It is undeniable that Billie Holiday's singing changed in her later years. Her voice darkened and shifted to a lower range. Her economy of means distilled her sound to its expressive essence - a kind of heightened speech. The classic LP Songs for Distingué Lovers has also deepened and become burnished with time. Maybe it's that still-arresting word, "distingué"; maybe it's that iconic, tinted image of Lady Day on the cover. But now that legendary LP, with the singer's best studio work of the fifties, is available through the Acoustic Sounds Series.
