Billie Holiday Songs For Distingue Lovers on Hybrid SACD from Analogue Productions

It is undeniable that Billie Holiday's singing changed in her later years. Her voice darkened and shifted to a lower range. Her economy of means distilled her sound to its expressive essence, a kind of heightened speech. The classic 1957 Verve release Songs For Distingue Lovers, has also deepened and become burnished with time.

Maybe it's that still-arresting word distingué; maybe it's that iconic, tinted image of Lady Day on the cover. All in all, the legendary Norman Granz produced set features what is arguably the singer's best studio work of the '50s. Iconic accompaniment from the likes of Harry Edison (trumpet), Ben Webster (tenor sax), Jimmy Rowles (piano), Barney Kessel (guitar), Red Mitchell (bass) and Alvin Stoller (drums) never hurts either.

This product is a Hybrid SACD designed to play in both CD and SACD players, as well as all SACD-compatible DVD players.
