Billie Holiday is undeniably one of the most influential singers of the twentieth century. As the first vocalist to cite instruments – and especially the horns of Louis Armstrong and Lester Young – as her main inspiration, she was one of the most relentlessly individual singers of the jazz age, transforming silly Tin Pan Alley songs into jazz standards. But her biography also reads as one of the saddest tales of the modern age. Her talents came at a cost; the price seemed to be a predilection for bad men and an addiction to drugs. Lady In Satin is the last major recording of Billie Holiday that was released during her lifetime, and it is also the most controversial. Ray Ellis' seem like a harsh contrast to Holiday's broken and fragile voice. Ellis himself was, at first, disappointed by the quality of the recording.
