This live recording of “Stormy Weather” starts with applause and some wavering piano, but when Holiday’s vocals come through, they’re clear as day. Buck Clayton’s trumpet offers sultry accompaniment in the background, but this is truly a showcase for the richness of Holiday’s voice, which folds over the song like melted butter. “Life is bare, gloom and misery everywhere,” she sings, but in Holiday’s hands, she makes misery divine. Beautifully remastered from the most pristine Vinyl sources available. Billie as you’ve never heard her!
