Billie Holiday - Lover Man (1985)

Billie Holiday (born Eleanora Fagan; April 7, 1915 – July 17, 1959) was an American jazz singer and songwriter.
Nicknamed "Lady Day" by her friend and musical partner Lester Young, Holiday had a seminal influence on jazz and pop singing.
Her vocal style, strongly inspired by jazz instrumentalists, pioneered a new way of manipulating phrasing and tempo.

“Lover Man” released in 1985, is A full LP issue of singles that Billie Holiday recorded for Decca during the mid and late 40s – all small group sessions, with occasional added instrumentation on small string sections, or vocals.


The sides are a nice counterpoint to Billie's work for Verve and Columbia – as the players differ nicely on many of the numbers, and a few tracks even feature a backing vocal group!

Titles include:
 "Lover Man",
"Old Devil Called Love"
"Porgy"
"Girls Were Meant To Take Care Of Boys"
"This Is Heaven To Me"
"There Is No Greater Love", and "Solitude".
