Lady in Autumn: The Best of the Verve Years by Billie Holiday: Billie Holiday’s rough and tumble lifestyle took its toll on her voice in later years but many, including jazz great Miles Davis, thought her final recordings were some of her best. Holiday’s approach to lyrics and her improvisation with the melody make her among the best in jazz history. This outstanding 2-disc collection features such classics as Strange Fruit, Trav’lin’ Light, Nice Work if You Can Get it, and God Bless the Child.
