Comprised of the last five studio dates Billie Holiday did for Verve, Songs For Distingue Lovers finds her in her ideal environment; that of a small jazz combo. Accompanied by a legendary line-up including Sweets Edison, Ben Webster and Barney Kessel, Holiday sang with the clear enunciation and easy swing that had become her trademark. Included are standards by Rodgers & Hart, the Gershwins and Cole Porter.

Not knowing what to expect, each track ended up being patiently executed without a rushed pace to get through each song with hurried solos. This is the style of jazz I'm growing to like most; a solid intro, an introduction to a pristine solo voice, followed by each solo instrument doing their thing.
The 'band' plays very well together, all performers at the top of their game.
This SACD sounds friggin awesome, I've never heard Billie Holiday's voice so sweet before.
This is my first exposure to a refined, stereo, hi-resolution modern Billie Holiday production. It's superb. Who knew she actually has a wonderful voice. This recording, this mastering, sounds more like a warm late 50's Nat King Cole presentation and less like the tinny mono distant screeching so often found in Billie Holiday recordings.
I thought I was already in love with Billie Holiday the lady, after hearing this I considered killing myself just to see if I could go find her somewhere.
