Billie Holiday: Blue Billie (2002)

Billie Holiday: Blue Billie No stars How we rate: our writers tend to review music they like within their preferred genres.

Columbia’s Legacy label breaks up the recent all-encompassing Billie Holiday box set into three different themed collections.

The Legacy label takes a look at Billie’s work in the blues idiom on “Blue Billie.” Many of these recordings are quite familiar to many Billie fans, such as “God Bless the Child: and “Night and Day.” But this collection has a nice flow to it that makes an otherwise unexciting collection into a nice compilation that plays well from beginning to end.

A thoughtful approach and reorganization of an already stellar body of work.
