Taken from a pair of sessions taped during 1955-1956, Lady Sings the Blues finds Holiday in top form, backed by the sympathetic likes of tenor saxophonist Paul Quinichette, trumpeters Charlie Shavers and Harry Edison, pianist Wynton Kelly, and guitarists Kenny Burrell and Barney Kessel. While these autumnal sides bear some frayed vocal moments, the majority here, including unparalleled versions of "No Good Man," "Some Other Spring," and "Lady Sings the Blues," still ranks with her best material.
