Billie Holiday : Remixed & Re-Imagined

Not just another in a series of remixes of classic tunes, this is well worth a listen for anyone who likes female jazz vocals. Particularly noteworthy are the following : Trav’lin’ All Alone [Nickodemus & Zeb Remix], He Ain’t Got Rhythm [Poppyseed Remix] and Summertime [Organica Remix]. 

To fully appreciate any remix, I’d suggest becoming intimately familiar with the originals first – it’s practically impossible to go wrong with Billie.

If not vinyl, please get the CD version – heavily compressed music aka MP3=bloodless / lifeless / no good.
