Lady Sings The Blues

I also experienced Lady Sings the Blues again, the story the great jazz singer Billie Holiday whose records I have on several disk sets. The film follows her life and addiction with loss of licence. And struggle to regain with a concert at Carnegie Hall, the classical music venue which also hosted some key Jazz performs including Benny Goodman where I still hold the two volume LP set. Although she make to Carnegie Hall going back in drugs she fails to regain her licence and dies at the age 44 but her back catalogue is extraordinary and makes her one her jazz immortals. The film is week made with Diana Ross in the role and making a good stab at recreating the voice.
