This Is Jazz, Vol. 15

Though purists will find Billie Holiday's This Is Jazz, Vol. 15 frustratingly incomplete, it isn't designed for them. The entire This is Jazz series is targeted at casual fans and neophytes, who only want a sampling of a famous jazz artist. In that sense, this disc does its job quite well, featuring 16 of Holiday's best-known songs, including the original version of "God Bless the Child." Of course, this only is the tip of the iceberg as far as Holiday's work goes -- after all, it only features her music for Columbia -- but it's enough to spark the interest of anyone wanting to explore her vast catalog.
