The hypnotic art of singer Cassandra Wilson has taken many forms through the years, but it seems uniquely suited to the music of Billie Holiday. Brilliant performance at Munich, Philharmonie, December 6, 2014.

To celebrate the centenary of the birth of Billie Holiday, the label Salento Dodicilune proposes "Hunger and Love". "Hunger and Love" traces the furrow, with deep devotion but with the spirit of this time. In the wake of Hal Willner, and his works transgender, the label offers an original production that brings together the great female voices of Italian jazz. A tribute sincere, deep, not handwriting.

The title of Tara O'Grady's third album comes from a bass player in Nashville who upon hearing her sing in the Tennessee recording studio, tweeted the above quote to describe her voice. Her original songs were inspired by Irish people she met from Belfast to Butte, and everywhere in between. And she throws in a few favorite Irish traditional tunes for good measure. Inspired by Belfast native Van Morrison, her brother Tom O'Grady composed the music for To Be Missing the Sun and La Dee Da, and the featured saxophonist/clarinetist Michael Hashim co-wrote That's What the Miners Would Say, a tribute to the Irish immigrants who died in a fire in Butte, Montana.

After his tribute to female singers he made this set as a tribute to Billy Holiday. Well-meaning, but definitely not his best.

Eight years after he won Australia's heart and went on to record seven chart-topping albums with worldwide sales exceeding half a million units, Mark Vincent is about to set a new benchmark: a 'virtual duet' with one of the giants of the Golden Age of Hollywood, Mario Lanza. In his forthcoming album, 'A Tribute To Mario Lanza,' Mark sings alongside Mario in 'Because You're Mine,' one of the legendary movie star's biggest hits. Re-mastered and re-edited, the song, taken from the MGM musical of the same name, is given a fresh and brilliant new dynamic with the addition of Mark's rich tenor tones.

Queen. They made music that was so unique, there aren't really that many bands that have been brave enough to attempt cover versions of their songs. Few singers, after all, want to have their voice compared to Freddie Mercury's, few guitarists can negotiate the tightrope wire between dazzling technique and melodic playing as skillfully as Brian May.
While some bands are all about The Sound, and others are all about The Song, Queen excelled at both. Sumptuous productions, virtusoso performances and a willingness to go out on a limb meant that you were guaranteed to hear something you'd never heard before, while the songs got their finely honed hooks in you and refused to let go…

There was never any disputing the strong country influence Eilen Jewell brought to her retro-pop-folk, so it's no surprise that she detours into this short but extremely sweet tribute to one of her obvious influences, Loretta Lynn. It's a natural side road, especially since Jewell's sumptuous voice is similar to Lynn's, as is her delivery. Jewell already recorded Lynn's "The Darkest Day" on her previous album, but the dozen selections here are not the coal miner's daughter's best-known tunes, despite the obvious resemblance of the cover art to 1968's iconic Loretta Lynn's Greatest Hits. Rather, the tracks are carefully chosen to reflect only Lynn's original compositions that highlight her often defiant, genre-expanding lyrics and diverse topics, which range from offbeat gospel ("Who Says God Is Dead") to brazen infidelity ("Another Man Loved Me Last Night.").

Sometimes the artists' styles don't really mesh well with the music, but at other times, the reinterpretations can be fresh and compelling.
