Billie Holiday's first recordings for Norman Granz' Clef Records present a vocalist truly at the top of her craft, although she would begin a rapid decline soon thereafter. This 1952 recording (originally issued as a 10" LP, Billie Holiday Sings) places Holiday in front of small piano and tenor saxophone-led groups including jazz luminaries such as Oscar Peterson and Charlie Shavers, where her gentle phrasing sets the tone for the sessions, evoking lazy evenings and dreamy afternoons. The alcoholism and heroin use that would be her downfall by the end of this decade seems to be almost unfathomable during these recordings since Holiday is in as fine a voice as her work in the '30s, and the musical environment seems ideal for these slow torch songs. Solitude runs as the common theme throughout these 16 tracks; the idle breathiness of "These Foolish Things (Remind Me of You)" finds the vocalist casually reminiscing, and Barney Kessel's warm guitar lines frame the title track beautifully. Several of Holiday's best-known recordings came from this session, including outstanding versions of "I Only Have Eyes for You" and a darkly emotional "Love for Sale," making this album far and away the best work of her later years, and certainly a noteworthy moment of her entire career.

La nu soul en 10 albums

Au milieu des 90’s, alors que le hip-hop vit son âge d’or, la soul entame aussi sa révolution. Avec Erykah Badu, D’Angelo, Jill Scott et quelques autres, le genre retrouve la classe, la sobriété et le raffinement qui animaient les albums de Marvin Gaye, Curtis Mayfield ou Roberta Flack. Après les années de règne du R&B sirupeux ultra-commercial, la nu soul, nettement plus underground, ravive la flame de la soul originelle, dans ses arrangements comme dans ses textes. Un mouvement bref mais hautement influent.

Norah Jones en 10 chansons

Même si ses albums paraissent sur le label Blue Note, Norah Jones n’a jamais été vraiment jazz. Comme elle n’a jamais vraiment été pop, ni folk, country ou soul… Depuis le début des années 2000, la chanteuse et pianiste américaine a toujours tout fait pour flouter, voire éradiquer, les frontières stylistiques au profit de sa propre musique apatride, qu’elle adore partager avec d’autres musiciens venus d’horizons divers. Petit tour de son monde en 10 titres.

Tony Bennett, le dernier des crooners

Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Bing Crosby et Sammy Davis, Jr. ayant jeté l’éponge depuis des lustres, Tony Bennett sera le dernier des grands crooners. Un chanteur de charme, comme on disait au siècle dernier, dont la particularité reste une love story unique avec le jazz.
