I’m currently listening to disc two of the 10-disc box set The Complete Billie Holiday on Verve 1945 – 1959 that my lovely wife gave me as a birthday present almost 10 days ago.
Tracks 1-8 on the disc I’m currently listening to were taken from a late spring 1952 Los Angeles recording session. Tracks 9-14 were taken from what was probably a July 27, 1952 recording session in NYC, and tracks 15-24, which round out this disc, were taken from a live Jazz Club USA concert performance in Germany on January 23, 1954.
