Billie Holiday - 16 Most Requested Songs (1994) Retail CD
Classic Female Blues
The title of 16 Most Requested Songs isn't quite right: In fact, these are some chart hits (and some non-hits) that Holiday recorded with Teddy Brown's orchestra and her own early in her career (between 1935 and 1941), plus the awkward, very late number "I'm a Fool to Want You", from 1958. On the earlier tracks, Billie's a gritty but fairly ordinary jazz singer with a few nifty devices, though the bands are ace (they include Benny Goodman, Lester Young, and members of Duke Ellington and Count Basie's groups), and she swings like she rarely would later on. By the end of the disc, though, the classicsmore… start coming--"Gloomy Sunday", "God Bless the Child"--and the deep, abiding sadness that made her great emerges. --Douglas Wolk
