    Lady Day's Emotional Swansong

    Very few female singers lead a life that was as troubled and turbulent as Billie Holiday. Her career was full of beautiful and transcendent moments, such as the racially charged "Strange Fruit" and the legendary suicide anthem, "Gloomy Sunday". Her life was a string of failed relationships, constant battles with authorities and most troublesome of all, her endless battle with heroin addiction. By the time she recorded "Latin In Satin" in 1958, her gorgeous contralto voice was now scarred and scratchy. Despite this, Holiday still managed to create a jazz/pop masterpiece. There were many reasons for this. One of them was that Holiday still had the ability to make a song her own, to make it sound as if she wrote it herself or the song had something to say about her own life (such as "You Don't Know What Love Is", "Glad To Be Unhappy" and "The End Of A Love Affair"). How many singers today have that ability? Another reason is that Holiday got more than enough help from Ray Ellis and His Orchestra, creating a lush canvas that amplified the emotion in Holiday's once-beautiful voice. Just seventeen months after making this brilliant album, Billie Holiday, almost broke, completely infirmed and under arrest in a hospital bed, would be gone. In terms of tragedy alone, singers like Edith Piaf, Sinead O'Connor and Amy Winehouse have nothing on Billie Holiday. The same could also be said about her timeless talent.
