“Billie Holiday is an important artist in the time of Black Lives Matter. Her voice and her songs are a permanent reminder that the second act of American life doesn’t just have to balance the first; it has to redress it, too. And that is more than a comeback.” - PENGUIN GUIDE TO JAZZ

“And while she was poignant in her interpretation of the dark ‘Strange Fruit’, she was perhaps even more moving when singing about the setbacks of love and everyday life, because that’s when she allowed us to take a glimpse into her own tragic life.” - JAZZ MAGAZINE
