All of Me by Billie Holiday features 10 standards performed by the famed Jazz Singer.

For most of her life Billie Holiday; the First Lady of Jazz, offered the world the sound of a voice, the like which it will never hear again. Billie Holiday, whose inspiration was more instrumental than vocal, used to say that her aim was to get Bessie Smith’s feeling and Louis Armstrong’s style. She had her whole being in singing and left behind her a legacy of superb vocal jazz recordings. The compelling tracks on this historic album were transferred from the original 78 rpm transcription master.
