Eleanora Fagan (April 7, 1915 – July 17, 1959), better known as Billie Holiday, was an American jazz singer with a career spanning nearly thirty years. Nicknamed "Lady Day" by her friend and music partner Lester Young, Holiday had a seminal influence on jazz music and pop singing. Her vocal style, strongly inspired by jazz instrumentalists, pioneered a new way of manipulating phrasing and tempo

Born in the poor part of Baltimore to two teenage parents, Billie turned to music as a way to support herself. At 15 years old, after moving to New York City with her mother, she started singing in Harlem nightclubs for tips. At 18 years old, record producer John Hammond discovered her at a club and took her under his wing. She quickly became of the most coveted singers around, performing with the Duke Ellington orchestra and then eventually Count Basie and Artie Shaw. In fact, Holiday was tapped to sing vocals in front of Teddy Wilson and his Orchestra for this session, which included Buck Clayton on trumpet, Buster Bailey on clarinet, Lester Young on tenor sax, Freddie Green on guitar, Walter Page on bass, Jo Jones on drums, and Wilson himself piano. Wilson’s strident lines drive this track, along with the guitar playing of Green (who later became a permanent member of the Count Basie Orchestra).
