Album: Lady Sings the Blues. I wished on the moon, for something I never knew I wished on the moon, for more than I ever knew A sweeter rose, a softer sky On April days that would not dance away I wished on the stars to throw me a beam or two I begged of a stars and asked for a dream or two I looked for every loveliness, it all came true I wished on the moon for you I wished on the moon, for something I never knew I wished on the moon, for more than I ever knew A sweeter rose, a softer sky On April days that would not dance away I wished on a stars to throw me a beam or two I begged of a stars and asked for a dream or two I looked for every loveliness, it all came true I wished on the moon, wished on the moon for you I wished on the moon for you.

Holiday is a singer, limited to novelty music. It's a great historical track though: It was her first recording, arranged by the man who "discovered her," John Hammond. Holiday was just 18 years old. Skip ahead to July , and, oooo-ooo-oooo, what two little years can do.
The horn soloists are in top form, and Holiday sounds confident and swinging, sounding even more ebullient than Wilson's usual thrills and trills piano. By the time of "A Fine Romance," in September , Billie Holiday is in full form, using a coarser, somewhat flatter delivery that conveys the song's ironic, downbeat lyrics perfectly. Except for the opening number, all the tracks on performed by various permutations of either the Teddy Wilson or the Billie Holiday Orchestra.
While "Lady" might sing the blues, she actually didn't perform too many numbers in a traditional blues-form. Bunny Berigan gets an interesting sax growl out of his trumpet, and Artie Shaw on clarinet does little but hit some screaming high notes at the conclusion. The remaining 12 tracks feature her famous, simpatico partner, trumpeter Lester Young.
His soft, flowing trumpet lines complement Billie's loose flowing style, as she and Young blend together on such songs such as "This Year's Kisses," "Mean to Me" and "Foolin' Myself," lifting them to extraordinary heights. Only her more mature voice of the mid's is as well regarded as this period. Joe Thomas replaces Young on this number. Billie how well she meshes with the band on "Mean to Me," which has Young on tenor, Johnny Hodges on alto, and Buck Clayton on trumpet.
Most of the songs are 3 minutes or under , and they one wanting more. The band cooks just as much on the slightly hokey "Me. Myself, and I. Her control, dynamics, emotional expression, and phrasing are outstanding and unmatched.Jun 03, · OK STORE: Accessories, Apparel, Homeware - click here - naheasontelifa.puttvabwallveponcisolezytofouli.co Sheet music & Albums: naheasontelifa.puttvabwallveponcisolezytofouli.co Donate: htt.
