Comment:

Lady Day’s languid phrasing and quavering delivery gave her the expressiveness of a blues artist, conveying deep sadness and personal experience in an unparalleled fashion. Hard living took a devastating toll on her vocal cords, and her late-career output for the Verve label — about a third of her entire recorded catalog — was undertaken with her health failing and her voice fraying. Still, it includes some of her most emotionally resonant sides: “One for My Baby (And One More for the Road)” emerges strongly from the shadow of Sinatra’s celebrated version, and the imperfections of “Don’t Worry ‘Bout Me” only add to the palpable sense of heart-wrenching sadness.
