||The Album I Seem to Choose Everytime|
Songs for Distingue Lovers album for sale While I am not a music critique, nor a musician, I enjoy music tremendously. Songs for Distingue Lovers CD music As a jazz fan for close to 45 years, I have assembled a collection of over 1800 jazz CDs. Songs for Distingue Lovers buy CD music Out of approximatley 40 some Billie Holiday CDs, I find that I constantly pick this recording when I am in the mood for her music. I guess I belong to the school that enjoys her later period where her voice was not what it was years previously. This recording of the "later years" seems to epitomize jazz for me. Backed by two of her favorite musicians - Harry "Sweets" Edison and Ben Webster, the album constantly swings. It has been my choice as a gift for others numerous times.
