Lady Sings the Blues is an album by American jazz vocalist Billie Holiday released in December 1956. It was Holiday's last album released on Clef Records; the following year, the label would be absorbed by Verve Records. Lady Sings the Blues was taken from sessions taped during 1954 and 1956. It was released simultaneously with her ghostwritten autobiography of the same name.
This album of songs from 1935 to 1941 comes from an era that some wouldn't necessarily associate Billie Holiday with: big band and swing. It'sa compilation from the start of her career when she recorded with many bands and most of her records ended up in jukeboxes. There are critics who have hailed this time as being trite with shoddy songs, and if swing ain't your thing then Lady Day Swings is unlikely to be your favourite album. However, there is an awful lot in its favour.

And of course to 'Lady Day' herself. Billie Holiday -(April 7th 1915 - July 17th 1959) . Rebecca Hosking I LOVE Billie Holiday's music, but I appreciate how this album doesn't just remix her recordings a la Verve Remixed (although it does a bit), but also takes her as an inspiration for some new compositions that still invoke her spirit.
