity and utility at its finest. The intimate supper club sound ( I love the introduction .)The slurring, just behind the beat vocals ( and this is latter day Billie, so what you get are the seasoned, almost world -weary vocals that are a bit deeper, but more nuanced). It features my favorite performance of I Cover the Waterfront ever. Ever. This is one cd I will turn to again and again, one that I could not do without and Very Highly Recommended. "
"Billie Holiday's voice is superb, and the musicians that back
her up keep it relaxed and genuine." So no big solo's by Stan though, but he is enjoyed in background through out.
