A collection of quotes by Billie Holiday on music, actress, songs, writing, singer, life, love, holiday, addiction, drugs, kiss, feeling, rain, walking and friends. Eleanora Fagan, renowned by her professional name Billie Holiday, was an American singer and songwriter, who is known as one of the best exponents of jazz music in the 20th century. According to most scholars of music, Holiday remains one of the most important influences in the history of not only jazz but also pop music. The fact that she never received any formal training in music makes her achievements even more staggering.
After a turbulent childhood, Billie Holiday began singing in nightclubs in Harlem, where she was heard by the producer John Hammond, who commended her voice. She signed a recording contract with Brunswick Records in 1935. With their arrangements, Wilson and Holiday took pedestrian pop tunes, such as Twenty-Four Hours a Day (number 6 Pop) and Yankee Doodle Went to Town, and turned them into jazz classics. On October 4, 1944, Billie Holiday entered the studio to record Lover Man, saw the string ensemble and walked out. The musical director, Toots Camarata, said Holiday was overwhelmed with joy.
When Billie Holiday was given the accolade it meant something: she was one of, if not the, best jazz singers of all time. It was a song that resonated with many servicemen overseas and their wives and lovers back home. In February 1945 Billie appeared at The Philharmonic Auditorium on a JATP concert, the first of many, and the following year she featured in the movie, ‘New Orleans’ that also featured Louis Armstrong. Jimmy Monroe, the man who the federal prosecutor described as the, worst type of parasite you can imagine, lost no time in getting Billie back into her bad habits. She got arrested again on a similar charge to her conviction, but this time she was acquitted.
