    Hardcover↠ Billie Holiday Epub å billie free, holiday book, Billie Holiday ePUBProbably the best book I've read about Billie Holiday and the genius of her musical talent Szwed takes the long view on Holiday focusing his sights on what made her vocalizations so uniue and so enduring examining the music she made and the genres that surrounded that music Szwed deals with Holiday's personal story tragically self destructive as it was only in terms of how it affected her music Most heartbreaking were his descriptions of the last two albums she recorded While critics and biographers pan or ignore them Szwed is able to see them in a different light The next to last album that Holiday recorded Lady in Satin was less than a year before the dama

  • Tracy

    Hardcover↠ Billie Holiday Epub å billie free, holiday book, Billie Holiday ePUBThis book ended up being a biography based on an autobiography written while she was still alive It was interesting in a few parts but it was very drawn out and slow in the majority of it To be honest it left me wanting to go read her original autobiography rather than finishing this book I routinely found myself thinking that and feeling sad that I had so much of this book to dredge through to get to it If you're a Billy Holiday nut it might be worth finding out a few new facts Otherwise skip it and read Lady Sings the Blues
