Volume 6 of the Masterpieces series brings together Billie Holiday’s recordings from between 1935 and 1940, most of them with her trusty pianist Teddy Wilson. At the time, Lady Day who was beginning to gain popularity, was not yet the superstar she would later become but her genius was already starting to show in these moving archives. In standards such as These Foolish Things, Night & Day and Summertime, her unique timbre already carries her inner ills and great maturity. And the way she improvises to convey her emotions is totally revolutionary. A highlight of this album is Strange Fruits, which would later become one of the flagship songs of her repertoire, “strange fruits” symbolizing the bodies of black people hanging from trees in an America plagued by racism and segregation. Utterly moving. © Marc Zisman/Qobuz

Neo Soul in 10 Albums

In the midst of the 90s when hip-hop was going through its golden age, a revolution within soul music was also underway. With Erykah Badu, D’angelo, Jill Scott and many others, the genre found again its class: an echo of the simplicity and refinement that brought to life the albums of Marvin Gaye, Curtis Mayfield and Roberta Flack. After years in the shadow of the reigning ultra-commercial and soft R&B, the noticeably more underground Neo Soul, or Nu Soul, relit the flame of soul music and returned it to its roots in terms of both composition and lyricism. A brief but highly influential movement.

Billie Holiday, the Dark Blues

A soul drenched in blues, a broken heart and a battered body, Billie Holiday is still the ultimate representation of silk-laced suffering. A century after her birth, Lady Day is still undeniably the most iconic singer in the history of jazz music.
