Dear All About Jazz Readers,

If you're familiar with All About Jazz, you know that we've dedicated over two decades to supporting jazz as an art form, and more importantly, the creative musicians who make it. Our enduring commitment has made All About Jazz one of the most culturally important websites of its kind in the world reaching hundreds of thousands of readers every month. However, to expand our offerings and develop new means to foster jazz discovery we need your help.

You can become a sustaining member for a modest $20 and in return, we'll immediately hide those pesky Google ads PLUS deliver exclusive content and provide access to future articles for a full year! This combination will not only improve your AAJ experience, it will allow us to continue to rigorously build on the great work we first started in 1995. Read on to view our project ideas...

Annie Ross: Billie Holiday, Lady in Satin

William Ellis By

She was my hero, she was my mentor, she was my idol. I got to know her very very well and I was very proud that I did, because she was a real buddy of mine.

I think there's a whole life in this voice for her to sing the songs that she sings; I mean, you could cry listening to her and I just think she was like a beautiful ebony statue.

Great songs.
