INCLUDES NEW SPECIALLY PREPARED LINER NOTES BY PENGUIN GUIDE TO JAZZ'S WRITER BRIAN MORTON AND BY PARIS'S PRESTIGIOUS JAZZ MAGAZINE

“Body and Soul must be a contender for that “finest album” spot. It catches her at a time when the melodic invention and rhythmic suppleness of earlier days has given way to a more deliberate, almost speech-derived style which places greater emphasis on the lyric than on the harmonies.” - Penguin Guide to Jazz

“Surrounded by exceptional musicians, Billie Holiday expresses a contained but palpable pain which, even if we could neglect to take it seriously, reveals the inner narrative and almost biographical dimension of the words of these standards, and offers the privilege of hearing them like never before, and probably never since.” - Jazz Magazine
