ORIGINAL DOWNBEAT REVIEW

“This is a Billie who has experienced a lot of pain and some joy in the years between and a Billie whose life-perspective has changed, as does everyone’s, with increasing years. When she’s right –and she’s absorbingly right on these sides– no one yet is able to touch Billie as the most emotionally striking singer in jazz, 20 years ago or today. Totally recommended.” (Nat Hentoff)
