Wonderful Billie but also ... what a band!
@pez @parafoxa I think this is a TV performance in 1957. Tenors = Lester Young, Coleman Hawkins, Ben Webster, baritone = Gerry Mulligan, trumpets = Roy Eldridge & Doc Cheatham, trombone = Vic Dickenson with Danny Barker, Mal Waldron, Milt Hinton & Osie Johnson on guitar , piano, bass & drums, respecively. What a band!
paging @lynn200 Think you will enjoy this one :-)
just played "Real History of Billie Holiday" (among many other records) hanging out with my brother last night. :-)
this is gorgeous. what an atmosphere..great choice. @soorajsoman thx for the pointer. also find @DugdaleAstbury...lots of good Billie around ,always a joy :)
Love Billie Holiday!
