Billie Holiday

Stay With Me

A ’91 reissue from late in Billie Holiday’s career. She was fading, but hadn’t lost the dramatic quality in her delivery, nor her ability to project and tell a shattering story. She’s backed by trumpeter Charlie Shavers, pianist Oscar Peterson, guitarist Herb Ellis, bassist Ray Brown, and drummer Ed Shaughnessy. The CD reissue has three bonus cuts.
