Lady in Satin, presented here in both its Stereo and Mono versions, marked Billie Holiday’s last big hit and her second to last album ever. It represents something close to her swan song. Although some live recordings made after that Columbia album exist, and she even made a second album with Ray Ellis for MGM, none of these documents were as enduring as Lady in Satin. In fact, Billie herself loved this album, on which she fully impregnates the music with her soul, even though the effects of a lifetime of drug abuse and alcoholism are apparent in her voice. Most jazz fans now consider Lady in Satin to be Holiday’s last great effort.
