'Revisionists and counter-revisionists
argue back and forth, but it remains
unmistakable that Holiday's inimitable
way with a heartache song only
deepened as her own life unravelled. A
compilation of her dozen years recording
for Verve was put out under the title Lady
in Autumn, which is a marketing clichÃ©,
but also a perfect description, for these
are autumnal performances: ripe with
experience, laden with anticipations of
the chill of death, hanging on precariously
but ready to fall.'
PENGUIN GUIDE TO JAZZ
'Every track is performed in an inimitable and extraordinary way, and the tragic mood never falls into the pathetic.
Even today Billie continues to influence the style of innumerable singers and instrumentalists, both male and female.
What's the secret? Just the fact that Billie Holiday simply invented a way of singing: a language.'Jazz Magazine
