1956 Classic Reissued On Vinyl LP!

Norman Granz brings together Barney Kessel on guitar, Ben Webster on tenor sax and Harry "Sweets" Edison on trumpet to back up Billie on this 1956 classic.

"Songs for Distingué Lovers forms part of the last series of extensive small-group recordings that Lady Day would make in the studio. Although her voice was largely shot at this point, she puts so much feeling into the lyrics that it's easy to overlook her dark sound. The band is a major asset, and made up of all-stars: trumpeter Harry 'Sweets' Edison, tenor saxophonist Ben Webster, pianist Jimmie Rowles, guitarist Barney Kessel, bassist Red Mitchell, and Alvin Stoller or Larry Bunker on drums. There are plenty of short solos for Edison, Webster, and Kessel. There are plenty of haunting moments, even if one could tell (even at the time) that the end was probably drawing near for the singer." - AllMusic
