Billie Holiday – All Or Nothing At All (1959/2012)
DSF 2.0 Mono DSD64/2.82MHz  | Time – 00:51:12 minutes | 2,02 GB | Genre: Jazz
Source: ISO SACD | ©  Verve Records
Recorded: Radio Recorders and Capitol Studios, Hollywood, California on August 14 & 18, 1956 and from January 3-9, 1957

Recorded in 1956 and 1957, All Or Nothing At All was one of Billie Holiday’s last releases before her death in 1959. A collection of jazz and pop standards by the Gershwins, Irving Berlin and Duke Ellington, among others, the album was produced by legendary producer Norman Granz. Holiday runs the emotional gamut from summery optimism (Love Is Here To Stay) to pathos-rich musings (Ill Wind) backed by a strong studio lineup of veterans including Red Mitchell on bass and Ben Webster on tenor saxophone.

“These seven West Coast recording sessions – two dates in August 1956 and a marathon five in one week following January with Sweets Edison, Ben Webster, and Jimmy Rowles – together make the most satisfying set in the singer’s Fifties discography. In fact, this is the one program to put up against her Thirties recordings.”- Verve Music Group

“These are all truly classic Verve titles that you simply don’t want to miss…most importantly, the sound of these reissues is nothing short of astounding. Particularly the early Billie and Ella mono records are incredible treasures of sonic beauty!” – Danny Kaey, Positive Feedback Online, November/December 2011
