Revisionists and counter-revisionists argue back and forth, but it remains unmistakable that Billie Holiday’s inimitable way with a heartache song only deepened as her own life unravelled. A compilation of her dozen years recordingfor Verve was put out under the title Lady in Autumn, which is a marketing cliché, 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
