LP (12" album, 33 rpm), Import, Remastered. Billie Holiday Ray Ellis Format: Vinyl. Most jazz fans now consider Lady in Satin to be Holiday's last great effort, and she also loved the album herself. It is true that her voice, after a life of self-abuse, wasn't the same as on her earliest 1930s recordings. Her expressiveness, however, would remain with her to the end, and this album seems to showcase her baring her soul like never before.
Lady In Satin (1958) is Billie’s penultimate album completed in her lifetime. Produced by Irving Townsend, and engineered by Fred Plaut, its sound is sensuous, rich and swelling with emotion – though much criticized by Lady’s fans who had grown to enjoy her recordings with deft jazz combos earlier in the decade. The song material for Lady in Satin derived from the Great American Songbook, but was unlike the bulk of Holiday’s recordings. 3CDs + 12 page booklet, CD1 Lady In Satin’ original album + Fine And Mellow one song excerpt from The Sound Of Jazz with Billie Holiday accompanied by Lester Young, Coleman Hawkins, Ben Webster, Mal Waldron, Jo Jone.

Lady in Satin is now considered one of Billie Holiday’s greatest albums. She may have lost much of her upper range due to heroin addiction, but her delivery is infused with her experience both tragic with its abusive relationships, prison stints and drug addiction, and triumphant with her musical success. During the record sessions she drank her vodka neat, but still managed to infuse immense feeling into ‘You’ve Changed’ and ‘I Get Along Without You Very Well’. Listen: Billie Holiday ‘Lady in Satin’ Legacy Playlist. However, for others this album was a career high point. Trumpeter Buck Clayton recalled, The most emotional moment was her listening to the playback of I’m a Fool to Want You. There were tears in her eye. fter we finished the album I went into the control room and listened to all the takes. I must admit I was unhappy with her performance, but I was just listening musically instead of emotionally.
Unfortunately, Billie Holiday is remembered probably more for her life than for her music and this is wrong, for she is one of the most important musicians in the entire history of jazz. HORWITZ: What makes her that way - what made her so important? SPELLMAN: Well, she is in that first generation of great microphone singers. HORWITZ: And what's a song that demonstrates that subtlety in this important album, Lady in Satin? SPELLMAN: Well, every song on this album demonstrates that, Murray, and I would say that more than any other song, the song "You've Changed" demonstrates the power of this record. Here you have Billie Holiday really stripped down to the minimum. You can hear the slurs, the way she breaks notes, the way she bends even one-syllable words.
