Recorded live at Carnegie Hall on November 10, 1956

Recorded live at Carnegie Hall on November 10, 1956, The Essential Billie Holiday: Carnegie Hall Concert Recorded Live was produced by Norman Granz and is a stellar live recording of Holiday at her best.

On this release of the recording, the songs are interspersed with readings from Billie Holiday’s autobiography Lady Sings the Blues, read by Gilbert Millstein of The New York Times.

This live concert album, recorded at two packed shows at Carnegie Hall in November 1956, contains the biographical narration that accompanied the music during the concerts, recited by Gilbert Millstein of The New York Times. Billie Holiday is backed by the Chico Hamilton Quintet featuring guitarist Kenny Burrell and two horn sections including Coleman Hawkins and Al Cohn on tenor sax and Roy Eldridge and Buck Clayton on trumpet.

“Throughout the night, Billie was in superior form to what had sometimes been the case in the last years of her life … there was an outgoing warmth, a palpable eagerness to reach and touch the audience.The audience was hers from before she sang, greeting her and saying goodbye with heavy, loving applause. And at one time, the musicians too applauded. It was a night when Billie was on top, undeniably the best and most honest jazz singer alive.” –DownBeat
