Southside Johnny Performing The Music Of Billie Holiday
SOUTHSIDE JOHNNY PERFORMING THE MUSIC OF BILLIE HOLIDAY
"Billie Holiday's voice is one of the more evocative memories from my childhood. My parents would come home from work and put on music. Mostly jazz, some jump blues, and even some old-fashioned low down blues. But after my brother Tom and I went to bed, they would put on Billie holiday. We had no heat upstairs, so we had to leave the door open to our bedroom, and that voice would float up with the warm air. I remember at first really liking the upbeat stuff she did. She sounded like she was having great fun with the band. But I was also moved by the deep sadness in her voice on the ballads.
