Billie Holiday with Lester Young..Lady Day and Prez 1937-41

Twenty four tracks, recorded during the golden years of jazz music. Great songs from that miraculous age of American song writing and performed with the heart-moving interpretive skill of Billie Holiday. Throughout, Billie is backed by her friend, tenor saxophone player Lester Young, leading a variety of small groups, each consisting of a who's who of the best jazz musicians of the period. The result is 24 gems, polished by the discipline imposed by the 3 minute playing length per side of the 78 rpm shellac. Transferred to compact disc, they have lost none of their magic. An ageless classic !
