During the last ten years of her life (which ended prematurely in 1959 when she was only 44), Billie Holiday recorded for jazz producer Norman Granz, who teamed her up with some of the best jazz figures of that era. "The Unforgettable Lady Day" (Verve V-8338-2), released in 1959 just after the singer’s death, compiles some of her best sides from that period, featuring such stars as Ben Webster, Harry “Sweets” Edison, Charlie Shavers, and Oscar Peterson, among many others.
