Throughout these sessions, a window into Billie Holiday's creative process is provided by the inclusion of alternate takes. Many of them are rare, although all have previously been issued on one or another of the labels that have interacted with Commodore over the years. As alternates for records on other labels also reveal, once Billie conceptualized her approach to a song, she seldom varied the basic template. She seemed to decide the best way to organize the expressive gifts at her disposal and "photograph" in her mind a musical image of how she would do the number. Once that image was in place, subsequent versions for the most part differed only in matters of nuance or animation.

Nowadays, the majority of those with two ears and a heart recognise her magnitude, whatever their usual musical preferences may be. This unanimity undoubtedly stems from the fact that Billie's voice reaches our greatest depths. Nobody has been troubled by her range, or by limited technical means the singer was offered, although she never needed anything other than her voice to shake the entire planet. Perhaps because Billie sang simply of love and love's desillusions, and the listeners are moved even without particularly grasping the textes. However, what we may hear is the result of a double paradow: vocal mastery, the placing of each syllabe, the perfect expression of each word confirms a tremendous virtuosity, the fruit of long experience; the emphasis put on the songs' lyrics, not often despairing all considered, come more from the despair of the interpreter than their actual contents…

Billie Holiday's recording career can be viewed in three distinct phases. The singer's evolution begins with the Vocalion/OKeh/Columbia years, steadily maturing throughout the Commodore, Decca, and latter-day Columbia sessions, then ripening into music of incredible poignancy as she recorded almost exclusively with Norman Granz for his Clef and Verve labels during the 1950s.

It's fitting that singer Billie Holiday began the most celebrated part of her career with Columbia in 1933, when the country was in the throes of the depression, and ended it in 1942, when the world was gripped by war. Her anguished delivery fit in perfectly with the times. As she projected the torments of her life through music, she gave us an escape from our own troubles, by reminding us of how bad life could get. Regardless, Holiday's sublime Columbia recordings, which originally appeared on the Brunswick, Vocalion and Okeh labels, are among the true treasures of jazz. The complete recordings were released a few years ago in a mammoth box set. This four CD collection pares the material down considerably, although the producers have not just taken the cream of the crop…

Questo album dedicato alla straordinaria figura di Billie Holiday è parte integrante del progetto teatrale “IO sono Billie”, scritto e interpretato da Valentina Mattarozzi. Essenziale come lo spettacolo stesso, proprio perchè si vuole raggiungere l’essenza della sua espressione artistica e arrivare al nucleo della sua anima che ha generato la magia dell’interpretazione di Lady Day. Senza usare inutili sovrastrutture, che coprirebbero la bellezza della semplicità di Billie, la quale colpiva profondamente i cuori degli ascoltatori, motivati da quella scossa emotiva che puntualmente forniva durante i propri concerti.

Forget for a moment that The Best of Lady Day: The Best of Billie Holiday was tied into the release of the superb box set, Lady Day: The Complete Billie Holiday on Columbia (1933-1944), thereby offering a bit of advertisement to the full-fledged set. That doesn't matter – even if there was never a box set, this would have been a welcome addition to Billie Holiday's catalog, since it's the first concise, yet comprehensive, introduction to her groundbreaking, perhaps greatest, recordings.

Thomasine vive da mesi nella grande casa di Henrietta, dove ci sono tante camere e lunghi corridoi, ma nemmeno uno specchio. Suo padre passa le giornate al capezzale dell'anziana prozia malata, mentre lei gira per la casa con i cugini: la piccola Signe, l'odioso Erland, e Wilma, più grande, che fa la prima superiore e ha due anni più di Thomasine. Un giorno Signe scopre che gli specchi di casa sono tutti ammucchiati nell'armadio di una stanza ottagonale. Thomasine e Signe ci entrano insieme, chiudono l'anta alle loro spalle e… quando ne escono, si ritrovano in una casa che è uguale e diversa al tempo stesso. Di cosa si tratta? E chi è quella ragazzina, Hetty, vestita alla marinara? Ciò che i cugini scoprono non è affatto un altro mondo. Può far paura, a tratti, ma li aiuterà in un modo che non avrebbero mai creduto possibile.
