The biography of Billie Holiday by Alain Gerber , illustrated by Claire Braud and accompanied by 2 compact discs.

Of all the jazz singers, Billie Holiday is the most moving. Certainly, others have illustrated jazz singing in a more technical, more brilliant or more spectacular way, but none has achieved this degree of intensity in the interpretation of the slightest song, none has been able to make the melodies with such force, and none has been able to detail the words with such an accent of truth.

CD 1 presents the dark, almost tragic side of Billie while CD 2 presents a lesser known aspect , that of the cheerful singer who knows what " swinging " means.
