200 Gram Vinyl Record

200 Gram LP  

Down Beat's West Coast editor John Tynan gave this a four star review, remarking that it is "...loose, utterly relaxed, a top flight solo work." The great Lady Day is backed by Harry Edison's trumpet, Ben Webster on tenor sax, Jimmy Rowles on piano, Barney Kessel on guitar, Red Mitchell on bass and Alvin Stoller on drums.

"Recorded in 1957, this album doesn't find Billie in her finest voice, but she still had a commanding way of singing a story and knew how to swing with the band - which, in this case, included Ben Webster, Roy Eldridge, and Barney Kessel. The sound is lively, reverberant, and bright - in a good way." - Fred Kaplan, The Absolute Sound, December 2005 (included in Kaplan's "Best-Sounding Jazz LPs")

This is an amazing album. Shockingly good sound quality. It has an ease about it that puts many modern recordings to shame.
